Complex Property Division in Michigan High Net Worth Divorce Cases
As Royal Oak high-asset divorce attorneys, we understand that asset preservation is a primary concern for our clients. Each former spouse wants to have a similar lifestyle post-marriage as existing during marriage. That can cause serious tension. Our goal is to help our clients reach practical solutions in an efficient manner, so assets are not spent on attorney's fees, but instead preserved for division between the parties.
Because high net worth divorces involve significant assets and debts, we often work with experts whose opinions and input are valuable. We consult with forensic accountants, tax specialists, business valuation experts and other professionals to help us reach favorable settlements or win at trial.
We help clients locate, value and divide all assets that may be present in the marital estate, such as:
Pensions, IRAs and 401(k) accounts
Homes, rental properties and vacation properties
Stocks and bonds
Business assets and debts
Professional licenses and professional practices
We also help clients resolve high-income child support and spousal support issues, which can be very complex.
