What assets need to be taken into account during a high net worth divorce case?
All assets that the couple owns, either individually or jointly. Remember, what is key is not whose name appears on the deed or title. Instead, what matters is when you obtained the asset. A very easy rule generally applies:
- If you obtained the asset while married, it is marital property.
- If you obtained the asset before getting married, it is separate property and not part of the marital estate.
