Protecting Your Financial Interests in Divorce

If significant assets are involved in your divorce, you have interests that need to be protected. To ensure you get everything you are entitled to under Tennessee law, you should seek prompt legal advice.

At The Vaughan Law Firm in Knoxville, we understand what is at stake in divorce. For five decades, we have helped business owners, professionals and high net worth individuals protect their assets in divorce. We also represent spouses who want to ensure they obtain the assets they need to preserve their standard of living.

Understanding High-Asset Divorce In Tennessee

Tennessee is an equitable division state. This means that if you and your spouse cannot agree on how your marital property will be divided, the court will do so in a manner it considers equitable. Equitable may not mean equal, and it may not be what you would want to happen.

For example, the court may decide that an asset should be sold and the proceeds divided. However, selling an asset such as a home or a business may not be in the financial best interests of either party. Our founding attorney Larry Vaughan assists with complex property division issues, including:

  • Valuation of businesses and professional practices
  • Division of executive compensation such as stock options and deferred compensation
  • Protection of assets you owned before your marriage
  • Alimony computations
  • Tax implications of a marital property settlement

Mr. Vaughan has the skill and experience to resolve complex divorce disputes over the division of property such as business assets, real estate, retirement savings, stocks and other valuable assets. He is a certified mediator by the Tennessee Supreme Court and can assist in resolving your marital property settlement by way of mediation or litigation.
