Managing a Divorce With a Lot of Assets

Managing a Divorce With a Lot of Assets

Managing a divorce with a lot of assets can be extremely complicated and even overwhelming for many.  If you or your spouse are considering a divorce and you have worked to build a substantial portfolio of investments and assets you will need an experienced, proven family law attorney to provide sound counsel and protect your interests.

My name is John Schmidt and after more than 25 years of experience serving the people of Shepherdsville, Mount Washington, Shelbyville, Taylorsville, Radcliff, Elizabethtown, Jeffersontown and Louisville, Kentucky I can tell you the process is going to be complex, and in many cases these issues become quite contentious.  We help to protect our client’s interests and guide them through the complex process of property division, maintenance (spousal support), child custody, visitation and support, business valuation and division, the division of retirement and pensions and other complex issues associated with managing a divorce with a lot of assets. 

There are many important aspects to consider in a divorce case with substantial assets, such as:

  • Establishing a proposal for child custody and visitation
  • What will happen to the family residence and the equity you’ve built in that home
  • Evaluation of rental, business and investment income and associated expenses to ensure proper accounting for spousal and child support income calculations
  • Organization of 3 years of documentation for all bank accounts, investment accounts, credit cards, real estate, taxes, safe deposit boxes and offshore financial interests
  • Valuation of business ownership interests, and the division of any marital interest in those assets
  • Disposition of Retirement vehicles such as a 401(k), Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), and pensions
  • Identification of life insurance benefits, cash value, and other associated insurance issues
  • Division of a second residence, vacation property, vehicles, collections and other high value assets

Advance planning is a primary key when managing a divorce with a lot of assets. What is most important to you?  Our effective strategy and plan will help to reduce the extent and expense of disputes and litigation as well as needless legal posturing by opposing counsel.

What concerns keep you awake at night?  We work to answer your questions and develop the strategies necessary to protect the things that are most important to you. 

We help you to understand every step of the process as well as how to manage all communications,  protect against abuses such as pre-divorce spending or the hiding of money or assets by the other party, or respond to allegations of neglect or abuse in an attempt to influence child custody and visitation and/or support liabilities.
