High-Net-Worth Divorce

Going through the divorce process can be complicated for any couple with joint finances. However, high-net-worth couples face additional stressors when determining how to split complex asset portfolios and fairly restructure their joint assets.

If you are planning or going through a high-net-worth divorce, you need a competent attorney on your side to ensure that your rights and assets are protected. Schedule your strategy session with our professional high-net-worth attorneys so that you can get the help you need and deserve.

Who Needs a High-Net-Worth Divorce Attorney?

Sometimes, the judge in a divorce case is able to split the marital property 50 / 50 without any issues. However, the vast majority of high-net-worth divorce cases are not so simple.

Working with an attorney can be highly beneficial if you and your spouse:

  • Have shared assets that are difficult to divide, such as a businesses or real property
  • Cannot reach an agreement about the division of property
  • Do not agree with the judge’s assignment for asset division
  • Need a creative solution for a complex problem.

How Is Marital Property Divided In Florida?

In a divorce, Florida law separates property into two categories: marital property and non-marital property. Marital property is property acquired by either spouse during the marriage, while non-marital property was acquired before the marriage.

Florida typically uses a 50/50 split system to divide marital property. However, in a case in which a judge believes a 50/50 split would be unfair to either spouse, they may consider all relevant factors and determine another proportion to divide the property.

If the couple has property that is difficult to split — such as real property or businesses they do not want to sell — the judge may award the asset to one spouse and award an equally valuable asset to the other spouse. This process can be complex and this is why working with an attorney, and often a forensic accountant, throughout the process is essential.

Why Are High-Net-Worth Divorces Complicated?

Dividing marital property in high-networth divorces often requires more consideration than in traditional divorces. High-net-worth couples sometimes have nontraditional assets that are challenging to value and equally divide between spouses.

Additionally, the process of valuing and inventorying all of the assets shared between a high-net-worth couple can be time-consuming. The couple may have trouble determining which property is shared and which is non-marital property. They may also disagree about the division of their assets.

If you are navigating a high-net-worth divorce, our attorney team can help protect your rights to your property and ensure a fair division of assets.

Can You Benefit from a Marital Settlement Agreement?

If you and your spouse do not want to split your property 50/50, you can consider a marital settlement agreement. In a settlement agreement, you and your spouse can agree upon the assets you both will keep after the divorce. This can help you avoid additional delays and difficulties while determining the division of the property.

However, unless you and your spouse are already in total agreement about the division of your assets, you may have trouble reaching a settlement agreement. Tax considerations can further complicate matters. Working with an experienced attorney can help you clarify and communicate your desires for your property during this process. Your attorney can also provide legal advice and guidance to improve your outcomes.

Contact The Family Matters Law Firm to learn more about marital settlement agreements.

Just a example It took 5 yrs my Ex was Very Angry Sadly she found a Attorney who promised here everything she wanted just lies after lies he was a very Cruel Human being just drained her she spent over 250k and ended up receiving 225k as Equity Distribution

  • The most effective, intelligent and caring divorce lawyer in Miami.

    Emily Phillips successfully helped me to resolve a highly bitter divorce case with an excellent outcome! My ex was unreasonable and only out for blood and revenge. Her attorney only cared about taking my money and padding his pocket by filing lawsuit after lawsuit. He didn't care about the effect of litigation on my child. Emily put a stop to the shenanigans. She is a bright, intelligent, caring, reasonable, and most importantly, a very effective lawyer!
