Going through a divorce is never easy. For high asset couples, getting a divorce is even more challenging. There are many unique considerations that must be addressed. Not only is there often much more at stake, but high net worth couples typically own especially complex assets. This can create a situation where the risk of confusion and conflict are both much higher.

Identifying and Valuing Your Assets
Florida is an equitable distribution state (Fla. Stat. § 61.075). When a married couple separates, their marital assets will be divided in a ‘fair’ manner. It should be noted, however, that equitable distribution is not always a 50-50 split. A number of different factors must be considered. For high net worth couples, it is imperative that all assets are identified and valued. At Greater Orlando Family Law, our Florida divorce lawyers fight to protect the financial interests of our clients. We can help you get your full and fair share of the marital assets. Among other things, our law firm will identify and value all assets, including:
- Investment accounts;
- Retirement accounts;
- Retirement/insurance benefits;
- Real estate holdings;
- Other real property;
- Business interests;
- Family heirlooms and antiques;
- Inheritance; and
- Debts and other financial liabilities.
High net worth couples also need to be sure that their assets are preserved. Dividing certain complex assets — such as retirement holdings or business interests — must be done in a careful, deliberate manner. This is crucial to ensure that a couple is not subject to avoidable taxes and fees and that the underlying value of a business is not damaged.
Considering Alimony/Spousal Support
In Florida, alimony (spousal support or spousal maintenance) may be awarded to a financially disadvantaged partner. Though alimony is not awarded in all divorce cases, it is much more likely to be an issue in a high asset divorce. If there is a significant salary gap or significant gap in the future earning potential between yourself and your partner, you should speak to an experienced Orlando divorce lawyer about how alimony could affect your case.
