Helping You Maintain Your Existing Lifestyle After A Divorce

In high net worth divorce cases, maintaining the assets and lifestyles of each of the spouses is of primary concern. It is key to determine the manner in which assets were acquired, what kind of value has been created long-term, and the earning capacity of investments, businesses and other income and assets. That information must be weighed against each spouse's earning capacity and the assets available to him or her after the divorce.

Ideally, a balance is struck through property division and spousal maintenance awards that allows each spouse to walk away from the marriage without any substantial decline in lifestyle. This can be particularly complex when an asset, such as a business or farm, must be divided or sold in some way.

The fact that one spouse may have made the business a success through his or her hard work and dedication does not necessarily entitle that spouse to ownership of the business. We will help you through that process.
