High Net Worth Divorce
While the law in Pennsylvania regarding divorce, support and the distribution of assets is the same regardless of the net worth of the parties, high net worth individuals typically face more complexities in properly valuing and equitably dividing their marital estate. At Colgan & Associates, LLC, our family law team works with our high net worth clients to properly evaluate and assess the impact of:
- Marital versus non-marital assets
- Investment real estate
- Vacation homes
- Family businesses
- Closely held businesses
- Stock option compensation and other forms of non-wage compensation
- Complex retirement plans
- Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs)
We also work with our family law clients in matters of financial misconduct surrounding divorce. Preserving the assets you’ve accumulated during your marriage (known as your “marital estate”) while your case is proceeding to conclusion is vital. We take all appropriate steps to preserve your marital estate. In Pennsylvania the courts have broad power to freeze assets and prevent the wasting away or devaluation of your property.
When appropriate we work with forensic accounts, business valuators, private investigators and other professionals to find hidden assets.
