Suffolk County High Net Worth Divorce Lawyer

Discrete Representation for Your Private Matters

In any divorce there is a lot on the line, and this is particularly true in cases of high-net worth divorce. Given the substantial assets involved in cases of this nature, it can be extremely difficult for a couple to resolve the issues of property division and asset division amicably. For high-profile couples looking to end their marriage, these tasks can be equally, if not more, difficult. Therefore, our law office offers discrete representation provided to you by a Suffolk County divorce attorney whose intentions are to maintain the privacy of our client as they complete the process of a high-net worth divorce in New York.

Your Sworn Matrimonial Net Worth Statement

In cases of high net worth divorce, one of the most important documents will be the sworn matrimonial net worth statement, which must be filed no matter how much money a divorcing couple has between them. For persons of high net worth, however, this sworn document could play a major role in the procedures that are utilized during the processes involved in completing the divorce process. This document, which must be sworn to under penalty of perjury, serves as an indication of how your family lived during the duration of your marriage. Upon review of the matrimonial net worth statement, your attorney can determine your financial needs, and establish the feasibility of affording any costs that might arise as the divorce proceeds.

The typical aspects of your family's lifestyle might become critical aspects in the process of a high-net worth divorce, because it must be determined whether or not your family was living within its means. Salaries, bonuses, credit card expenses, the number of households, etc. need to be assessed before the process of negotiation or mediation begins. In this way, you can be sure that your best interests and the wellbeing of your financial assets will not be jeopardized during the procedures that follow. It is also at this time that real estate assets should be reviewed, because these are aspects that will undoubtedly be discussed during the processes involved in officially dissolving your marriage as well.

What are the complex issues that need to be addressed?

The division of property is often considered first by individuals who are considering divorce, whether the dissolution of their marriage is one of high net worth or not. Of particular concern to high-net worth individuals, are additional resources, assets, and pieces of ownership such as the following:

  • Investments
  • 401k plans
  • Retirement accounts
  • Family businesses
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Family trusts
  • Executive trusts
  • Real estate holdings
  • Offshore investments

Cases of high net worth divorce very often involve many more assets, and much more money, than typical cases of divorce, making the need for an attorney who excels in this area of the law a necessity. As real estate and high-value assets are divided, you need to feel confident in your attorney's ability to apply proper value to these items. Only a high net worth divorce lawyer can be trusted to do so.
