At Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C., our New York divorce attorneys and lawyers are familiar with handling high net worth cases. Any divorce involving a spouse or spouses who have many assets can be complex and time-consuming. That is why we believe it is so important to work with a divorce attorney who can ensure these assets are protected.
Whether going through a contested divorce or uncontested divorce, when a great deal of assets or property are involved, a lawyer will play a crucial role in helping to protect his or her client’s assets. High net worth cases don’t have to take so much time and legal counsel as to exhaust part of the income/assets you have worked so hard to earn. At our firm, our New York divorce lawyers have the experience and expertise to provide knowledgeable legal counsel that can avoid unnecessary time and expense.
In a high asset divorce, just as in other New York divorces, such issues as child support and spousal support, or alimony, may arise and will need to be resolved. Additionally, prenuptial agreements may play a major role; and a New York divorce lawyer experienced with high net worth cases will be needed to assist in enforcing or challenging this agreement. It is important to note, at this point, that equitable distribution (as referring to the division of property in a divorce) does not refer to “equal” distribution. You will most likely need an attorney to help protect your rights and assets in these cases.
Some of the issues which may arise include:
- Professional licenses or degrees held (which offer increased earning potential)
- Stock options, IRAs, 401(k) accounts and pensions
- Real estate / real property
- Family businesses
- Professional practices
High net worth divorces require the experience of a knowledgeable divorce lawyer. Not only are these cases complex, but the financial details will be best resolved with the help of an attorney who has the resources to fully investigate sources of assets and income and help protect the client’s financial interests.
At Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C., we have over forty years of combined experience in divorce and custody cases and use this to our clients’ advantage. Our firm also utilizes experts in various fields as needed, to assist with resolving issues of property and asset distribution.
