Experienced Representation in High Asset Divorces

On Behalf of | May 25, 2020 | Divorce

Are you searching for an attorney with experienced representation in high asset divorces?  If you are considering or about to enter into a divorce in North County or Carlsbad and have substantial assets including business ownership, substantial investments and holdings, trust accounts, vacation or residential real estate or are a high wage earner it is important to have the best representation possible.

The divorce attorneys at Burke & Domercq have decades of experience and expertise in high asset cases here in Carlsbad and across North County. The first issue is going to be establishing a legally clear date of separation. From this important date forward you are able to account for income and earnings in your own name and to keep that money separate from the community assets to be divided.

How will the assets be divided? Did you receive gifts or an inheritance during the course of your marriage? Hopefully these funds were kept entirely separate from the marital assets and accounts. If so, they should remain separate property under California family law.

However, if these assets were commingled in any way, a complex calculation and negotiation will be required to determine the amount of those funds which have become community property versus those that remain separate assets.

The attorneys at Burke & Domercq assemble a team to support every aspect of your high asset divorce. Tax planning is an essential ingredient in any high asset divorce case. When a business or professional practice is at stake a business valuation expert must help to establish a fair valuation for your ownership interest in the business.

You have several important decisions ahead of you, including how you want the relationship to continue after the divorce is completed. If you are going to co-parent children after the divorce the patterns established during the negotiations and, when required, mediation throughout the divorce process will have a substantial impact on the quality of your relations ability to work with your former spouse after the divorce.

The Certified Family Law Specialists at Burke & Domercq provide experienced representation in high asset divorces.  We understand the nuances of these legally and financially complex divorce situations. There is a lot of money at stake, and the quality of your representation will have a direct impact not only on the amount of money you are able to keep but the structure of your life after the divorce is completed.
