High-Asset Divorce Attorney in St. Petersburg & Pinellas County
Divorce is often a difficult and emotionally charged process involving disentangling your relationship with your spouse. This includes separating the financial aspects of your marriage, including property, other assets, and debts. This issue, called “equitable distribution,” can be especially contentious in divorce as both parties’ financial futures will be impacted.
In a high-asset divorce, the situation can become even more divisive because of the high stakes involved. These cases involve couples who may have had lengthy marriages and accumulated significant assets and properties. This can complicate the division of these assets during divorce proceedings.
In Florida, high-asset divorce cases generally require the assistance of experienced and knowledgeable lawyers who can help navigate the complex legal processes and protect their clients’ financial interests.
