How Are Assets Divided in Divorce in Utah?
Utah is an equitable distribution state regarding marital assets in a divorce. However, the term “equitable distribution” can itself be somewhat confusing. Equitable does not necessarily mean a 50- 50 split; equitable distribution means that marital property is divided equitably depending on what a spouse brought to the marriage.
Because of the increased number and value of the assets that you’re dealing with in a high net worth divorce, the process of dividing them can be challenging and is often aggressively contested. Therefore, you’ll want to work with a legal team that will apply a thoughtful and strategic approach to your case to work toward the best possible resolution.
In a high net worth divorce, some of the assets that will be taken into consideration will include:
- Bank accounts
- Retirement accounts
- Real estate or other property holdings
- Personal assets
- Business Interests and Assets
- Intellectual property
- Pension funds
- High-value art or collectibles
High asset divorces can be complicated when there are extensive paper trails, accounting, and timelines that must be investigated and considered when determining who is entitled to all or a portion of those assets. If your divorce counsel does not understand the inherent challenges that can arise in a high asset divorce or fails to adequately evaluate your situation and strategically plan for negotiations or litigation, it could cost you significant time and money.
