Experienced Divorce Attorneys Serving Clients Throughout Texas
Couples with a high net worth often have sophisticated financial holdings. If they divorce, they need an attorney who understands complex financial and business issues. Property division is difficult in any divorce; in a high-asset divorce, however, it can be extremely complex.
At the Law Office of Gary L. Nickelson, our Texas high net-worth divorce lawyers represent numerous spouses involved in high-asset divorces. We understand the importance of accurate valuation of your assets and arguing for a settlement that is in your best interest.
Special Considerations of High Net-Worth Divorce
There are several issues to consider in high-asset divorces: property division, alimony and child support. We will review your finances and discuss the different ways to divide your assets. In some cases, it is important to keep the tax consequences in mind as we divide the marital estate, and it may be necessary to hire a tax expert. Sometimes, a mediated settlement or agreement may allow you to keep more of your assets than a trial; litigation is almost always the most expensive solution to a divorce or any legal matter.
When large sums of money are at stake, we work with financial experts to ensure that all assets are disclosed and correctly valued. We hire a forensic accountant if our client does not already have one. Depending on the client, we may also work with business evaluators, vets for livestock, geologists, engineers or other experts if necessary.
We also consult with tax experts to determine which assets are better for you to keep, depending on your tax bracket. In addition, we will consider the tax implications of spousal support and alimony. Contractual alimony is tax deductible for the payor and taxable for the payee.
