Skilled Negotiators And Litigators In Connecticut Divorces
Our attorneys are detail-oriented, and we know how to navigate even the most complex divorce cases.
Common issues that arise in divorces include:
- Child custody and support
- Spousal support
- Pre- and postnuptial agreements
- Equitable division of assets and debts
- Business valuations
- Forensic accounting
Some divorces can be more time-consuming than others. High net worth divorces, for example, can pose unique challenges that require a lawyer who can invest time in your case.
Special Considerations In High Net Worth Divorces
If you and your spouse have a significant amount of assets, it can be a good idea to hire an attorney who is experienced in high-asset divorces. Our attorneys have decades of experience, and we know what needs to be done in all types of divorces.
One of the greatest differences in high net worth divorces is the use of forensic accounting. It is not unheard of for spouses to try and hide their assets through cryptocurrency, offshore and undisclosed accounts, phantom debts and tax payments, real estate and even stocks. Our team works with forensic accountants to pinpoint any discrepancies in your spouse’s sworn financial statement that may indicate they are trying to sabotage the settlement.
Another key difference relates to child support. Parents may earn an income that exceeds the child support guidelines. Therefore, child support determinations will be made outside of the recommended guidelines.
