We Will Be Your Advocate Throughout The Process
Couples with a high net worth may have special concerns about the division of assets and debts, as well as the amount of spousal support, especially if one spouse did not work or had a significantly lower income. We have experience with these types of cases.
In a high-asset divorce, there are often sophisticated assets to value and divide. When appropriate, the firm consults with appraisers, business valuators and financial experts to ensure we have an accurate value of all assets, which may include:
- Homes, vacation property and investment property
- Boats and high-end vehicles
- Art, jewelry and other collectibles
- Businesses and professional practices
- Retirement accounts
- Stock portfolios
- Financial accounts
Once the assets are valued, we will determine whether they are marital or separate property. This can be a contentious process, but we will advocate strongly for your property rights.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are sometimes a factor in high net worth divorces. If you have a marital agreement, we will determine whether it is valid and how it affects the divorce.
