Special Divorce Issues For High-Asset Couples

A high-asset divorce can become more complicated than an otherwise "straightforward" divorce if only for the fact that dollar amounts increase. There may be other factors that complicate a divorce, including complex property division, hidden assets and alimony determinations.

If you are approaching divorce proceedings and your financial stakes are high, we will approach your divorce with care, attention and detail. We will carefully review your case to uncover all of your issues — including the issues you didn't even realize you had. We will then lay out your options and help you determine whether your divorce will be contested or uncontested.

Property Division: What Needs To Be Accounted For?

High-asset divorces often require the division of valuable assets and property. Our firm works with forensic accountants, lifestyle analysts, and other experts in the valuation and division of marital property:

  • 401(k) and other retirement accounts
  • Pensions
  • Stock and investment portfolios
  • Vacation homes and investment real estate
  • Collectibles
  • Inheritances
  • Business investments
  • Family businesses and professional practices

Our firm will work hard to identify any hidden assets being held in overseas accounts or in other nontypical areas.

Securing Alimony/Spousal Maintenance For You

Many high-asset divorce cases require alimony orders. This is a sum of money paid from one spouse to the other following divorce. The goal of alimony is to allow the receiving spouse to maintain a similar standard of living as established in marriage. If you are seeking alimony, or if you are required to pay alimony, talk to an attorney. Although family law courts will ultimately decide an appropriate amount, we can help to ensure that all factors are considered in determining that amount.
