Boston High-Net-Worth Divorce Lawyer
If You Own Real Estate or a Business, Protect It in Court
Divorce is a process of not only separating emotionally but also financially. When one or both of the spouses has a high net worth, divorce becomes far more complex. There are more assets and liabilities to evaluate and divide, and the value of these assets can evoke animosity between the divorcing spouses.
If you are facing divorce, it is critical that you have a savvy Boston divorce attorney with experience handling high-asset divorces. At DiBella Law Offices, P.C., we offer our clients nearly two decades of experience helping Bostonians through family law conflicts. Call (617) 870-0907 to schedule a free initial consultation where we can go over your situation.
The Complications of High-Asset Divorces
When there are more assets to declare and divide, the property division between divorcing spouses can be contentious. Our Boston family law attorneys understand the importance of dividing the assets from a current financial perspective, and we also grasp the long-term implications of investments, businesses, and even taxes.
We will work with you to obtain a full list of assets, including:
- Businesses and professional practices
- Artwork or other valuable collections
- Personal residences
- Vacation properties
- Retirement accounts
In the event there are discrepancies between your asset disclosure and your spouse's disclosure, we work with a team of forensic accountants and other experts to investigate all assets being help domestically and internationally. If our financial specialists determine there has been an attempt to hide assets or misrepresent ownership in property or other investments, we can file a temporary restraining order to freeze all assets until a thorough examination is completed by the court. In addition to the division of assets, we will work to achieve a situation that will not force you to bear the burden of unfair future tax liability.
Dealing with Prenuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement may be in place to ensure each party retains ownership of the property or assets that he or she entered the marriage with. These agreements do not carry provisions for future assets or those assets obtained during the marriage. Each agreement needs to be reviewed to be certain it was valid at the time of execution, meaning neither party was forced to sign the document, and the agreement is considered fair and reasonable at the time of the divorce. Our team can evaluate your prenuptial agreement and work to ensure these documents are used to their fullest benefit.
Every Boston divorce represents a difficult and emotional process, but in the case of high-net-worth partners, the process can be much more complicated. Contact DiBella Law Offices, P.C., by calling (617) 870-0907 to schedule a consultation at our Boston office. We will explain your options and get started building the financial future for the rest of your life.
