High Net Worth Attorney Serving Bergen County and Northern New Jersey
Divorce is a stressful and complicated process at the best of times. If you are an individual with a high net worth, divorce can present even more complex and high-stakes decisions than the typical divorce. Property division, as well as alimony and child support calculations, require expert, tailored understanding, and for high profile clients, preservation of the privacy of their financial circumstances and personal lives can be an essential concern throughout the proceedings.
It is essential that you retain a skilled and experienced high net worth divorce attorney with the resources necessary to make sure your assets are protected and your rights safeguarded. The Englewood family law attorneys at Herbert & Weiss, LLP are well-versed in the planning, evidence-gathering, negotiation, and, where necessary, litigation tactics required to make sure your rights, interests, and assets are dealt with appropriately throughout the proceedings and in any final divorce settlement or order.
Complex divorce cases and expert analysis
Divorcing couples with significant assets often face complicated issues of asset valuation along with tax, debt, and other lifestyle questions that are essential to a fair and equitable distribution of assets in a divorce. The attorneys at Herbert & Weiss are proficient at evaluating complex property division issues such as business valuation, investment preservation, retirement account valuation, tax and debt issues, real estate and property valuation, analysis of overseas accounts and uncovering hidden assets, child support and alimony, as well as handling cases involving prenuptial agreements.
Moreover, we know how to find, retain, and work with the best experts available to address these issues, including: vocational and lifestyle experts, qualified domestic relations order (QRDO) specialists, actuaries, accountants, and other necessary financial experts. At Herbert & Weiss, we utilize our extensive experience and network to tailor the proceedings and solutions to your individual needs.
Alternative dispute resolution and privacy concerns
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation and arbitration, should be used in any high-asset divorce wherever possible. Beyond the flexibility ADR affords all divorces, ADR proceedings are, by default, private proceedings. In the event that any issues remain contested and the parties cannot reach agreement, the attorneys at Herbert & Weiss are prepared to zealously advocate for your rights and interests in court.
If court proceedings become unavoidable, particularly where high profile clients are involved, any documents filed with the court (which typically become public) need to be reviewed by the client’s agents, managers, business lawyers, publicists, and any other advisors and consultants essential to the client’s professional life. However, nonessential advisors should not be present during sensitive attorney-client discussions as their presence may affect the privileged nature of those discussions.
