Complex divorce situations require extra attention
Some divorces are easy to come to terms with, while others are more involved. With a complex divorce situation, there may be many issues that the two parties disagree on, thus requiring the services of an experienced divorce attorney to help navigate through them. Some of these issues might involve alimony payments, child custody, developing an equitable parenting plan, or the fair division of assets.
An attorney such as Bill Peters can assist a client going through a complex divorce, providing diligent negotiations with the other party while still preserving the primary goal of protecting your assets and your rights.
Are you going through a high asset divorce?
Couples that have a high net worth or considerable business assets are generally those that have the most contentious divorces. With so many assets to value and many more decisions on how to divide those assets, the possibility is greater that there will be many things that will be a point of contention. In a high asset divorce situation, it is critical more than ever to have the best possible attorney representing you to protect your interests and make sure that you receive a fair and equitable settlement.
In some instances, an attorney may be called upon to take part in forensic accounting to get an accurate snapshot of assets. They may also take an active role in interpreting a pre- or post-nuptial agreement. Despite having an agreement like this in place, there can still be many questions and situations not covered which could lead to further negotiations as part of the divorce settlement.
An attorney such as Bill Peters may also be called upon to seek out subject matter experts to help determine the fair value of various assets ranging from homes, jewelry, artwork or intellectual or patent rights in a business situation.
