Why Choose a Pennsylvania Attorney Who Specializes in High-Asset Divorces?
Your divorce may be one of the most emotionally difficult periods of your life. But it is also important to remember that divorce is, in a sense, a business transaction. You and your spouse have spent years or even decades building assets and managing bills and debts together, and you are entitled to an equitable share of the work your marital estate represents.
Financial and business issues loom largest in high-net-worth divorces. A divorce may be considered “high net worth” if:
- One or both spouses are high income earners, and/or
- The couple has accumulated significant assets.
Because the earnings and assets involved in these divorces are often complex, so are the issues that surround ensuring that each partner receives an equitable share of what both have worked to build, without confusing marital assets with individually-owned assets. Just a few of the items that a high-net-worth divorce may require include:
- Focus on complex property division,
- Property and business valuation,
- Care handling division of pensions, investments, and other assets.
The portfolio of marital assets requiring division may include real estate, time-shares, family or closely-held businesses, stock options, investment portfolios, retirement and pension plans, inheritances, and valuable items like artwork, classic cars, or antiques.
When young children are involved or issues of wrongdoing are brought into the picture, the work can be more complex. Choosing an attorney who specializes in high-asset divorces and who understands your need for discretion, therefore, is crucial.
