Colorado Springs High Net-Worth Divorce Lawyers
Protecting Your Assets in Complex Property Holdings
Divorce is never easy or simple, except in rare cases. For many couples, the division of marital property and debt is one of the most complicated issues that must be resolved and is often a contentious one. Ensuring that you get your fair share of everything you have worked for over the years of your marriage is vital to positioning you for future financial security.
For couples with high net worth, this issue is even more complex and often even more adversarial. With so much at stake, you will want to bring in an attorney that focuses on Colorado divorce and who is experienced in handling the complications of identifying, locating, valuing, and dividing assets and property properly with legal strategies that will protect your interests.

These estates usually involve a value of more than $1 million, excluding your primary home.

High Net-Worth Divorces & Colorado Law
Colorado operates on the policy of “equitable distribution” of marital property and debt in divorce. This means that courts will divide assets as fairly as possible. However, courts may look at many factors in determining this issue in seeking to ensure that it is as equitable as possible.
This becomes all the more complicated when dealing with estates with a high income, valuable and varied assets, established investments, and those involving out-of-state or overseas accounts that may involve interstate or international laws. Another factor that may become relevant is the matter of hidden assets that may need to be traced and recovered to ensure a fair result. Hiding assets is a serious matter in divorce as the offender can be held in contempt of court for doing so with negative consequences.
Assets in High Net Worth Estates
High net-worth estates often include the following:
- Residential and commercial real estate
- Business interests/assets from small businesses or due to corporate holdings
- Professional practices
- Stocks and bonds
- Retirement accounts or pensions
- Revocable and irrevocable family trusts
- Valuable artwork, jewelry, antiques, or collectibles
- Offshore accounts
- Boats and yachts
- Assets and property protected in prenuptial or postnuptial agreements
Dealing with a high-asset divorce commonly requires the services of financial and other experts, such as accountants, tax professionals, appraisers, business valuation experts, or others. Input from these sources ensures that you not only benefit from our Colorado divorce law knowledge and experience but from their advice as well in matters involving consequences and considerations. For example, tax considerations when selling or dividing assets are an important aspect of this issue as is the matter of marital debt. Our team can help you sort these issues out for the optimum effect with the assistance of financial professionals.
