Splitting Property In A High Asset Divorce

The property division portion of a divorce can be one of the most contentious and complex issues of the entire process. There are many different assets that may pertain to your high asset divorce, and it can be hard to know if you are covering all of your bases along the way. With the help of a skilled attorney, you can get the guidance you need in your divorce.

At the Stamford office of Pyetranker, P.C., attorney Jacob Pyetranker knows the challenges associated with dividing assets in complex property situations. When every day takes more of your time and energy, his goal is to settle matters quickly, efficiently and in a manner that protects your best interests.

Knowing The Related Law

One of the biggest mistakes people make in Connecticut divorces is assuming that the assets in a divorce will divide in a 50/50 manner. Instead, the court uses a process called “equitable distribution,” which is when a court decides how assets will divide by considering factors like:

  • Length of marriage
  • The amount and sources of income each spouse has
  • The ages and health conditions of each spouse
  • The reason for the divorce
  • Each spouse’s ability to earn income or gain employment in the future
  • The contents of the estate

Although these are a few of the factors that a court commonly considers, it will also hear each spouse’s side of things before coming to a final decision. Attorney Pyetranker can help you build your strongest possible case for property division involving assets like retirement accounts, stocks, savings accounts, real estate property, business assets, digital assets and other valuables.
