Protecting Your Interests in a High-Asset Divorce
Experience Makes a Difference
When a divorcing couple owns a wide range of assets, it is critically important that each spouse has a knowledgeable attorney to protect their rights and interests. For example, questions may arise as to the enforceability of a prenuptial or antenuptial agreement, or with regard to tracing a premarital asset. There may also be different perspectives about the value of an asset, such as a business. The process of identifying and valuing all complex assets included in equitable distribution in the state of Minnesota can be extremely challenging for anyone who does not have experience in this specific area.
