We deliver conclusive results for individuals in high net-worth divorces:

  • Locate hidden assets and protect your personal property
  • Manage the protection and division of businesses
  • Valuate investments, stocks, bank accounts, retirement plans

Protect Your Property During Distribution

The main difference between most divorce and a high-net worth divorce is the value of the assets involved. Because Florida is an equitable distribution state, it is paramount that marital property and personal property are correctly identified. When it comes to high-value assets, a small error could result in you losing an extremely important piece of property.

We help high net-worth individuals protect all kinds of assets, such as:

  • Bank accounts
  • Boats, sport vehicles, etc.
  • Businesses
  • Investments
  • Marital estates
  • Professional practices
  • Stocks, bonds, trusts
  • Vacation homes

Why High-Asset Divorce Are Complex?

High net-worth divorces are often more complex than divorces involving couples with fewer assets for several reasons:

  • Valuation of Assets: High net-worth individuals typically have diverse assets such as businesses, real estate, investments, and valuable personal property. Determining the value of these assets can be challenging and may require the assistance of financial experts, appraisers, and accountants.
  • Complex Financial Structures: High net-worth individuals often have intricate financial structures, including trusts, offshore accounts, and complex investment portfolios. Untangling these structures to determine each party's entitlement can be a complex process that requires specialized knowledge.
  • Tax Implications: Dividing significant assets can have substantial tax implications. Lawyers and financial experts need to consider the tax consequences of different settlement options to ensure that both parties are treated fairly and to minimize tax liabilities.
  • Spousal Support and Lifestyle Maintenance: In high net-worth divorces, one spouse may have become accustomed to a certain lifestyle supported by the wealth generated during the marriage. Determining appropriate spousal support or alimony payments can be contentious, especially if there is a large discrepancy in earning potential between the spouses.
  • Business Ownership: If one or both spouses own businesses, the valuation and division of these assets can be particularly complex. Issues such as the extent of each spouse's involvement in the business, the value of intellectual property, and future earning potential must be carefully considered.
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements: High net-worth individuals often have prenuptial or postnuptial agreements in place to protect their assets in the event of divorce. Enforcing or contesting these agreements can add another layer of complexity to the divorce proceedings.
  • Emotional Factors: While financial considerations are significant, high net-worth divorces are not immune to the emotional complexities that can arise in any divorce. Disputes over child custody, visitation rights, and other personal matters can further complicate the process.

Fair Financial Support & Custody Agreements In High Net Worth Divorce

When substantial assets are involved, it is possible for one spouse to take advantage of the other. We are dedicated to helping our clients protect their property and ensure that child support and alimony payments do not leave one spouse at an unfair advantage, or at an unfair disadvantage.

When children are involved, our Panama City high asset divorce attorneys fight to ensure that our clients' legal entitlement to a fair custody arrangement is not infringed upon in trial or negotiations.
