Alimony is typically a major issue in high net worth divorces. There is no guarantee that the court will award one spouse alimony, but there is a chance. It will depend largely on how long you were married and what the gap is between your current and future earning potential. If you were married longer than seven years and one spouse earns significantly less than the other, then there is a chance the judge may award alimony.
Child Support and Custody
When a couple going through a high net worth divorce has children, it can make the divorce even more challenging. Do not let your emotions get the best of you when children are involved. It’s understandable that you might be in a major dispute over assets, but it’s important to work toward the most amicable solution when it comes to your children. If the family court judge has to decide, it will always be what is in the best interests of your children.
Your family law attorney will always make sure your rights are protected, while at the same time, try to help you reach an agreement with your ex.
The Process of Dividing Complex Assets and Property
Florida law calls for equitable distribution when it comes to property settlement agreements in a divorce. This means that your assets and liabilities will be split in a fair and equitable manner. That doesn’t necessarily translate to every asset being split 50/50, but the goal is to make sure that both spouses have their fair share.
Before any assets can be divided, there are a number of issues that must be resolved. These include:
- Identifying all assets that each spouse owns;
- Determining what is separate property and what is joint property that is subject to division;
- Determining a value for complex assets like art and antiques, stocks, businesses, etc.; and
- Figuring out how to create an equitable distribution with the marital property that is to be divided.
At HVW Law Group, we understand how much is at stake and how challenging it can be to value certain assets. Complex assets may require the use of an expert who can help place a value on your assets like investment portfolios, your own businesses, retirement accounts, and more.
