A Thorough Approach To High-Asset Divorce

At of the Law Office of Michael D. Tracton, P.C., my support staff and I work as a team to assist clients with sophisticated strategies and creative solutions in high net worth divorce. I have more than 35 years of family law experience helping individuals protect their rights in high-stakes divorce matters.
Proficient At Valuing And Dividing Complex Assets
It is important in these cases to be proactive in protecting your assets and/or establishing the fair value of investments, retirement accounts, 401(k)s, real estate holdings, stock options and more, which are used to calculate spousal maintenanceand/or child support obligations.
If a spouse is self-employed or a partner in a business, it may be difficult to determine his or her salary. I review tax returns, bank statements and other key documents to gain an accurate assessment of total net worth.
If necessary, I use highly regarded forensic accountants, business appraisers and other specialists to accurately assess the value of a family-owned business, investment property or other assets. This provides a strong foundation from which to negotiate a settlement or present an argument to the court if a settlement cannot be reached.
If you and your spouse own a business together, I will explain your options, which include continuing to operate the business together, having one spouse buy out the other spouse’s interest, or selling the business and splitting the profit or sharing the debt.
My thorough knowledge of marital agreements allows me to enforce or contest these agreements with accordance to your best interests.
