Many of our clients have had personal businesses or have held senior level positions in large corporations. We use experts to obtain valuations, profits, compensation, and projections into the future. We use this information to negotiate terms of a settlement if possible, or to present as evidence at final hearing.
Real estate can include a primary residence, vacation homes and investment properties. It will be important to determine how the properties were purchased, their current value, who will receive them, and how will they be maintained.
Retirement can include pensions, profit-sharing, 401k’s, IRA’s 403B’s and much more. We want to examine all retirement accounts contributed to during the marriage by both parties. All retirement savings can be valued and divided so that your interests are protected.
We are looking for stocks, bonds, mutual funds, certificates of deposit, bank accounts, children’s accounts, time-shares, insurances, collectibles, and any other type of investments. The amount that was invested prior to and during the marriage is important information.
Prenuptial and post nuptial agreements:
A detailed review of these documents will help us understand agreements you may have made with your spouse prior to or even during the marriage. While you may have believed your agreement to be “air-tight”, changes in the law may have invalidated part or all of your document since it’s signing. If so, we will look for ways to legally protect you in a different manner. It is crucial for your attorney to have extensive knowledge of how these agreements came into being. The law can work in your favor.
Complicated tax structures and planning:
If you have substantial wealth, we will help you plan appropriately and avoid significant tax exposure. The financial details of your divorce should be scrutinized by a legal team and your accountants in order to limit your tax liability as much as possible.
