Complex High Net Worth Divorce Cases
If you are filing for divorce, and you have a large amount of assets and property, it's to your advantage to work with a divorce lawyer who has experience handling complex high net worth divorce cases. Due to the amount of assets, money and property involved, high net worth divorce cases can be exceedingly complex. With so much at stake there is much more to gain or lose, depending on how your case is ultimately resolved.
Property Division in a Complex High Net Worth Divorce
Property division is typically the most challenging of all the issues that need to be resolved during a high net worth divorce case. There is a lot of property "up for grabs" in these types of cases: large bank accounts, real estate investments, offshore accounts, stock options, large pensions or 401ks, trusts, business ventures, etc. In New York equitable distribution laws state that marital property must be divided "equitably," regardless of whose name is on the title, as a result, your spouse may try to hide certain assets he or she wishes to protect. If you hold the title to the majority of the assets, and your spouse is requesting an unreasonable amount of the assets or property, we can help to ensure the judge does not divide and allocate the property in a way that is unfair to you. We can also ensure that you receive the property credit for any pre-marital or separate assets.
