Get Aggressive Representation for Your High-Asset Divorce Case
Many clients have relied on our experienced divorce lawyers to protect their rights in a high-asset divorce. Such cases must be properly managed to ensure the protection of vital financial interests. We are highly adept at handling complex property division issues, including:
- Valuation of a family-owned business
- Division of retirement accounts (401(k), pension plans and other retirement accounts)
- Division of investment accounts
- High earner child support issues
- Spousal support claims
- Commingling of separate property and community property
- Hidden assets
Where helpful, we have the ability to enlist the services of accountants, business valuators, home and real estate appraisers, and other financial experts who may assist in the management of cases involving complex property division issues.
When issues arise regarding the alleged commingling of separate and community funds, investments, etc., it is essential to assess the case early and contract with the appropriate expert early. In addition, it is critical to acquire the necessary bank records in order to complete the tracing if possible.
High asset cases do not necessarily require the litigant to spent tens of thousands of dollars in fees. If the case is handled properly, and the parties cooperate in acquiring the supporting documentation, the case can be handled relatively cheaply.
Contact a Knowledgeable Divorce Attorney if Your Spouse Suffers from Internet Addiction
One issue that has been on the rise in recent years in divorce cases is addiction to the internet. A parent that spends an inordinate amount of time on Facebook or MySpace or wastes time when they could be spending productive time with a child is not fulfilling their role as a parent. That parent could have addiction issues or they may suffer from depression.
A child that lives with an addicted parent is not receiving the direction and guidance or the attention that they deserve. In addition, the participation of one parent in Facebook may encourage that party to drift from the marriage. Such issues may impact the rights of clients subject to a divorce in numerous ways and should be properly managed by an experienced divorce lawyer. Our attorneys are prepared to assist clients in such cases.
Our Family Lawyers Can Offer Straightforward Advice in Cases that Involve Home Foreclosure
Unfortunately, many husbands and wives face financial challenges during and after a divorce. Many individuals subject to a divorce may be dealing with a pending home foreclosure or may have already lost their home to a foreclosure. If you are at risk of losing your home to foreclosure, we offer assistance with home loan modification and short sales.
We also assist clients who are dealing with a deficiency that will arise, or which has arisen, as a result of a home foreclosure or short sale. The fact that you may face a short sale or foreclosure should not keep you in a relationship that is unbearable or miserable. We will advise you as to your rights if you are going through a divorce and facing this difficult financial challenge.
