Staten Island High-Asset Divorce Lawyer


The divorce process can have additional complexities when dealing with high-assets, businesses, or a professional practice such as a law, dental, or medical office. If a business is opened during the marriage that too has a value for equitable distribution purposes. When you get married, if a spouse has a practice or business and its value increases during the marriage, that may also be subject to property division. There is a complicated analysis that must be done and there are many factors the court considers in determining the percentage a spouse may receive.

These financial changes can have a dramatic impact on child support, spousal maintenance, and the division of assets and debts, and require assistance from a divorce lawyer who is experienced with complex financial and high-value assets.

Skilled Business Valuation During Your Divorce

We’ve assisted a broad range of individuals with business or practice valuation, including small-business owners, doctors, lawyers, dentists and other professionals. Typically this entails a thorough and painstaking evaluation of financial information, including a review of personal tax returns and corporate tax returns as well as Subchapter S corp.- Schedule C, and LLCs. The analysis is similar to selling a business or practice. In determining support payments it is very important to have an understanding of the spouse’s income. If the business or professional practice was acquired during the marriage, I will also evaluate how much that spouse was worth before and after the degree/business was obtained in order to determine equitable division of marital property.
