Defending Your Assets
It is critical that any divorce attorney for those with a high net worth recognize and understand the many complexities that come with determining net worth, including all assets and liabilities. At the Zitser Family Law Group, APC, we have experience with all of the common items that may be at issue, including:
- Family businesses and family homes.
- Stocks, bonds, and other investments.
- Retirement funds and 401Ks.
- Debts and liabilities incurred during the marriage.
We also have experience working with those that have automobile collections, investment properties, vacation homes, and more.
Those with a high net worth often have substantial assets and liabilities that need to be taken into account to successfully determine overall net worth, division of assets, and more. We also know how important it is to account for their standard of living, spending allowances, and other issues that often complicate proceedings for less experienced attorneys.
Above all else, we recognize the importance of discretion and will do whatever we can to ensure that all details of the planning and divorce proceedings are kept private.
Maintaining Your Lifestyle
Divorce changes many aspects of life, and an individual’s finances are certainly one of them. However, this does not mean that you have to forfeit the lifestyle you maintained during your marriage. Courts must distribute assets equitably so that neither party can enjoy a better lifestyle at the expense of the other. Our law firm ensures that the court has all of the information it needs to fairly consider all of the financial issues on the table. We will bring in vocational experts, lifestyle experts, and financial professionals if necessary to help us advocate on your behalf.
Discreet Divorces for Celebrities and Those in Entertainment
Divorce is never easy. That being said, divorces for those who work in the entertainment industry are often more so. Not only are there unique challenges – including both tangible and intangible assets, as well as legal complexities that affect only those in the entertainment industry – but there is also the potential for the world at large to be interested in the details of your divorce. The Zitser Family Law Group is committed to maintaining your privacy and confidentiality throughout every step of your divorce. You can put your trust in us to help you keep your personal matters under wraps while protecting your assets and future.
