When it comes to divorce, Ohio is an equitable distribution state. High net worth divorces in equitable distribution states can be complex because a judge has to determine what is “fair” in dividing the marital assets. A divorce lawyer with experience handling high asset cases is an absolute must if you and your ex need to split up a significant amount of property.
High net worth divorces tend to be different than divorces with fewer assets for a variety of reasons:
Community property states divide marital assets based on as close to a 50/50 division as possible. The majority of the 50 states, Ohio included, split marital assets based on what is fair, not what is equal.
This is an important distinction because it can also impact how your assets will be divided. If any of the following are applicable to the dissolution of your marriage, be prepared for it to impact the division of assets:
On the other hand, if the reason for the divorce is simply “irreconcilable differences,” Ohio considers no one to be at fault. In those cases, behavior by either spouse during the marriage would not really be a factor impacting who gets what.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract signed before marriage outlining how assets and debts will be divided in the event of divorce. Now is a great time to dig your prenup out of the file cabinet and have your lawyer read over it. Sadly, only about 5% of couples have prenups.
