Boynton Beach Attorney Experienced in High-Value, Complex Divorce

Every divorce is different, and each case lives or dies on its specific facts. Some cases are fairly simple, particularly if there are not many assets for the divorcing spouses to quarrel over. However, in cases where high-value assets are at stake, more complications may arise. Business interests, trusts, stocks and bonds, and valuable real property may all add certain complexities to a divorce case.

When a couple divorces, their marital property will be divided between them. Often, the property is not divided equally, but rather subject to “equitable distribution.” This term means that each spouse will get what is fair based on factual circumstances, such as the length of the marriage and each spouse’s earning capacity (among other factors). Take a moment to consider the difficulties in dividing hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars worth of assets between two clashing spouses. Clearly, such complex divorce cases need a practiced family lawyer who understands such technical financial matters. With my experience comes a network of financial experts who can assist in valuing your business interests, real estate, and other high-value assets. These valuations will be crucial to determining distribution during the divorce.

Some complex divorce cases are decided by a judge. However, it is more common for these cases to be settled out of court. Parties have the option to negotiate their own settlements and decide what they believe is fair property division. Depending on your circumstances, out-of-court settlement may be beneficial. Who would you rather decide how your financial assets are split: a judge or you and your spouse? In addition to having more control over property division, an out-of-court settlement can decrease your legal costs and speed up the entire divorce process. I can help you determine if an out-of-court settlement is appropriate in your case. If such settlements do not resolve all major issues, you can rely on my trial skills to persuasively represent your interests in the courtroom.
