High-Asset Divorce Attorneys
The process of divorcing can be complex when the couple has a high net-worth, owns a business, or owns significant property.
In a high-asset divorce, there are additional legal and financial considerations that need to be addressed.

At Swerdloff & Swerdloff, we have the experience and stamina to handle the most complex divorce cases.

Dividing Property in Divorce
Often, divorcing spouses are not fully aware of each other's financial circumstances. One spouse may be hiding assets in undisclosed bank accounts. One or both spouses may have assets that they have forgotten about. Any number of scenarios can turn an otherwise straightforward divorce into a highly complex one.
In high-asset divorce cases, we partner with accountants, business valuators, and other professionals who specialize in complex financial matters. This gives us a full understanding of the financial situation of our clients. We then work toward a fair division of property which considers these unique factors.
Tax Considerations of a High-Asset Divorce
There are ways to reduce the tax burden in divorce. Our firm is experienced in working with high net-worth clients and in understanding the particular tax matters which affect them. We are familiar with ways to alleviate tax burdens which may save clients money. We are always focused on protecting the assets you have worked hard to earn.
Alimony is taxable to the person receiving it, and deductible by the person paying it. It is important to keep alimony records to help avoid potential disputes in the future.
