Protection Without Destruction

High Asset Divorce

Divorce is never easy. When dissolving a marriage means dividing significant assets, a layer of complexity is added to an already challenging process. Emotions are high, and there may be confusion about the valuation of certain assets such as a professional practice or family business. Unnecessary conflict can drive up not only the financial cost, but the emotional cost of a high net worth divorce. At Harris, Hunt & Derr, P.A., our experienced family law attorneys will help you divide your property in a way that preserves both your financial health and your peace of mind.

Divorce Issues Affecting Florida Couples With Significant Assets

The same wealth that offered you a high standard of living during your marriage can become a bone of contention in your divorce. Harris, Hunt & Derr maintains relationships with respected Florida financial professionals such as divorce financial analysts, tax professionals, and forensic accountants. We incorporate support from these professionals as needed in developing your case and addressing issues such as:

  • Valuation of assets whose value fluctuates over time
  • Valuation of closely-held businesses and family businesses and other complex assets
  • Classification of certain property as marital or non-marital for purposes of division
  • Classification of various assets as income or property, such as stock options and other investments
  • Valuation of commercial and residential real estate and investment properties
  • Valuation of art and collectibles
  • Child support that deviates above Florida guidelines
  • Temporary, transitional, rehabilitative, durational, or permanent spousal maintenance

We also represent clients in the preparation, review, and enforcement of prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
