When a married couple has a lot of assets or high net worth, including extensive real and personal property, dividing that property in a divorce can be complex and contentious. Make sure you are represented by an attorney who will protect your interests throughout the property settlement negotiation process.

Higher value assets usually indicate a complex financial picture with diverse income and investments. Liquidating and dividing those assets is not an option if you want to maintain their value. You need a divorce attorney who understands the need for asset protection as well as the requirement for a fair and equitable division of marital property.
- Discretion is important in family matters — especially in a high-asset divorce. At our law firm, we work with our divorce clients to develop separate agreements that will not be a part of the public record.
- If you own a business or if your spouse owns a business, it is probably in the best interest of both of you to keep your business viable and growing. Your divorce lawyer can work with you and accountants to determine how to accomplish asset protection while ensuring that both spouses receive fair value from the business.
- How much does a business make? How much is your income and your spouse's income? If one spouse has hidden assets or is under-reporting gross income, it can make a difference in property division, the time and length of alimony, and the amount of child support. Our lawyers use forensic accountants to ensure a fair and accurate reporting of assets.
- What are the marital assets? Any assets acquired during the marriage (except gifts and inheritances) are generally considered to be jointly owned by both spouses.
- If the existence of hidden assets is discovered after the divorce is final or if your ex-spouse does not meet the settlement agreement requirements, we can take your case back to court for a divorce contempt action.
