Alimony In High-Asset Divorce Cases
Alimony can become very contentious in a high net worth divorce. The court considers the marital lifestyle as well as the income and earning capabilities of each party when determining the amount to be paid. These considerations are open to interpretation, making it very important that you work with an experienced family law attorney throughout the process.
At Hanan M Isaacs, our attorneys provide skilled representation for those facing an alimony determination. We will push hard for a fair result that supports your needs and interests.
Modifications To Child Support Or Spousal Support
Alimony and child support set the stage for each spouse’s financial future. However, if one party’s financial circumstances improve in the future, the other party may be able to modify the alimony orders. Similarly, child support may be modified if one parent starts making more or less money. In the case Isaacson v. Isaacson, Hanan Isaacs successfully appealed a trial decision that had denied an increase in child support post-judgment.
There are many reasons one might wish modify a child support or spousal support arrangement. Perhaps you have lost your job and are no longer able to pay the specified amount. Perhaps your ex was recently promoted, thus changing the amount of money that should be distributed. Or, perhaps your child has developed an unexpected medical need. Whatever the reason, a modification can have a substantial impact on the finances of high-asset individuals.
Whether you are seeking assistance with a modification or attempting to contest a modification proposed by your former spouse, our attorneys are here to protect your interests.
In a high net worth divorce, the marital estate may include assets such as:
- Real estate
- High-end vehicles and furnishings
- Jewelry, art and antiques
- Businesses and professional practices
- Stock options and portfolios
- Pensions and benefit plans
- Retirement plans, IRAs and 401(k)s
Marital property is divided according to equitable distribution, which means that the court tries to distribute property in a manner that it considers fair. If you have sophisticated assets, you need a lawyer who can argue for your property rights.
When you contact Hanan M Isaacs, one of our skilled attorneys will sit down with you to discuss your financial situation and determine which assets you would like to retain. Then, we will work with you to develop a legal solution that best fulfills your needs and desires.
