High Net Worth Divorce Property Division
All divorce cases will include some concerns and points of contention, such as child support, spousal maintenance, visitation agreements, and so son. A high-net-worth divorce becomes a unique legal issue once property distribution and debt division are considered.
With the greatly increased value of properties, larger tax considerations, and complexity of uncommon assets, using New York State’s equitable distribution requirements become considerably more intricate and delicate than divorces concerning an estate of lesser value. If you retain the services of an inexperienced divorce attorney, you could be risking significant portions of your prized valuables and pieces of your personal history.
When you work with our Long Island high asset divorce lawyers, we can review your assets, including:
- Life savings accounts
- Offshore bank accounts
- Privatized stock options
- 401(k) plans and work pensions
- Investments in business or real estate
- Family businesses or professional practices
- Professional licenses or degrees that increase earning potential
It serves well to be reminded that in New York, equitable distribution means “fair” and not “equal.” If you believe that you have earned the right to hold onto a piece of marital property due to your sole investment, care, or interest, one of our divorce attorneys in Long Island could potentially argue for you to retain it when the divorce finalizes.
On the other hand, we can use full financial disclosure techniques to ensure that your spouse has not attempted to hide valuable assets from your sight, unfairly keeping them out of the divorce proceedings. We have a vast network of forensic accountants, CPAs, and other financial specialists who are experts at uncovering hidden assets and trading accounts.
Tips When Divorcing with Large Assets
When couples divorce with significant assets, the stakes are incredibly high. Emotions can overtake logic and clients often resort to making decisions based on anger, guilt, or resentment rather than objectivity. Our Long Island high net worth divorce lawyers are always here to put your back on the right track and to provide you with honest, real solutions. We can be your voice of reason during these tumultuous times.
Below we offer some tips for clients facing high asset divorce cases:
- Be honest and disclose everything. Never hide assets or transfer properties under a third party's name. These actions will most likely be uncovered and you may end up being accused of fraud, which eventually ruins your credibility with the court.
- Don't waste time or money fighting over everything. You could end up wasting valuable time and money if you and your spouse fight over every single item or asset. Instead, be reasonable and try to work things out whenever possible through negotiation or mediation.
- Consult a team of experts. Even though you may feel a sense of urgency to end the divorce as quickly as possible, hastily agreeing to alimony or questionable asset division terms may end up jeopardizing your interests in the end. Always consult an attorney and experts to make sure that the terms are beneficial to you.
- Choose the right attorney. Hiring the most aggressive and toughest lawyer is not necessarily right for every situation. You should find a lawyer who has your best interests in mind - not just one who is concerned about extending your billable hours by prolonging a case in court.
