High Asset Divorce In Florida
The Miami high-asset lawyers at the law offices of Vari & Associates, LLC, have resolved high net worth, complex support, and other cases involving great wealth or income for many high-income individuals such as:
- National Football League (NFL) professional athletes
- Members of the recording industry, including record producers and professional singers
- Individuals with professional degrees such as doctors and lawyers
- Successful self-employed business persons
- Persons who amassed wealth through savvy saving and investment strategies or corporate-sponsored retirement and savings plans.
We have experience with complex financial issues in Florida divorce, property distribution, spousal support, and alimony matters. This experience with prior high-asset divorcing spouses has shown our Florida high-asset attorneys the importance of being detail-oriented with the volumes of documents usually associated with handling the division of assets for high-net-worth couples.
A Team Approach For Complex Miami Divorces
Our Miami-Dade County high-asset lawyers utilize a team approach to provide our clients with the best possible outcome for their cases. The most important member of the team is the high net worth or high-income client who will set the goals and parameters of our representation. Our high-asset lawyers may also include on our team forensic accountants and other tax professionals, private investigators, vocational experts, pension and retirement plan actuaries, real estate appraisers, computer forensic experts, and any other necessary experts to provide the thorough evaluation of the marital assets and debts that are required in a high-asset Florida divorce case.
In Florida high-asset divorce cases, property distribution, and marital debts are oftentimes the most complicated issue in the divorce matter. As stated above, our Miami high net-worth divorce lawyers have access to a team of experts who are oftentimes necessary to appropriately value the marital estate, determine the tax consequences of a potential marital property distribution schedule, and provide testimony if needed on issues such as business valuations, the value of the marital home in light of South Florida’s current real estate market and future streams of income with various proposed marital asset distribution schemes.
You might ask why our Miami divorce attorneys would consider employing private investigators or computer forensic professionals when Florida is a no-fault divorce state. The answer is that these experts can sometimes assist our attorneys in uncovering hidden assets that the divorcing spouse who we represent suspected may be present but did not have actual proof of their existence.
Another important issue with many Florida high-asset divorcing spouses is the issue of payment of spousal support and alimony as it is sometimes referred to by individuals. Many high-net-worth divorcing clients have an unemployed or underemployed spouse. Since the income and earning capacity of both spouses is taken into consideration in Florida equitable distribution cases as well as in issues involving the payment of alimony, our Miami-Dade County divorce lawyers are also prepared to retain vocational experts to analyze the earning capacity of unemployed or underemployed spouses if the situation calls for such expert vocational analysis.
Have you ever heard the phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” This phrase certainly holds true regarding high-asset or high-income individuals who are contemplating marriage. The drafting of a comprehensive prenuptial agreement can eliminate many of the problems associated with Florida divorces involving high-asset and high-income individuals. Contact our law office to evaluate your prenuptial needs prior to tying the knot!
