Many of our clients have above average income and assets, and they appreciate the need for an experienced attorney who can analyze unusual situations and provide a clear explanation of their options. When assets are not easily divided or not liquid enough to divide, it’s important to fashion agreements that allow both to retain an ownership in a manner that is fair and reasonable – especially in a down market when the sale of such items would result in a financial loss.
Common Concerns for High Net Worth Couples
While the core issues surrounding divorce doesn’t change that much, there are many concerns unique to high net worth couples, including:
- Alimony in long-term marriages
- Complex financial litigation
- Division of businesses, profit-sharing, and estates
- Divorce tax questions
- Real property considerations
- Liquid and non-liquid asset distribution
In addition to these concerns, many high net worth couples facing divorce also have child custody and support considerations. Ensuring that you are able to preserve your relationship with your child is often the primary area of conflict with these couples.
