High-Asset Divorce Solutions
Our divorce lawyers can assist you with a broad range of legal and financial issues as we guide you through the divorce process. In a high-stakes, high-asset divorce, it is especially important that matters involving property division and equitable distribution are handled with care and attention to detail.
Our firm has access to leading experts in business valuation, forensic accounting and other fields who help us identify and value assets in a high net worth divorce. We are prepared to address a broad range of issues that surface in a high net worth divorce, including:
- Retirement assets (pensions, 401(k)s, IRAs)
- Real estate holdings
- Valuation and division of business assets
- International assets
It is not uncommon for the income of one or both spouses to suffer an unexplained drop when a divorce is imminent. When a person's income falls below his or her earning potential, or certain income does not show up on paper, the courts may impute income to that person. By imputing, the court is essentially increasing the person's reported income to the level of "earning potential" when calculating child support and/or spousal support.
Imputing income is one of the many issues our legal team can help you understand as we navigate you through the divorce process.
