High-Asset Divorce

Divorce can be a difficult process even under typical conditions. But with the added complexity of substantial personal or business assets, extraordinary measures may need to be taken to ensure that your rights are protected and your best interests are served. The need for financially educated and experienced professionals is critical.

The law requires an "equitable distribution" of the "marital estate". However, many details must be disclosed during the process including the extent and value of the marital estate, whether nonmarital property is to be excluded from division, and how an equitable distribution is best to be accomplished between the parties by the court – these are just a few of many issues that must be identified and resolved and for which the court may exercise broad discretion. The presentation of appropriate facts and relevant evidence is critical to ensure your interests are protected. Do you know the full extent and value of the marital estate? Are there properties or assets that might not be considered part of the marital estate because they were acquired prior to the marriage or as a gift or inheritance during the marriage, or are they protected by a prenuptial agreement?

We are skilled at discovering the relevant issues, uncovering the truth and creating effective resolutions to a wide range of difficult issues such as:

  • Proper characterization of property and assets as either marital or nonmarital
  • Hidden assets
  • Business valuation
  • Division of debts
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Debt restructuring
  • Business protection
  • Division of retirement accounts to avoid fees and penalties
  • Entitlement to alimony

The Need For Financial Experts

Finding the right answers to difficult questions often requires the use of experts such as forensic accountants, business valuation experts, vocational evaluators, CPAs and other professionals who can help untangle a possible web of complex financial issues. Our experience has taught us when the courts will require and rely upon the testimony and opinion of a financial professional.
