High net worth divorce? How lawyers help you protect your assets

On Behalf of | Jun 4, 2015 | High Asset Divorce

In a high asset divorce, both parties have much to lose without the proper guidance. Managing complex issues like property division, spousal support and investment or retirement accounts in a divorce is not for the faint of heart. Divorces that involve large amounts of valuable assets typically require the use of well-honed legal techniques in conjunction with superior fact-finding skills. This ensures you will come through your divorce with your rights and your money intact.

These skills and more are what an attorney experienced in high net worth divorces can offer those facing the end of a marriage. Below are some of the techniques a lawyer can use on your behalf in a divorce.

Finding Hidden Assets — Unfortunately, some spouses attempt to hide some of their assets during divorce proceedings. High asset divorce lawyers know how to seek and find these hidden assets.

Putting Business Experience to Work — Most attorneys who work with high net worth cases have business knowledge to use on the client’s behalf. This is of great value when it is time to separate or divide business assets and personal assets.

Accurate Asset Valuation – Knowing the precise value of business and marital property is critical in a fair divorce. Lawyers familiar with high net worth can assist in accurately valuating these properties with techniques learned through education and hands on experience.

Professional Network Leveraging – Finally, one of the best ways divorce attorneys can help is by leveraging their vast network of professional resources. This includes consultants, forensic accountants, pension experts and many others.

The takeaway here is that even though reaching an equitable divorce agreement can be difficult when valuable assets are involved, help is available whenever you need it. Take an in-depth look at our website to learn more about divorcing with high net worth assets in Florida.
