Helping Clients with Complex and High-Asset Divorce
Divorce can be extremely complex when couples have significant high assets and debts such as multiple homes, stock investments, pension plans, professional practices, and valuable personal items. While tensions between divorcing spouses are always present, those cases with high-net worth are even more intense, as dividing marital assets is a demanding undertaking. For those with substantial economic interests, it is crucial to develop appropriate legal strategies to protect your future.

Uncovering Hidden or Disguised Assets
A couple must have their assets and debts accurately evaluated during the divorce process to ensure a fair property division. In many high-asset divorce cases, the wage gap between spouses is significant. It is not uncommon for the high earner to attempt to hide assets or, if they own a business, to disguise personal income or net worth. Hidden assets may also include unknown stocks, bonds, offshore accounts, and real estate holdings. At The Davies Law Firm, LLC, we have established a strong working relationship with respected forensic accountants, business valuation specialists, and other financial professionals who can:
- Accurately value your marital estate
- Determine the tax implications of a potential property distribution agreement
- Ensure that all income, assets, and debts have been appropriately discovered and reported
- Testify, if necessary, on your behalf in family court

Seeking Solutions through Collaborative Law
At The Davies Law Firm, LLC, we believe that divorces do not always have to be contentious. It is in the best interest of divorcing couples to choose to work out their differences in mediation. Attorney Kathleen Davies is trained in collaborative law and has worked with many couples who have resolved their disputes at the negotiating table.
There are many benefits associated with a collaborative approach, as a judge is not deciding a divorcing couple’s future. Studies have shown that when couples voluntarily agree to the terms of a divorce, they are more likely to comply. Additionally, mediation gives both parties privacy during this challenging time in their lives. Frequently, high-profile cases choose mediation to avoid a public courtroom or hearing. Mediation avoids lengthy and costly litigation and helps couples build a foundation for future communication.
