Somerset County Business Valuation Attorneys

Division of the significant assets and liabilities of a marriage is often the major concern of our law firm’s high net worth clients. New Jersey law requires an equitable distribution of assets and liabilities that were legally and beneficially acquired during the marriage, which means that the property of your marriage must be divided fairly, not necessarily equally. Additionally, in certain cases, the growth of a premarital asset may be subject to division

Our divorce attorneys have significant experience assisting business owners, trust beneficiaries, professionals such as physicians and lawyers, and others with high net worth, to protect their interests with a fair and equitable property division.

If necessary, our law firm will collaborate with accountants, business valuation experts, appraisers, and other financial experts to ensure that all marital assets are accounted for and properly distributed. Our mission is to help you achieve a complete resolution for your current legal issues now and, where possible, in the future.

Beyond Property Division

The complex nature of a high-asset divorce extends beyond distributing assets and liabilities. If you or your spouse has a high net worth, nearly every aspect of your divorce can be affected.

  • Alimony and spousal support: Courts have significant latitude to order alimony or spousal support. This is an issue of significant importance to spouses accustomed to a high standard of living.
  • Child support: After a certain income threshold, New Jersey’s child support guidelines become only a starting point for a child support award. Numerous other factors are considered in determining if there should be an “above guidelines award.”

If you have significant marital assets or a family-owned business, seeking legal counsel early in your divorce can best protect your assets or ensure that you receive your fair share of marital property.
