High Net Worth Divorce & Property Division

Similar to all other kinds of divorce, high net worth divorces also involve issues such as child custody, alimony, and child support.  The difference with high asset cases comes down to the determination of income and the division of property. Properties and assets in these types of divorces tend to be much more valuable, varied, and may come with a significant consideration for taxes. High net worth divorce cases may include distribution of:

  • Businesses
  • Stock options
  • 401(k)s
  • Pensions
  • Retirement benefits
  • Trust funds
  • Employee profit sharing plans
  • Real estate property/investments
  • Offshore bank accounts
  • Savings
  • Executive bonuses
  • Licenses
  • Other employee benefits to consider in the marital division

Business owners can have a particularly tough time during the process of a divorce simply because it is often difficult to determine marital property from non marital property. Determining and defining marital property is only half the battle as the next step is figuring out what assets are actually able to be divided. High net worth professionals and executives may have various numerous forms of income, status, stock options,  and other financial incentives that are extremely complex.

Dividing property equally or so that is beneficial to both parties is more challenging in a high net worth divorce and we are ready and prepared to help you. If you are in need of a Melbourne attorney well versed in high net worth divorces, give us a call today at (321) 259-3100.
