Many of our clients are doctors, lawyers, business owners, real estate agents and other professionals with a large amount of assets. These high asset divorce cases require comprehensive financial planning, as well as effective negotiation skills that keep the divorce out of public attention.

At Grady & Riley, LLP, our attorneys have handled several complex divorces, including one involving 100 million dollars in assets. To prepare for these cases, we assemble teams comprised of family law and tax attorneys that help formulate strategies to protect our clients' interests. Using these strategies, we serve as legal advocates for our clients in negotiations and in court, if necessary.

Asset Valuation, Property Division and Spousal Support

In Connecticut, only property and assets acquired during the marriage are subject to division during a divorce. However, when the assets are in a business in one or more trusts, or in a considerable amount of real estate, the matter becomes highly complex. Methods of executive compensation, including stock options, expense accounts, sophisticated life insurance, tax implications and prenuptial and antinuptial agreements all need to be considered.

At Grady & Riley, LLP, we consult our CPAs and tax attorneys on matters involving asset valuation and property division. We then use this knowledge to facilitate acceptable settlements with the other party or submit necessary evidence at trial.

Spousal support, or alimony, is another concern in high asset divorce cases, especially if one party was the household's only income provider. We use our experience and resources to settle alimony agreements that are fair and reasonable.

If you are thinking about divorce or need an attorney to represent you in pending divorce, and you have a large number of assets, contact the Woodbury and Waterbury law offices of Grady & Riley, LLP. We will discuss your situation and choose the best course of action that fits your unique legal needs.
