Our Minnesota divorce attorneys begin our legal partnerships with the understanding that each of our clients is unique and so are their post-marital needs.

For over 20 years, our experienced divorce attorneys at Heimerl & Lammers have customized legal solutions for spouses who were seeking both contested and uncontested divorces that were settled through litigation and mediation to ensure our clients’ rights were protected throughout the complete process — from filing to finalization. One of the major differences in the types of divorces we handle is high asset divorce and how it affects the process differently than a traditional divorce might.

High asset divorce attorneys have the experience and the resources necessary to assess each case with a deeper knowledge of the marital holdings, which includes more than standard valuations of the couple’s shared home, bank accounts, and debts.

They involve the much more complicated holdings couples with higher net worth share, which may include an extensive list of assets, companies the spouses own together and separately, and unique tax considerations that must be considered when dividing the property between the two parties.

While the assets associated with the marriage may be extensive, the unique path of these cases often hinge on one spouse being unaware of the total assets at stake and how we can help account for them to broaden their share of the marriage’s overall property division.

How Can a High-Asset Divorce Attorney Help Me Uncover Hidden Financial Resources?

At Heimerl & Lammers, our skilled divorce attorneys know that high asset divorces typically include significant and complex financial holdings, which may only be fully known to one party.

When one party is unaware of the extent of the assets involved in their divorce, including everything from real estate holdings and bank accounts to jewelry and artwork, it is up to our experienced lawyers to outline those assets, as the division of each still applies.

These major assets are not easily identified or divided without the help of an experienced high-asset divorce attorney who will outline the marriage’s assets with a structured approach that also uncovers any hidden resources.

Our high asset divorce attorneys in Minnesota will take the necessary steps to partner with experts who will help evaluate your marriage’s true financial standing, including:

  • Forensic Accountants
  • Investment Professionals
  • Asset Evaluation Specialists
  • Tax Law Consultants

Combining the skill sets of our high asset divorce attorneys and knowledgeable financial professionals allows Heimerl & Lammers to design creative opportunities to recover the assets you are entitled to, which may also include spousal support.

What if I Signed a Prenuptial Agreement Before Getting Married in Minnesota?

Prenuptial agreements are not uncommon when one spouse has significantly more wealth than the other at the time of their marriage. This is especially true when one spouse owns a business or several companies that require protection from becoming shared assets that can be divided during a divorce.

Contrary to popular belief, prenuptial agreements are not fully iron clad, and may be challenged in Minnesota for the following reasons:

  • Both spouses used the same counsel to construct and validate the agreement
  • All financial holdings were not disclosed in the agreement
  • The agreement was not entered into voluntary, including any evidence that coercion, fraud, or duress was used to obtain a signature
  • The incapacity of one spouse during the signing
  • The agreement has unconscionable provisions or is entirely unfair to one party

The validity of a prenuptial agreement may become increasingly important during high asset divorces, as there is much more at stake when it is time to divide the marital property. Our divorce attorneys will help you determine what you are entitled to and how we can help you obtain your equitable share.

No matter which side of the divorce you are on, the spouse who has higher assets and an increased net worth will typically be in a better position to contest their divorce, which could include more than just the property division, but child custody, parenting time, and child support issues that are incredibly important to your family’s future.
