The importance of legal advice in a high-net worth divorce

The end of a marriage is usually emotionally challenging for spouses. When significant financial assets are involved, divorce can become even more emotional and sometimes downright hostile. Whenever a couple has substantial value in the form of real estate, retirement accounts, business investments, stocks and other assets, the potential for a drawn-out battle is high.

Over the years, our law firm, Turken and Porzenski, LLC, has handled many high-asset divorces in St. Charles County. We have helped many spouses construct divorce agreements based on their unique circumstances. In cases involving complex asset division, we begin by identifying all of the property and assets a couple has that are eligible for division.

Once all assets have been identified, they are subject to valuation by independent appraisers who can determine each asset's true value. After that, spouses can proceed to divide their assets. We find that it is important that both spouses have a clear picture of what they are dealing with. This way they better understand their situation and can craft a better divorce agreement based on both their needs and wants.

Our essential role in divorce is to provide sound legal advice to our clients. Spouses can use our services to find out the best course of action given their own circumstances or consult with us for advice on decisions they have already made. Our legal guidance can help protect the rights and interests, financial and otherwise, of divorcing individuals.
