Divorcing in Holmdel
While all divorces are stressful and difficult, those involving high net worth individuals can create more challenges. Often times the most complex cases are those involving family owned and operated businesses. In these particular cases, a forensic accountant is usually required to prepare a valuation of the family business from an asset standpoint as well as a cash flow report determining how much income is actually generated from someone's interest in the business. High asset cases often require more attention given. The attorneys at Villani and DeLuca have significant experience assisting business owners, trust beneficiaries, physicians and other high net worth individuals to protect their interests.
Divorcing Beyond Your Property In Holmdel
In addition to separating businesses and real property such as primary homes, vacation homes and tangible assets, high net worth divorces also extend into alimony and child support. Judges are given great latitude under the New Jersey statute to award alimony. This becomes extremely challenging in those cases where the parties have grown accustomed to a high standard of living. Also challenging is the issue of child support. New Jersey support guidelines become obsolete after a certain income threshold which is easily surpassed in high net worth cases. The attorneys at Villani and DeLuca have over 60 years combined experience in all aspects of matrimonial law. The attorneys work with highly regarded forensic accountants who create business valuations and cash flow analysis.
