Orange County High-End Divorce Lawyers
For wealthy individuals, the divorce process presents some unique challenges. While the basic issues and procedures are the same regardless of your assets and income, high-end divorces tend to be much more complex. This means they also tend to be more time-consuming, and it means that there are more opportunities for contentious disputes to arise as well. As Orange County high-end divorce lawyers, we are intimately familiar with the issues, practicalities and nuances involved.
Which of your assets are on the table in your divorce? Which are you entitled to keep as your “separate” property? If you signed a prenuptial agreement, is it legally-enforceable in California? Since California’s community property law entitles each spouse to half of the couple’s marital estate under most circumstances, these are all critical questions that you need to answer so that you can make informed decisions as you prepare for your divorce.
