How Our Team of High Net Worth Divorce Attorneys Can Help
Our Cherry Creek high net worth divorce lawyers can assist with every aspect of your financial issues, including:
Correctly Classifying Property
If your spouse is claiming that your separate property partially belongs to them or that marital property is theirs alone, our lawyers can help you accurately assess the situation. Some of the most important rules to know in Colorado regarding your property are:
- Nearly all property acquired during the marriage is marital property – Most property acquired during the marriage can be considered marital property, with the exception of property acquired as a separate gift or inheritance, property that was excluded through a valid marital agreement, or property that was acquired after a legal separation.
- It doesn’t matter how the property is titled – If your spouse only put their name on a house or checking account, this does not mean you are not entitled to the asset. The court does not look at whose name the property is in, but rather whether the property should be considered marital or separate property.
- Colorado is an equitable distribution state – Colorado does not necessarily assume that an even 50/50 split is the fair option for awarding property. The court can consider factors like which parent has primary custody of the children, the value of your separate property, and your and your spouse’s economic circumstances when the property is divided.
- You can decide how to divide your property – Colorado courts give a lot of difference to people’s ability to resolve legal issues in a way that is fair and just. Not all high-net-worth divorce cases have to be heavily litigated. You and your spouse may be able to save time and money by reaching an agreement regarding your property through negotiations, mediation, or arbitration.
We can use these rules to properly classify the property involved in your divorce.
When valuable assets are involved in a divorce case, special care must be taken to determine an accurate value for these items. Our network of professionals can help accurately determine the value of your property, including intangible assets and business interests.
If you suspect your spouse may have hidden bank accounts, hidden assets with friends or families, have undisclosed cryptocurrency, or have otherwise hidden assets, our team can help locate these assets so that they are accounted for and you have a fair divorce settlement.

Spousal support can be a hot-button issue, but having a knowledgeable Cherry Creek family attorney on your side can help you resolve support issues.
