Wisconsin High Asset Divorce Process

On behalf of Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C.

Divorce can easily be categorized as one of the most stressful events that can occur in one’s life. In a high net worth divorce, this is especially the case. Many assets exist, multiple of which are not cash. Some of these assets include stocks, real estate, businesses and antiques. 

Under Wisconsin law, property that is considered marital property is to be divided equally.

However, in a high net worth divorce, co-mingling of assets can blur the lines when determining marital vs. non-marital property. The help of an experienced attorney when making this determination is paramount, as there is a lot at stake amid a high asset divorce. A mistake in your divorce process could very well result in the loss of large fortunes.
