High Net Worth Divorces

No two divorces are alike, which means that no single approach to asset protection works in all situations. We will work carefully to identify all assets that may raise complex issues and will discuss your options on how best to protect yourself.

Individuals or families with extensive assets or high net worth have a lot at stake in divorce. At the Law Offices of Richard Young we have over 40 years experience in representing clients in high net worth divorce cases and other family law matters. We understand the complexities involved in defining what the marital assets are and how such assets should be valued.

In high net worth divorce, just as in other divorces, issues such as alimony or child custody may arise and will need to be resolved. Additionally, prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements may play a major role. An attorney experienced in high net worth cases will be needed to assist in enforcing or challenging these agreements.

We believe that a successful family law practice should have a team of professionals at their disposal, including forensic accountants, tax professionals, real estate appraisers, private investigators, psychologists and other professionals required to safeguard and protect the best interests of our clients. We may utilize one or more of these professionals in order to provide you with the very best legal assistance possible in your divorce or family law matter.

Some issues which may arise include:

  • Consideration of cohabitation agreements, prenuptial (antenuptial) agreements and postnuptial agreements
  • Valuation of professional practices and businesses
  • Income and earning potential of each spouse
  • Identification of community and separate property
  • Assets held in family trusts
  • Analysis of investments, including financial portfolios, stock options, IRAs, 401(k) accounts and pension/retirement plans
  • Valuation of real estate
  • Professional appraisals of personal property, art work, antiques and collectibles
