Fort Lauderdale High-Asset Divorce Lawyer
Dividing property in a divorce can be difficult. When a couple has high-value assets, significant income, stock options, major investments, or owns a business, the process can become even more complicated. In these situations, it is important to work with an experienced attorney who can guide you through the process, protect your financial issues, and provide you with the advice you need to make sound decisions for your future.
At the Law Office of Curtis R. Cowan, P.A., I have more than 20 years of experience as a Fort Lauderdale high-asset divorce attorney. I am a Board Certified marital and family law attorney and certified mediator. At every stage of your divorce, I can provide you with the trusted advice and skilled representation you need. E-mail or call my office at (954) 953-2575 to discuss your divorce.
Identifying and Valuing Complex Assets in Your Divorce
Before your assets and debts can be equitably divided in your divorce, your marital property must be identified and valued. Identifying assets and debts can be difficult if one spouse runs a family business, has deferred compensation, stock options or is an independent contractor. Additionally, a spouse may be trying to hide assets during the divorce through family, friends, and other means. I will work diligently to root out hidden income, assets, and investments in your divorce so you can secure a fair division of property.
Next, a careful valuation of marital assets and liabilities is essential. I partner with accountants, business valuation experts, who can offer a 409a valuation, appraisers, and other valuation professionals in order to gain a complete understanding of the full present and future value of my client’s marital property. As a family law and divorce lawyer, I help clients through the process of valuing assets such as:
- Retirement assets such as 401(k) and pensions
- Antiques, collectibles, designer furnishings and art
- Investment property, including rental property and vacation homes
- Stocks, bonds and debentures
- Business ownership interests in a family business, LLC or closely held corporation
- Deferred employee compensation and stock options
Through a complete understanding of all marital assets and debts, I can help you secure an equitable division in your divorce.
