What Are High Assets in a Texas Divorce?

"High asset" refers to divorces where the marital estate is considerably sizeable, often exceeding one million dollars. 

This can include various assets, such as:

  • Investment and retirement accounts (401(k)s, IRAs, stock options)
  • Real estate holdings (primary residence, vacation homes, investment properties)
  • Business ownership interests (family businesses, partnerships)
  • Valuable possessions (artwork, jewelry, luxury vehicles, planes, boats, and collections)
  • Inheritances received during the marriage

Why Are High-Asset Divorces More Complex?

These divorces involve more than just emotional strain. The substantial assets require careful valuation, division, and tax consideration. Complex issues can arise, such as identifying separate property; these are assets acquired before marriage or through inheritance which requires meticulous documentation. 

Dividing extensive assets can lead to significant tax consequences that need careful management to avoid unnecessary liabilities. 

Business valuation may be required to value and divide ownership interests in the company fairly; the expertise of forensic accountants or business appraisers is common. Furthermore, dividing retirement accounts often involves Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs} to ensure proper distribution. These court orders allow a spouse, former spouse, or dependent to receive a portion of retirement benefits from the other spouse's retirement plan. 

Depending on the income disparity between partners, spousal support calculations can become intricate, considering factors like earning capacity and the length of the marriage. Furthermore, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements often come into play. These may demand thorough review and possible litigation. 

Accurate asset valuation and determining the best way to divide assets while considering each party’s financial future and tax implications are critical. These divorces may also involve public figures or individuals with significant privacy concerns, necessitating discreet legal handling. 

Professionals & Experts Who May Be Needed

High-asset divorce often requires a multidisciplinary approach involving experts such as forensic accountants, business appraisers, tax consultations, financial planners, and mediators. You may need to track, analyze, and value financial holdings and uncover hidden assets. 

Accurate business valuations and planning post-divorce financial strategies for both parties may be required. Mediation may be needed to help negotiate settlements and reduce conflict.
