The knowledgeable and respected legal team at our firm is truly capable of handling high-asset divorce cases filed in the state of Washington.
Unique Considerations for High-Asset Divorce Processes
Some states honor approaches to property division issues that are relatively flexible. The state of Washington is not quite as accommodating as many other states are when it comes to this issue. Washington is known as a community property state. This means that – with very few exceptions – all assets and liabilities acquired during the course of a couple’s marriage are presumed to be jointly owned by both parties. As a result, the value of a jointly-owned marital estate must ordinarily be split evenly.
As our firm’s knowledgeable Washington high-asset divorce attorneys can attest, dividing a high-asset marital estate is far easier in theory than it tends to be in execution. Assets must be accurately identified and valued, which can take time and effort… especially if one party is hiding assets in an effort to preserve them for their own benefit. Once all assets and liabilities have been identified and valued, a strategy must be crafted to either amicably reach a fairly-valued division settlement or to advance the interests of one spouse or the other in a contentious legal “battle.”
Even when spouses are determined to keep their divorce process amicable, the nuances involved in dividing a high-asset marital estate tend to be complex realities. It is, therefore, important to understand your goals for this process and to secure the guidance and assistance of a savvy legal advocate.
