A safety net is important for couples with high net worth so that, if they decide to divorce, dividing the assets isn’t as complex or exhausting as it could be. This is why couples with high net worth often establish trusts as part of the estate planning process and arrange for the distribution of assets to family members, charities, and other beneficiaries. In the event of divorce, the trust must be accurately valued and assessed as part of the division of complex property.
If you and your spouse possess a family trust, make sure that you receive the divorce and property division legal help you need by contacting Neal Ashmore.

Inheritances and Assets
Most individuals facing divorce have a strong interest in protecting what they perceive to be their property. This interest is often heightened when the assets formerly belonged to another loved one and/or the inherited property was bequeathed directly to the individual and not the individual and his or her spouse. If you face divorce and are concerned about losing a portion of an inheritance during the divorce process, contact the Lewisville, Texas, law firm of Neal Ashmore. A committed divorce lawyer with experience solving your specific issues can provide invaluable legal assistance.
We begin the process of protecting inheritance assets by asking key questions. Were your inheritance funds commingled with other marital property? Did you receive your inheritance assets prior to or during your marriage? And did your inheritance assets increase in value during your marriage?
