High Asset Divorce Attorneys in St. Louis

Helping You Keep What Is Rightfully Yours

During a divorce, assets and debts incurred over the course of the marriage belong to both partners.

We can help protect your rights, providing you with well-informed legal advice that is grounded in decades of experience and research.

During a divorce, our St. Louis divorce attorneys can provide legal representation in the following areas:

How Is Debt Divided During a Divorce?

All debt incurred during the length of the marriage is considered marital debt. During a divorce, marital debt is split between both spouses either by mutual agreement or by a judge. Both parties can come to an agreement without the need for a judge by signing a marital settlement agreement. However, when an agreement cannot be reached, a judge will need to determine the division of debts.

Your Business During a Divorce

In St. Louis County, a business that was created during a marriage is recognized as marital property, meaning that both spouses have an equal share in ownership. Therefore, even if one spouse is listed as the sole owner of the business, the courts will often give ownership to both spouses. If you are seeking to protect your business assets during a divorce, our experienced St. Louis divorce attorneys can help.

Legal Help With Investment Funds

During a divorce, the courts will take into consideration investment funds that are recognized as marital. Investments purchased prior to the marriage, and where no contributions were made with marital funds during the length of the marriage, will be considered separate property. However, things become a bit more complicated when the investment fund was purchased during the marriage or when contributions were made to an investment fund that was purchased before the marriage. With both spouses trying to justify what portion of the investment belongs to them, the division can be difficult. Due to these challenges, it is recommended that you seek the legal services of our divorce attorneys in St. Louis.
