High Net Worth Divorce

High Net Worth Divorce Attorneys in San Diego

Divorce can be complicated and emotionally taxing, a fact that is especially true for those with high net worth. Finalizing a divorce in these situations requires making impactful decisions about real estate properties, retirement accounts, and business interests. These things—on top of the difficulties of establishing a child custody arrangement and determining who will pay or receive spousal support—can be a lot for one person to bear. 

At Shorb & Connor, we are here to lighten the load during divorce. Since 2011, we have helped numerous clients settle their divorces fairly and amicably, many of which had complex and highly valuable investments, businesses, and other assets. Our team recognizes the challenges of high asset divorces and has the skills and know-how to guide you as you make decisions that will impact yourself and your family long after the divorce is settled.

What Our Attorneys Can Offer in Your High Net Worth Divorce

Partnering with a trusted and experienced attorney like ours at Shorb & Connor should be one of the first things you do if you are considering filing for divorce or have been served divorce papers. 

Our San Diego high asset divorce lawyers can help you in the following ways:

Comprehensive Asset Valuation

High net worth divorces frequently require detailed asset valuations to determine how to fairly apportion assets. As a community property state, California courts uphold a standard of equal distribution. This means the courts will seek to apportion assets 50-50. 

The first step toward achieving equal distribution is assessing the value of businesses, partnerships, investments, real estate holdings, stock portfolios, and more. 

Our team at Shorb & Connor has a network of skilled forensic accountants they partner with when it’s necessary to valuate complex assets. They are also capable of locating hidden assets to see that an estate is valuated properly, allowing our clients to receive exactly what they deserve through property division. 

Fighting for Proper Spousal Support 

You may find yourself in a situation where you must secure fair spousal support payments or avoid far more than what is fair. In either of these circumstances, we are a valuable resource. We can carefully review your and your spouse’s financial information and other relevant factors, then create a strategy for pursuing a proper support agreement. 

Guidance While Creating a Parenting Plan & Determining Child Support

We can draft, review, and advocate for a parenting plan that serves your child’s best interests by giving them the living arrangements, care, and time with you and your co-parent that they deserve. Our team is also experienced in negotiating the terms of child support agreements in and out of court. Often, we can settle these matters in amicable negotiations and mediation. However, we are not afraid to take cases to court. 

Assessing Tax Implications

You can count on us for counsel concerning the tax implications of asset division, paying/receiving spousal support, and other financial considerations. Our aim is to help you minimize tax liabilities and adhere to ever-changing tax laws. 

The Importance of Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are invaluable tools in high net worth divorces. They can provide clear directives for dividing assets, distributing debts, and handling shared business interests in the event of divorce. You can create and enter these marital agreements before and after marriage; there is never a bad time to plan ahead. Contact our firm with questions about prenuptial and postnuptial agreements or to schedule a time to begin drafting one.
