Pursuing an Equitable Distribution of Community Property in High-Asset Divorces

Rhode Island is an equitable distribution state. This means that any property you owned before getting married will remain with you after the divorce is finalized. Property you and your spouse purchased together will be split equitably.

This does not necessarily mean a 50/50 split. For example, if your ex-spouse keeps the family home, attorney Flanagan will negotiate for you to keep property equally the value of the home. At Flanagan Law Offices, LLC, we have the skills and legal resources to determine the true value of your marital estate to help ensure you maintain a fair share of the assets. Divorce attorney Flanagan can consult forensic accountants and other financial experts to determine which assets are part of your marital estate, such as:

  • Real estate investments
  • Family businesses
  • Primary residence or vacation home
  • Antiques or collectible cars
  • Stocks, 401(k) plans, IRAs and other investments

High net worth divorces can be particularly complicated based on how assets and debts were handled during the marriage. We have experience consulting forensic experts to trace how separate and joint finances were managed. For example, if your spouse’s inheritance was commingled with your joint finances, this money would be considered part of your marital estate. We work with industry-leading experts to trace any hidden assets and determine the value of your community property. High-asset divorce attorney Flanagan has the skills and legal resources to help ensure you maintain an equitable distribution of the marital estate.
