HIGH NET WORTH DIVORCE

DIVORCING HIGH NET WORTH COUPLES 
FACE ADDITIONAL CHALLENGES

As a member of The National Association Of Divorce Professionals we understand dividing property can be challenging during any divorce. However, these issues become even more complex in high net worth divorces involving substantial joint or individual assets. Spouses with significant resources often need to consult various attorneys, financial advisors, a luxury real estate expert, asset and business appraisers, even forensic accounting experts to fully inventory and equitably split their holdings. 

The stakes are high when divorcing with substantial shared wealth, so It is crucial to retain experts experienced with the unique legal and financial complexities of high net worth divorce. Such legal counsel and other experts can adeptly represent your interests in property division and all associated proceedings. You may need to consider mental health experts for the entire family as well

​We have a cadre of experts including lenders, certified public and forensic accountants, financial planners, counselors, investigators, and others to fully assess the value of the marital estate. We find that in most high net worth divorces there are several residences, investment properties and commercial properties that must be evaluated, not only in Texas but throughout the U.S. and often international. Besides properties, businesses, and other assets the inventory and valuation of these very specific holdings requires a trained and professional team to do properly and accurately.

 

This is where we roll up our sleeves and get to work for you! We work closely with legal counsel for both parties to distinguish between assets purchased with premarital money or before the marriage vs during the marriage. 

HOW TO OBTAIN AN ACCURATE
VALUATION OF THE MARITAL ESTATE

 


Most high net worth divorces are between couples who have not only high income but also substantial assets in a variety of holdings that may include.The assets of the marital estate must be completely identified and those that are clearly premarital can be set aside and those that are marital, in full or in part, will be the focus for the attorneys and accountants. After the property is classified to determine what assets will be subject to division, it is next necessary to perform a detailed valuation of the estate.

FIVE STAR REVIEW

“The Realtor I had initially hired said she had sold Luxury Homes. However, it was clear after nine months she misrepresented herself because she made so many mistakes. I was determined to do things differently this time around and do my own research and background on each Realtor I interviewed. I asked my son to help me look for successful Realtors in the area. He saw the things Geni was doing and suggested I talk to her. After interviewing several Realtors, I knew the best agent for me was Geni Manning. Her years of experience, reviews and credentials all checked out. Her marketing was also very important to me and her book she wrote was very impressive, full of the things I was looking for in a Realtor.


Geni obviously came through for me, but it wasn’t without a struggle! At times I wondered if it would close due to everyone seemingly trying to disrupt the sale, but somehow Geni managed to hold it together. She was wonderful, and the very best part was she sold my million dollar home in 2 days at full price! I would highly recommend her to others."
