In high-net-worth divorces, it is not uncommon for there to be great inequity of financial knowledge and experience. One spouse may have handled all the finances while the other has taken on other marital roles. When it comes time for divorce, the spouse with less financial knowledge is at a clear disadvantage. He or she must not only discover and identify the marital assets, but also ascertain their value to ensure that they’re properly divided.
The other spouse has a legal duty to disclose this information—and to do so accurately. The problem is that this doesn’t always happen. Especially in situations involving spouses who are self-employed or who run family businesses, assets can be underreported.
We have the experience to track down and assess the value of marital property, if the need arises. We team up with skilled investigators, forensic accountants, appraisers and other financial experts to protect your rights.

It is not just the amount of money that makes a high net worth divorce more challenging. The same legal principles apply to all divorce cases. The assets present in a high net worth divorce present unique and complicated tax and valuations issues, requiring a skilled hand to distribute and resolve the divorce equitably.
Like all divorces, where assets like savings, investment, and retirement accounts have to be distributed, in a high net worth case, other assets, like vacation properties, foreign properties, businesses, intellectual property and crypto currency have be distributed as well.
