A high asset divorce is a divorce that involves a lot of assets. People own a lot of real estate. They have a lot of stock. They have a lot of money. They have a lot of investments. I think the biggest reason why it's important to hire an attorney for a high asset divorce is simply because of the complexity that comes with a large estate. It's typically comprised of a very complicated compensation schedule for one or both of the spouses.
Investment accounts that could be extremely detailed and require detailed tracing to determine separate property components and community property components. You have to analyze records. It's not uncommon in a high asset divorce to be faced with reading and reviewing and analyzing 100,000 pages of documents. And this is not something that is easily done by somebody who is not experienced doing it.

The time to talk to an attorney about the consequences associated with divorce, the planning for divorce and what to do next, should not be after you filed a petition.
