What are some factors that impact a high net worth divorce in New Jersey?

Because of the greater assets and debts accrued over time, high net worth divorces are more complex. Nevertheless, they still revolve around many of the same issues, such as equitable distribution of property, child support and alimony. Numerous factors can impact high net worth divorces, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • A prenuptial agreement in place
  • 401(k)s
  • Defined benefit pension plans
  • IRAs
  • Restricted stock or stock options
  • Business ownership, including partnerships, limited liability companies and/or 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

How are assets distributed in a high net worth divorce in New Jersey?

The equitable distribution of marital assets will undoubtedly be a central factor for those who litigate a high net worth divorce.
