Divorce proceedings involving highly compensated business executives or professionals require the attention of an experienced Los Angeles executive divorce lawyer who understands the unique issues and special concerns central to high income and asset cases.
Very often the outcome of an executive or high net worth divorce will be influenced by the presence of a prenuptial agreement that the spouses signed prior to entering upon the marriage. Many individuals who possess considerable wealth, own businesses, or are otherwise concerned about protecting themselves against the claims of spousal support and property division that this precaution. The Los Angeles divorce attorneys at Boyd Law will help you depending on which side of the issue you are on. We may seek to invalidate the terms of the agreement by demonstrating that it is not legally enforceable or we might have to defend your prenuptial/postnuptial agreement against the claims of your spouse.
A high asset marital property division can get complex when one or both spouses have a complex property portfolio, especially when one is an executive. You need a quality Los Angeles divorce attorney to divide the property. In any divorce the couple will have accumulated property. When the courts look at a high asset divorce usually a lot or real estate, investments and other business interests are involved. Examples of high assets are:
- Pensions that cannot be divided until retirement
- Stock options
