What Our High Asset Divorce Attorney in Denver Can Do for You

When it comes to dividing assets in a high-net-worth divorce, the first step is to identify all that exist. At this point, the assets must be classified as being separate or marital property. Once the assets are valued, our team can begin determining what would be considered an equitable distribution of your property.

Usually, our legal team will utilize the services of other experts to ensure we know the true value of your assets. Some of the these are:

  • Collections
  • Business interests
  • Real estate
  • Closely held corporations
  • Trusts
  • Retirement investments.

Our Denver High Asset Divorce Lawyer Will Handle All the Issues Related to Property Division

It can be challenging to divide assets in any divorce. However, when assets are higher in value, this can make it even more challenging to divide or monetize them. We will make sure to provide you with the representation you need and expect through the entire process. Our team takes pride in our ability to find the right solution for you when it comes to complex, high-asset property-division situations.

In the state of Colorado, it’s necessary for the property to be divided before we can address things like spousal support. This means that our team will work to ensure that we handle the decisions regarding property division as quickly as possible. We understand how to get things on track without rushing things, and we will take the time to negotiate as needed, all while keeping things moving expeditiously.

Colorado’s Rules on Asset Division

When you hire one of our high-asset divorce attorneys in Denver, you can feel confident that we will base all the negotiations regarding property division on the applicable Colorado laws. These laws outline certain rules that must be followed, such as:

  • Determining what is considered property
  • Figuring out whether items are separate or marital property
  • Determining how much both spouses led to the acquisition of all marital property
  • The true and fair value for all property
  • Ensuring that all marital property is divided as equitably as possible.

While it is necessary for all asset divisions to meet the guidelines set by the state, there are also some gray areas that give our high-net-worth divorce attorneys a bit of “wiggle room” to find solutions that work with the statute while also providing you with an agreeable outcome. We understand and will ensure that our clients understand that you can’t win all aspects and elements of the divorce negotiations. You can feel confident that our attorneys will put in time and effort to fully understand the issues that are most important to you, and then we will fight hard to ensure that you win these elements of the case.

Keeping Your Denver Divorce Proceedings Private

If you are going through a high-asset divorce, you may want to keep all the details private. Business leaders, public figures, and celebrities may want to keep the divorce proceedings out of the public eye. If you utilize our services early in the legal process, you can count on our legal team to provide you with the options you want and need to ensure that your divorce remains private in the state of Colorado.

Most of the aspects related to divorce in Colorado are available for a public search. The reason for this is that, eventually, they must be filed in a public court setting. Usually, the public record will include all hearings, orders, and trials that take place in the open court. However, there are steps that can be taken so that this information is not immediately available to the public. There are a few options that we can use to help you maintain some privacy as you move through the process of a high-asset divorce or if you are modifying your child custody orders.

It is worth noting that the options to keep a divorce case and the proceedings private are available to all people in the state, no matter their income levels. We will explain all the options that are available to help ensure that your divorce remains private.

When the Filings Become Part of Public Records

Once the divorce paperwork is filed with the court in Denver, then the case and names of those involved will be entered into public records. If you are a high-profile individual, it is also likely that the media will start to pay attention to what is going on and try to cover new developments in your case.

If you want to ensure that the media does not “catch wind” of the case and follow what is going on in real time, our team will work to help you reach a settlement agreement for your divorce before anything is filed in court. When we take this step, it means that the media will learn about your divorce only after you have the agreement in place. This also prevents them from creating stories regarding the “ugly” side of divorce negotiations. In most cases, since there’s no developing news, the media will move on and begin reporting on something else.

Our Process to Help You Achieve an Agreement in a High-Net-Worth Divorce

When you hire our high-net-worth divorce attorney, you can feel confident that we know the steps that must be followed to achieve a settlement in your case. Some of the ways that our team will work to help with the negotiations are:

  • Using the services of private mediators
  • Working with the attorney your spouse has hired
  • Using a parental responsibilities evaluator
  • Hiring a family or child investigator.

After the agreement is complete, the paperwork will be filed in court.


If you own a business, you will likely be concerned about what will happen with your business. The business may be separate property, marital property, or a combination of the two. Our attorneys will classify the business to ensure that it is handled properly.

The amount of alimony or child support that you must pay depends on the circumstances of your divorce. However, it’s reasonable to expect that the higher earners may wind up paying more for alimony and child support, which is called spousal support.

Even though the property that is divided in a high-asset divorce will not be taxable right away, there are some huge tax issues that need to be considered. Each type of asset will have a unique treatment when it comes to taxes. It is essential that you fully understand your potential tax liability after your divorce. The treatment of taxes is often complicated when it comes to some assets, which means we will provide advice regarding the right type of property division for your specific circumstances and what you can expect when your case goes to court.
