Complex Equitable Distribution/High-Asset Divorce
Equitable distribution of your marital estate is not simple math, especially when there are complex considerations such as separate property or business assets.
The family law attorneys of Mahoney Nashatka Richmond, PLLC provide sophisticated counsel for divorces involving high incomes and complex assets. Our team approach provides the analysis and strategy to reach a practical and efficient settlement of your property and finances.
Our years of experience dealing specifically in family law, and high-asset divorces places us in an excellent position for a favorable outcome of complicated matters.
We know these complex laws and have represented business owners, corporate executives, professionals and other high earners in these type of cases. Our lawyers capably address the common issues that arise in a high-asset divorce, including:
- Separate property vs. marital property;
- Valuation of closely held businesses;
- The marital residence and other real estate;
- Division of retirement benefits;
- Deferred compensation;
- Loans and debt;
- Spousal support (alimony);
- Premarital/Prenuptial agreements.
Our philosophy is to encourage mediation and negotiation, reserving court as a last resort. We explore creative options, such as buyouts and trade-offs of other assets, to divide your estate in a way that reflects your priorities. However, some issues of complex, high-asset property division in a divorce can only be resolved through litigation. At MNR, you are represented by skilled trial lawyers.
We guide you through the divorce process, preparing you for decision-making on the important issues: support, asset distribution, your children’s future, tax implications, business valuation tactics, best business practices and the consequences of your decisions.
