High Asset Divorce Archives

When the queen weighs in on a high asset divorce

Imagine what would happen if mothers-in-law in the United States were allowed to determine how marital assets should be divided in divorce.

Washington happens to be one of only nine community property states; this means that, even in a high asset divorce, all marital property is divided 50/50 between spouses, and a mother-in-law has no say.

Washington readers may be interested to learn that there appear to be certain issues that can serve as warnings of serious marital problems.

Some of these issues are not all that surprising, while others may come as a great surprise.

The former couple has a 4-month-old daughter whom, Subkoff claims, Fischer has never even met.

Study in Washington suggest divorce rate coincides with vacations

Washington couples often follow similar customs and patterns as other families throughout the United States. During a typical year, married couples often participate in repeated patterns of celebration involving birthdays, anniversaries, national holidays and family vacations. What may come as a surprise to many, however, is that studies suggest divorce rates often coincide with these special times.

What Johnny Depp, divorce and Washington couples have in common

Every marriage is different: some last a lifetime while others end with contentious debate that couples determine cannot be resolved.

Protecting business interests in a high asset divorce.

Washington business owners may face some particularly challenging situations with regard to companies started before marriage should the marriage later end in divorce. Many times, one spouse has entered a marriage as a business owner and continues to build upon the business without input or assistance from the other spouse.
