Moorestown, New Jersey, Attorney Representing Clients In High-Asset Divorce

Divorce is never easy. For couples with extensive assets, the process of property division can be even more daunting.

I am attorney Stephen R. Piper, and I have experience in working with divorce clients who have significant assets, including:

  • Businesses
  • Multiple homes
  • Investment property
  • Cars, boats and planes
  • Collections, from antiques to vehicles to artwork
  • Stock options
  • Intellectual property (IP)
  • Complex investment portfolios
  • Pensions
  • Retirement accounts
  • Jewelry

When high-asset couples divorce, they need a lawyer who is experienced in identifying and dividing complex assets. I have a legal background in the evaluation of business and property that is invaluable to divorce clients with significant wealth. I know how to analyze the account books of a business. I also work with a network of professionals, including real estate appraisers, business evaluators and other experts to provide exceptional service to clients.

If you believe the other party is attempting to hide portions of the marital estate, I will work with forensic accountants to track down the hidden assets. If the other party squandered marital assets on gambling or supporting a mistress, for example, I will take legal action to compel the return of those moneys to the marital estate.

High-Asset Divorce And Family Issues

It can take a long time to resolve all the issues in a high-asset divorce. Some cases go one for two years or more. If you are a dependent spouse, this can be a difficult period financially unless your attorney takes steps to protect your interests immediately. During the period of litigation, the higher-earning spouse is responsible for maintaining the lifestyle the two parties were accustomed to living prior to their breakup. I will take action to require the other party to live up to that responsibility.

High-Asset Divorce And Adult Children

Many high-asset families continue to support adult children past the age of majority, providing homes, cars, an allowance and tuition expenses. In addition to ably handling issues of alimony, child custody and visitation, and child support for minor children, I will help you negotiate or litigate a plan that addresses ongoing support for adult children.
