Butler High Asset Divorce Lawyer
The more money involved in a divorce, the more complex and sensitive it becomes. Individuals or spouses with occupations that are publicly sensitive, such as CEOs, professional athletes, and entertainers, have the added pressure to remain out of the public spotlight. For these types of high-asset divorces, you need to work with a Butler divorce attorney with experience handling complex divorce and negotiations, particularly if your profession may become entwined with the outcome of your divorce. Here at Bunde & Roberts, P.C., our Butler high asset divorce lawyer can help you navigate this tricky situation whether you are the higher earning spouse, the lower earning spouse, or if both parties have high incomes or assets.
Complex Issues in Many High Asset Divorces
High asset divorces present a number of much different complexities and issues than regular income divorcing couples. Your attorney needs to be competent in all of the following areas to properly handle your high income divorce:
- Valuation of real estate and business interests;
- Division of business assets;
- Uncovering hidden assets;
- Tax implications of divorce;
- Valuation and apportioning of securities assets;
- Drafting QDROs (qualified domestic relations orders);
- Alimony in high asset divorce;
- Deferred compensation, including IRAs;
- Knowledge pertaining to trusts, inheritance, and insurance policies;
- Knowledge of how unreported income impacts child support; and
- Media knowledge and privacy issues.
Property Division in High Asset Divorces
High-asset couples are actually more prone to divorce than low or average income couples, according to CNBC News. The most complicated aspect of a high asset divorce, other than keeping the divorce as private as possible, is division of marital assets. All marital property—assets and debt acquired during the marriage—are subject to equitable division. As wealth increases, individuals are more likely to distribute their money more widely, particularly in real estate, business interests, stocks, and fixed income investments, according to CNBC. Here at Bunde & Roberts, P.C., we specialize in all of the following types of assets pertaining to division of property in high asset divorces:
- Real estate;
- Retirement accounts;
- Pension plans;
- Stocks and stock options;
- Deferred compensation; and
- Asset investments including jewelry, art, automobiles, clothing, antiques, and more.
In order to carry out all of the specialized work we do for our clients, here at Bunde & Roberts, P.C., we employ forensic accountants, business valuation experts, economists, real estate appraisers, employment experts, actuaries, jewelry and art appraisers, and other experts to determine the value of assets and debt, ensure that there are no hidden bank accounts that you do not know about, and guarantee that we get an accurate assessment of all marital property that should be equitably divided.
