California high-asset divorce: the same, yet different?

One commonly held notion that many people have about high-asset divorce as compared with more "typical" decouplings is that dissolutions involving comparatively outsized wealth are flatly different in all respects.

Although the sheer amount of assets at play in a given divorce will reasonably differentiate it in some material ways, of course, that same high-asset divorce might feature a number of concerns that are also shared by splitting couples in less well-heeled divorce proceedings.

Where children are involved, for instance, divorcing couples are universally concerned with things like child custody, visitation and support. A parenting plan might certainly be influenced by wealth, but it is not defined by it. Children's interests -- not homes, jewelry or investment accounts -- are paramount when they are at center stage in divorce negotiations.

In other words, couples across the entire stratum of wealth often have common concerns, with some divorce-related considerations being differentiated only in terms of magnitude.

Having said that, though, there is no denying that considerable assets in a marriage can make for singular divorce discussions and outcomes. As we note on the High-Asset Divorce page of our California family law website at Thomas Law Offices, there are unquestionably "unique needs and concerns that people have when there is [financially] a lot at stake."

In such cases, those aforementioned investment accounts, homes and other types of property might be critically important in a division of assets.

Our firm commands nearly a decade of experience diligently representing the interests of high-asset divorcing parties across much of Southern California, with our offices in Woodland Hills and Newport Beach providing easy access to our clients across the region.

Indeed, and as regards financial matters, there is much to think about where high-value assets are concerned, including their identification, valuation and equitable disposal.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)


    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
