High Net Worth Divorce Lawyer

What is considered high net worth in a divorce?

Since there is really no legal definition for ‘high net-worth’, we’ll consider it to mean a couple whose invested assets exceed a particular amount, generally exceeding $1 million.  Because the assets are more substantial in this type of divorce, they can easily become more complex and can often be tricky as well.

It is therefore important to be represented by an attorney who has experience with high net worth divorce to ensure that they have the knowledge needed to address issues that don’t come up in an average divorce.

Typical Assets in a High Net Worth Divorce

  • Business holdings;
  • Real estate valued in excess of $1 million;
  • Investment portfolios;
  • Exotic vehicles;
  • Vacation properties;
  • Artwork & Collections;
  • Stock Options & Restricted Stock Units;
  • Private Equity & Hedge Funds.

You also have to consider that this type of divorce can drastically affect the terms of child support, spousal support and more. If you or your spouse has over $1 million in assets, then your divorce is considered a high net worth divorce.
