Georgia High Asset Divorce
For couples that either entered into marriage with large estates or accumulated sizeable assets while married, divorce proceedings can be especially complicated. Unfortunately, most high-asset divorces are contested matters, unless there is a pre- or postnuptial agreement already in place.
Protecting Your Assets During Divorce
If you have a large estate and are considering filing for divorce, it is important to consult an attorney who can devise an individualized asset protection plan that will protect your interests throughout the proceedings.
In order to protect your assets, you will need to make sure that as many of them as possible are classified “separate property.” An attorney can help you with the proper classification of your assets as well as ensuring that your real estate, businesses, investment accounts and professional practices are valued accurately.
Pre- and Postnuptial Agreements
If you have a pre- or postnuptial agreement in place, an attorney can help enforce or challenge the terms of the agreement to ensure fair division of assets.
