Seattle divorce lawyer Eric Engel talks about how to protect your money and assets in a divorce, especially a divorce which includes high value assets.
You may be asking yourself how to protect your assets when it comes to a divorce. What if you have a portfolio worth millions of dollars? How much does each spouse get exactly or is the money all yours? In Washington, divorce is set as community property. This means that each partner gets an equal share of everything that the two of you have acquired and established during the divorce. There are some exceptions, but mostly you’re looking to when the portfolio was earning money during the time of your marriage. Was the money earned before your marriage or during? Was the money earned from your work or did you trade stocks? These factors will help determine how the finances are split in the divorce proceedings and exactly how your portfolio of assets will be distributed between you and your spouse.
