Divorce can be a difficult and emotionally charged process for anyone,
but for high net worth individuals, the stakes can be even higher.
With larger marital estates and more complex financial assets, divorce
proceedings can be more complicated and have greater consequences.
If you are a high net-worth spouse, hiring an financially savvy divorce
lawyer will put you in the driver’s seat!
As a seasoned divorce attorney/mediator and financially astute and extremely
experienced high net-worth attorney, I have 8 reasons to share with you
why you need a financially savvy divorce attorney:
1. Complex financial assets: High net worth individuals often have a range
of complex financial assets, including investments, businesses, and multiple
properties. It’s important to ensure these assets are fairly divided.
2. Large marital estate: The larger the marital estate, the more complex
the division of assets can be. Navigating these complexities and ensuring
a fair division of property takes skill.
3. Tax implications: The division of assets in a divorce can have significant
tax implications. Knowledge and clever guidance on the tax implications
of different property division options is imperative.
4. Business interests: When a high net worth individual owns a business,
the divorce proceedings can become complicated. It’s important to
protect the spouse’s business interests and ensure a fair settlement.
5. Protecting premarital assets: High net worth individuals may have assets
they owned before the marriage, and it is important to ensure that these
assets are protected in the divorce settlement.
6. Estate planning: Estate planning can be a complicated matter in the
midst of a divorce. A highly skilled divorce attorney can help ensure
that estate planning considerations are addressed and integrated into
the divorce settlement.
7. Retirement assets: Retirement assets can be a significant part of the
marital estate and require special consideration in a divorce. It’s
important to ensure that retirement assets are divided equitably.
8. International considerations: A high net worth spouse may have assets
and interests in multiple countries, which can make divorce proceedings
more complex. A highly skilled divorce attorney can help navigate these
international considerations and ensure a fair settlement.
Since asset division is key in a high net worth divorce, you will need
a divorce attorney, who is skilled with asset valuations, interpretation
of shareholder agreements, and the intricacies of dividing investment
portfolios and stock options.
If you have a high net worth divorce that requires smart decisions to manage
sensitive details call me, I will handle your divorce with expertise and
ensure you get the best results.
You may already be working with a tax attorney for help with your business
matters. But in your divorce, you will also need a divorce specialist
to guide you through the complexities of marital asset division, child
custody, spousal support, and child support.
I can also advise you on the best method for your divorce process whether
it be litigation or divorce mediation.
