High-Income Divorce

How high-income divorces differ

For the most part, matrimonial issues are generally the same for all divorces. Those who are divorcing must address applicable legal matters, including property distribution, spousal maintenance, child support, and child custody, just to name a few. High-income divorces differ because of the complexity of these issues. Multiple properties, professional practices, businesses, stocks, and other investments can impact a divorce based on the contested issue of the division of assets. Complex family structures and an established quality of life can compound issues like child custody and child support. Alimony can be an overwhelmingly intricate matter to resolve as well. It is important to retain the services of an experienced attorney.

High-income individuals are exposed to legal troubles

When a divorce is litigated, parties open themselves up to the process of discovery. While couples do disclose information when divorcing through mediation and collaborative divorce, a deeply contested divorce can bring with it a certain vulnerability. Couples can easily be exposed to a government-ordered probe, diving deeper than most disclosures. A forensic accountant can dig deeper than what is shared in a net worth statement. If a court was to find discrepancies that would interest the Internal Revenue Service, they are mandated reporters, meaning that they would have to share their findings, leading to further exposure to legal issues.

Prenuptial agreements

It is important to consider options that protect oneself from the vulnerability of divorce for matters like alimony and property distribution. Through the execution of a prenuptial agreement, a marriage can conclude with many financial issues already addressed through a legal contract. Though a prenuptial agreement comes with a certain degree of stigma, it is an important tool to protect oneself from an uncertain future. If you need to draft and implement a prenuptial agreement, contact our office to be of service.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
