Factors for High Net Worth Divorces in San Diego
In high net worth divorces, there are many factors that need to be considered. With regard to division of property and asset protection, a determination must be made as to which property was owned individually prior to the marriage and which property was accumulated jointly during the marriage. Only the property that was accumulated jointly may be considered for division. We call this marital property.
Once the marital property has been identified, a fair value must be assigned to each asset and an equitable distribution of the property must be made. There are other factors that come into play here, such as commingling. If you spent money you inherited or that was given to you as a gift on things like home remodeling or your spouse's college degree, there should be special consideration for these expenditures in the divorce settlement.
My experience in high net worth divorces gives me the ability to build an effective strategy for obtaining a fair settlement on your behalf. I work with a broad network of experts in property valuation, accounting and other key areas to help ensure a fair settlement. I am a skilled negotiator and will work to reach a settlement without going to court, but will not hesitate to litigate if we cannot reach an agreement otherwise.
