Pennsylvania High-Asset Divorce Attorneys

If you are approaching a high-asset divorce, you likely understand that much of the outcome will be the equivalent of a high-stakes business deal. Dissolution of a marriage has much in common with the dissolution of a business partnership. Whereas you and your spouse have likely possessed a marital estate consisting of financial instruments, real property, vehicles and more, a divorce will require division or reallocation of each asset.

High-asset divorces often pose special challenges for both spouses, regardless of who has earned more, who may retain possession of the marital home and who will have primary custody of children if applicable. Determining the actual income earned through a cash business, determining the value of a business or professional practice, and determining how debts should be divided are a few of the problem areas that often require special attention. Investments, retirement assets and health insurance may all figure into settlement negotiations.

Many people are concerned about containing costs of legal fees. While this is a very important issue, it is also paramount that no assets be overlooked and that a person approaching a divorce understands his or her rights.
