Differentiating simple and complex property division

The concept of divorce sounds simple. However, the more involved you become in the processes of finalizing a divorce, the more you may realize you must be involved so you can allocate the necessary focus to the division of your assets and property.

So what makes a divorce greater in terms of complexity?

Standard divorce cases involve the need for determinations regarding such things as:

  • Child support.
  • Child custody.
  • Temporary alimony.
  • Spousal maintenance.

Complex divorces have issues that are less common and typically result when the assets involved are worth more in terms of monetary value. These assets may be such things as:

  • Investments.
  • Bank accounts.
  • Stocks and bonds.
  • Inheritances.
  • Gifts.
  • Trusts.

Property division issues that arise in complex divorces are typically involving such issues as the division of:

  • 401ks.
  • Real estate.
  • Savings accounts.
  • Pensions.
  • Deferred compensation.
  • Royalties.
  • Offshore accounts.
  • Executive bonuses.
  • Hidden and commingled assets.

It is absolutely vital in any divorce to find an attorney you feel comfortable with and one who proves he or she will go to work for you to ensure you're financially protected coming out of a divorce. However, if you are facing a complex divorce with less common issues, the magnitude of a savvy lawyer is more crucial than ever. You don't want a lawyer who is not knowledgeable and inexperienced in high-asset divorces and their many intricacies. That deeper level of understanding will come into play when it comes to tax liabilities and the business consequences that may result from the dissolution of assets.
