High Net Worth Divorce in NYC

NYC Divorce Lawyer - High Net Worth Divorce Cases

Money in divorce court

A high net worth couple facing divorce has complex financial matters to resolve in a divorce, particularly in marriages of long duration, or in marriages with children. The financial issues related to property division can be far from simple, as well as matters of child custody, child support and spousal maintenance. The resolution to these crucial issues can be accomplished through negotiating the terms of the settlement with the opposing attorney, through the collaborative divorce process, or in court.

Litigation may be inevitable, as unreasonable demands leave no alternative. If there are matters in contention and there appears to be no possibility of achieving an agreement through alternative dispute resolution or negotiating a compromise agreeable to both parties, it is imperative that you have the highest quality divorce litigator representing you and protecting your interests.
