Los Angeles High-Net Worth Divorce Lawyers

In cases with a high-net worth divorce, you have even trickier legal matters that you will have to navigate. For some cases, one spouse may have signed a pre-nuptial agreement, but these agreements don’t protect people 100 percent of the time. It depends on the state and the circumstances on whether it will protect the person.

What Adds to the Complexity?

One of the most difficult things about a high-net worth divorce comes from how these individuals will sometimes jointly own stocks, businesses, real estate and other types of assets. That can make the division of the assets more difficult. The more assets a person has, the more difficult it can be to divide them. In some cases, one person might have alternative forms of income. For example, they might have trust funds, executive compensation packages or oil and gas royalties that the divorce courts have to look at.

Don’t Wait: Plan!

No one gets married with the intentions of getting divorced, but you have cases where the two can’t get along. They fight all the time and struggle to make things work. Eventually, they can’t manage to stay together and divorce because of the conflicts. Divorce can change a person’s life in ways that they had never planned for, which is why if they prepare for it as a possibility, it can save them a lot of heartache. That’s not to say that it will happen, but like an insurance plan, people don’t plan for house fires. That said, insurance is nice to have when a fire breaks out because it offers peace of mind.

Never Hide Your Assets

As divorce lawyers, we must implore you to never hide your assets in a divorce case. It doesn’t go well. In some cases, people have even been criminally prosecuted for hiding assets, and in cases with a high-net worth, that is likely to happen. You want to remain upfront. We see it day in and day out where divorces can get emotionally and mentally messy. You need to remain upfront because at worst, you can wind up spending time in jail. At best, the divorce courts will look down on this action, and they will rule in favor of the other person. That is why you have to keep everything upfront. Don’t get emotional. Don’t hide anything.

Cases That Last Longer

Because of the higher net worth and greater assets, it typically takes longer for the divorce to go through. It can take six weeks on the lower end for regular divorces, but with high-net worth divorces, it can take up to 12 months. Not only that, but these cases will usually cost more than with a regular case. You have to remain prepared on all fronts and take active measures to protect yourself.

Follow Court Orders

You can greatly harm your divorce case if you don’t follow court orders. Courts often view this as obstructive and malicious behavior. To follow court orders, it means that you have to pay for spousal support and follow the other terms within the injunction orders. You can mortally wound your case and put the ball in the other person’s court if you don’t follow through with all the court orders.

Special Considerations

With a high-net worth divorce, it will often involve special considerations for the distribution of wealth. The ultimate goal in a divorce is to arrive at a fair conclusion, but this doesn’t always happen as many divorcees will attest. In cases where families were enjoying a high standard of living, they will take this into account when computing the divorce case. Usually, this means that they will be more generous to be fair.

In cases with high-net worth divorce cases, the other problem comes from how people like this will often live international lifestyles. This can add to the difficulties, and you need to have a good lawyer on hand to help with cases like this. If you or your spouse has connections with multiple jurisdiction, you need to leap into action immediately. Which jurisdiction they decide on can have a big impact on the overall case because the laws can differ from one jurisdiction to the next. Don’t wait! Call LA divorce lawyers today.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
