Divorce proceedings can be difficult to manage, especially when it involves the complex division of high-net-worth investments. Due to the amount of property and assets accumulated during the marriage, high-net-worth divorce can be very stressful for the parties involved when determining how to proceed in dissolving the union. It takes a skilled divorce lawyer to navigate the high level of complexity and to maintain adequate privacy for the individuals involved. The handling of high-asset divorce cases often entail a review of the prenuptial agreement, postnuptial agreement and other documentation regarding agreements made during the marriage.
Most high-net-worth divorce cases include more property and assets that will need reviewing, as well as specialized documentation outlining the types of accounts, property and assets an individual may have prior to, during and after the marital union. These types of investments include stock portfolios, domestic and offshore bank accounts, real estate investment properties, business ownership, pensions, 401k funds and IRA portfolios.
Since many high-asset divorce cases involve celebrities, entertainers and public figures, Ideal Legal Group’s divorce attorneys maintain an important level of privacy for each client. As examples of our work in high-net-worth cases, we have:
