Monmouth County Divorce Lawyers

High Asset Divorce

Divorce is often an emotionally challenging and stressful time for anyone, regardless of income or social status. But when a divorce involves large or complex assets, the process becomes considerably more involved. Monmouth County divorce lawyers at Fox & Melofchik have successfully handled many complex and high asset divorce cases. Our clients trust us to look after their interests and protect their assets for future generations. We understand that the decisions made during a divorce will shape our clients’ lives for years to come. Those decisions become even more complicated and significant when the divorce involves various large assets such as:

  • Family business, professional licenses and intellectual property
  • High value collectibles, jewelry, artwork, cars and antiques
  • Inheritances
  • International accounts or holdings
  • Lottery winnings
  • Multiple real estate properties
  • Pensions, retirement accounts and other forms of deferred compensation
  • Stocks and other investments

Under New Jersey law, marital assets are divided in a manner that is equitable, but not necessarily equal. A fair allocation of the marital estate is dependent on two key factors: proper identification of which assets are individually held and which are held jointly; and an accurate valuation of those assets. There may also be suspected hidden assets that need to be uncovered and evaluated. Our Eatontown divorce lawyers work closely with a variety of well-respected and highly qualified financial experts including forensic accountants, business valuation experts, independent investigators and professional appraisers. With their assistance, we can determine the true value of the marital estate. Only then can we can begin building a strong case in favor of our clients.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

High asset divorce cases have the potential to become bitterly contested. In addition to the normal stress of divorce, individuals of high net worth are often troubled by the idea of relinquishing all control and allowing the courts to make decisions that can change the course of their family’s future. High profile individuals and business owners may also have legitimate privacy concerns or worry about the impact that a high conflict divorce could have on their professional reputation.

Our firm understands these concerns. We take pride in finding creative and effective solutions that meet the unique needs of our clients. In some cases, this means finding alternatives to traditional divorce litigation. Our Monmouth County divorce lawyers regularly use mediation, collaborative divorce and arbitration to help clients resolve their divorce issues in a way that protects the privacy and the dignity of all involved.
