The Challenge Of A Complex Divorce Case

When you and your spouse have significant assets to your name and those assets are in dispute, you've entered the realm of the complex, or "high-asset," divorce.

These cases can be particularly challenging. Nothing can be divided until its fair value is determined and the question of whether or not it is part of the marital estate has been settled. What is or is not marital property can be a complex question that looks at when was the property or asset acquired and how it was treated.

We can help you fight for the property and assets that are important to you.

Protect What Is Rightfully Yours

If you're a small-business owner, you may struggle to prove that your valuation of the business is accurate when it comes time for the court to decide what is fair. If your business is underperforming for some reason, your spouse may unfairly claim that you're trying to cheat on the division of assets. At Roach, Caudill & Gunn LLP, we can help you present a fair valuation of your business that will stand up to scrutiny in court.

We can also help you negotiate the division of stocks, bonds, and pension plans in a way that won't strip them of value in the process.

Get What You Are Rightfully Due

On the other hand, if you're the disadvantaged spouse of someone who has tried to keep, hide, or devalue significant assets to avoid losing them in the divorce, we can help establish the value of marital property and assert your right to a fair share.

Protecting Your Privacy

One of the roles of a high-asset divorce attorney is knowing how to protect something that may be worth more than money: your privacy and reputation. We know what steps to take to protect your privacy and reputation during your divorce.

In many cases, the attorneys involved in a high-asset divorce take the lead and negotiate a settlement that both parties can tolerate to keep a case out of litigation. Otherwise, any facts that could affect the division of assets may end up as part of public record — which can damage a party's social or professional standing in the community.

While judges have a lot of leeway in these cases, our combined years of experience will benefit you. We will help you determine how a judge is likely to rule and plan a strategy to preserve what you value the most. We aim to keep our clients out of court whenever possible but are willing and able to forcefully defend your interests if litigation becomes necessary.
