HIGH ASSET DIVORCE
Dividing marital property is consistently one of the most challenging aspects of a divorce, and is even more so in a high asset divorce case and/or high net worth divorce. Determining the value of assets can often become contentious between the parties, sparking much disagreement about the appraisal methods employed. In a high asset divorce case, misrepresentation of assets as well as hidden assets and income are much more prevalent. McIntosh lawyers, PC uses expert services in high asset management to provide credible supporting evidence for your case and challenge assertions made by the opposing party.
Various techniques can be utilized to discover hidden assets and/or the allegation of hidden assets, including but not limited to interrogatories, request for production of documents, request for admissions, subpoenas and depositions.
Property division in a high-asset divorce case often includes:
- Division of multiple residences and real-estate holdings
- Division of stock and investment portfolios
- Division of assets of closely held businesses
- Valuation of assets including: deferred compensation and stock options, businesses and partnership interests, professional practices, and real estate investments
- Assessing the validity and enforcing prenuptial agreements
- Spousal support and alimony
- Complex legal matters, such as reservation jurisdiction and qualified domestic relations orders
In the event one is dissipating the marital estate, including bank accounts, lines of credit, currency, assets, collectibles and jewelry, relief through the Court can be obtained by filing a Petition for Special Relief seeking an injunction to freeze the marital estate and to provide for an accounting and the return all funds dissipated.
