Vancouver WA High Asset Divorce Lawyers
Advocating for Your Property Interests
One of the most contentious issues in a divorce involves the division of property and assets between the parties. When a married couple acquires things like houses, furniture, cars, and other types of property, the law presumes that both spouses jointly own them. However, a married couple can acquire an ownership interest for things like retirement plans, financial investments, and even small businesses. When a divorce involves such high-value assets, the related legal proceedings can become complicated.
If you are facing a divorce with complex issues related to high-value assets, you should seek the professional legal services of a Vancouver high asset divorce attorney.

Common High Asset Divorce Issues
Depending on the state where you filed your divorce, a court might use principles of either community property or equitable distribution to resolve property division issues. Washington is a community property state.
According to Washington’s community property rules, all assets acquired during marriage are considered to be community property that is subject to a “just and equitable” division upon divorce. In contrast, all property a party acquires before marriage or after divorce qualifies as their sole a separate property that is not divisible upon divorce. Courts are afforded broad discretion when deciding a “just and equitable” division of property between divorcing spouses.
You can count on the Pacific Cascade Family Law team to provide quality legal advice and advocacy for the following issues:
- Tracing property to community or separate sources
- Dividing out-of-state property interests
- Quasi-community property
- Valuing and dividing financial investments
- Appraising business ownership interests
