High Asset Divorce cases differ from regular divorce cases in a way that they involve higher stakes, namely in terms of the net worth of shared money and assets. As with any divorce case, high asset divorces are concerned with reconciling and appropriately dividing the couple’s shared assets. However, while many divorce cases involve the division of commonplace assets, high value divorces usually involve assets of greater magnitude. Some of these assets may include high-value property (homes, land, cars, and jewelry), business valuation (when both parties share ownership interests in a business in terms of real properties, investment properties, rental properties, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or equity), tax implications (the more money and valuable assets are involved, the greater the taxes that must be paid for them), and inheritance (division of wills, trusts, and estates).


In the “Family Code” section of Texas State Law, there is an established procedure regarding suits for the dissolution of marriage involving the division of the estate of the parties. The value of each party’s assets and the value of the community estate’s assets are the main factors that determine how a couple’s assets will be divided upon divorce. As established by the Texas’ community property laws, it is assumed by the court that the estate should be divided in an equal and just manner. In other words, half of everything earned or bought during the marriage belongs to each spouse, according to the court.


Divorce cases involving high assets should require thorough assessment of the marital estate, or assets that are acquired by both parties during the marriage. By understanding the collective net worth of assets, a more equitable resolution of the division of these assets may be more efficiently reached. While it is the job of the divorce attorney in accordance with the law to make these assessments, appraisers and financial advisors may be consulted when dealing with cases of such magnitude.
