Understanding High-Net-Worth Divorce
A high-net-worth divorce is a divorce in which a couple’s combined net worth is greater than $1 million. These divorces follow the same process as standard divorces but have distinct nuances at every step that would benefit from the more skilled and delicate hands of our divorce attorneys at Webster & Garino LLC.
Division of Marital Assets
The biggest hurdle in high-net-worth divorces is the division of marital assets. In Indiana, there are set standards for this step. If there is no prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, Indiana courts operate on the one-pot theory. This means that all assets and debts owned by both parties from before and during the marriage up to the final separation are divisible.
And since Indiana is an equitable distribution state, the court presumes both parties are equally responsible for and entitled to a fair share of the marital estate within reason. In most cases, this results in a 50/50 split of all marital assets. When you work with one of our highly qualified divorce attorneys, you can evaluate whether arguing for a different division of the estate is plausible for your case.

The High-Net-Worth Divorce Process
Once you file or get served a petition of dissolution of marriage, you have a minimum of 60 days to prepare for the rest of the divorce process. In Indiana, this cooling-off period is used to ensure both parties want to move forward with the separation and also allows time for their attorneys to try to reach a solution outside of court. At Webster & Garino LLC, our high-asset divorce lawyers will spend this time diligently preparing for your case. In high-asset divorces, our seasoned team will use detailed tactics to get the outcome you desire. Our high-net-worth divorce process includes:
Appraising items like antiques, art, and collectibles.
Dividing interests in real estate, such as vacation homes and investment properties
Resolving high-conflict custody disputes.
