HIGH NET WORTH DIVORCE


Why You May Need a High Net Worth Divorce Attorney?

Most divorce attorneys in Los Angeles do not have the experience of dealing with prenuptial
and post-nuptial agreements, large estates, global properties, off shore accounts, interstate
and international family law disputes and division of patents, copyrights, royalties, and multiple
professional businesses and corporations. A high net worth divorce lawyer will have more
experience than the average attorney in dealing with the rigors of more monied and complex
divorce cases. Moreover, even among high net worth divorce lawyers there are those who
have experience with foreign assets and international family law disputes and those that do
not. It is up to you to query a potential attorney and find the one that can handle your specific
situation.


Elements of a High-Net-Worth Divorce

In the event that you cannot avoid litigation, there are some steps you should take in order to
better prepare yourself for the divorce proceedings. Mostly this will consist of you organizing
your estate’s financial information so that a qualified attorney and forensic accountant can
review it.

First, you should identify non-marital assets. Generally, any asset acquired before the
marriage, received as a gift, or inherited by the individual is considered as “separate” from
the marital estate. Next, you need to identify, to the best of your ability, all the assets and
liabilities that constitute the marital estate. These assets and liabilities will form the basis for
all future legal proceedings concerning the distribution of the marital estate. In some
circumstances, you may need to hire a private investigator and a forensic accountant in order
to insure that your spouse is not hiding any assets from you.

Lastly, once you have gathered the relevant financial information and formulated a strategy,
you need to consult a qualified attorney who can review your financial information and provide
the necessary expertise to effectuate your strategy in a legal context.
