Nashville Same-sex Divorce Attorneys Advocating for Clients Through Division of Assets

Skilled representation regarding asset division for LGBTQ clients throughout Tennessee

Same-sex couples face some unique challenges when it comes to asset division. More often than we might like, one party is denied his or her fair share of the assets or property because of considerations outside of his or her control.

The Nashville same-sex divorce attorneys at Miller Upshaw Family Law, PLLC are prepared to meet the challenges that your divorce case may present. LGBTQ clients may face a number of difficult challenges when it comes to dividing assets that opposite-sex couples may not. We provide aggressive yet practical guidance designed with your needs and goals in mind.

Potential complications regarding asset division in Nashville same-sex divorce

Some of the complications associated with property division in same-sex divorce flow from the fact that the couple may have made contractual financial agreements with one another that pre-dated their legal ability to marry in Tennessee. These situations present a challenge to sorting out an equitable distribution of the assets and debts that the couple has amassed in their time together. The court typically looks at how long a couple has been married, and how each has contributed financially or as a homemaker during the marriage and household when they are considering the equitable distribution of the couple’s marital assets. We work to make sure that you come away with the best financial outcome possible for your divorce.

Complex asset division

Couples who have complex estates that include a business (or multiple businesses), homes in Tennessee and abroad, investments, antiques, jewelry and extensive art collections will face a few challenges when it comes to dividing up the property. There may be disputes about ownership, valuation, and both parties wanting to take possession of certain assets.

Some of the issues that we deal with when addressing complex property division in same-sex divorce include:

  • Valuation and division of business assets
  • Division of vested and unvested retirement accounts
  • Investments, stocks, bonds and mutual funds
  • Division of assets in high net worth divorce
  • Hidden assets
  • Foreign accounts
