Property Division Disputes In High-Asset Divorces


You and your spouse have worked hard to build a life together. You cannot imagine a future apart, but, unfortunately, even the strongest of marriages can crumble over time. When you have and your spouse have accumulated substantial assets throughout your marriage, your divorce can become much more difficult to resolve.

When the time comes where divorce seems to be a more likely option in your situation, you need an experienced attorney on your side. The law firm of Richard T. Bryant & Associates, P.C., has helped many Kansas and Missouri families through difficult property division disputes. Our lawyers will always be fighting to protect what is yours, inside and outside of the courtroom.

Focused On Your Best Interests

In many high-asset divorces, it can be difficult to know the exact amount of assets that belong to the parties. One of the spouses may try to hide or underreport assets in the hopes of retaining that property after the divorce. We use financial professionals to uncover these assets, so that we can present the full value to the court. We help with many different issues that arise in these divorces, including:

  • Determining the value of any business that belongs to one or both of the spouses
  • Helping parties reach an agreement on the future of any co-owned business entities
  • Working with spouses who have significant farm assets
  • Reviewing tax returns to establish the amount of self-employment income
  • Exploring the options available when dividing retirement accounts

In the majority of these cases, a trial will be necessary. The other side is just not going to make an offer that is fair, and we will need the courts to make a decision. We will present your specific concerns to help establish your specific requests.

We know that the outcome in your case is extremely important to you. You are depending upon us to obtain an outcome that meets or exceeds your goals. We take your concerns seriously, and you can depend upon us to be there for you throughout your case.
