Preparing a High Net Worth Divorce Case
The preparation and research needed to carefully examine and provide the court with a detailed accounting of such assets as real estate and property holdings, off-shore accounts, businesses and corporate concerns can be quite lengthy. It requires a careful review by experienced financial analysts and forensic experts.
Among the many vital concerns that must be addressed in a high net worth divorce are:
- A review of any prenuptial agreement signed and the details therein
- All real estate holdings and any exemptions from equitable distribution
- All business, partnership or professional practice assets
- Retirement assets and pension benefits
- Stocks, bonds, and options
New Jersey divorce law is based on rules of equitable distribution. This means the division must be fair, but not necessarily equal. The larger and more complex the various elements that comprise the family's holdings the more the two parties and their lawyers will find ways to argue what is fair.
With over 30 years of experience, we will answer any and all your questions and explain the many choices you will have to make regarding the equitable division of marital assets and the different options we can show you to make the right choices to protect those assets and satisfy the law.
