High Net-Worth Divorce
Handling financial matters whilst also dealing with the end of a relationship can be an emotional and overwhelming time. Where the divorce has a high net worth, there are added complications, and the process is even more challenging. Our professional and expert divorce lawyers have a wealth of experience in high net worth divorces and can guide and represent you to make sure that we get the best possible outcome for your case.
Assets in a high net worth divorce
Assets in these relationships are often held in complicated structures, for example, trusts, that present various legal difficulties. Valuing these assets and businesses can be a complicated process, especially where there are cross-border elements. A high net worth divorce is more likely to include disputes over whether an asset is regarded as marital or non-marital, which raises its own issues.
Various elements need to be considered when the parties involved have a high level of wealth. These include forum disputes where the parties have connections with several countries and so have a choice of venue for the divorce. Our expert legal team will make sure we protect our client's interests by making sure any arrangements correctly protect their finances and assets. We can also assist with any family issues such as contact, custody arrangements and financial support for any children involved.
How will the courts determine an outcome?
In divorce cases, the court will generally attempt to achieve a fair result based on the needs of the parties and also equality. These will be very different in high net worth divorces, especially in cases where the parties have enjoyed a high standard of living and one of the parties has made a substantial financial contribution to the marriage. Our divorce lawyers can guide and advise you on all these issues to ensure a favourable outcome.
Every divorce is unique; therefore, we tailor our advice for each client depending on their personal circumstances.
High net worth individuals increasingly have assets or links with other countries. We have offices based in the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany and Tunisia, meaning that we are well placed to deal with any cross-border elements to these divorces.
