Divorce is a complicated, emotional process. For many, divorce may be the only legal issue they will face in their lifetime. The need for effective and knowledgeable legal support is important when facing such a significant legal matter. When a divorce is between people of high income, there are often more variables to take into consideration, including greater assets, higher profiles, and more.

Factors that can impact high net worth divorces
High net worth divorces are more complex because of the greater assets and debts accrued over time. High net worth divorces still revolve around the same topics, including property distribution, child support, and alimony. High net worth divorces can be impacted by numerous factors, including, but not limited to the following:
- Prenuptial agreements in place
- Defined benefit pension plans
- Restricted stock or stock options
- Business ownership, including partnerships, limited liability companies/corporations
- Professional licenses
- Involved tax structures and planning
- Offshore assets
- Bonuses that do not vest immediately
- Real estate holdings, including multiple properties and a variety of properties
- Widespread investments, including bonds, stocks, and investment properties
Marital property and high net worth divorces
For those who litigate the division of marital assets in New Jersey, the equitable distribution of marital assets will certainly be a factor. This legal principle ensures a fair and just allocation of marital assets. In addition, for those that litigate alimony and child support, the need for a full financial disclosure is more pertinent than ever. Those with great wealth face a more complicated assessment and valuation of marital assets. With this in mind, each party needs effective legal support to protect their interests. One party needs effective legal support to protect their rights as he or she may face an invasive investigation by a forensic accountant, working to uncover hidden assets and unreported income that a tax return will not always disclose. The other party deserves a tenacious advocate, tirelessly working to ensure a fair outcome.
