Fighting For A Financially Stable Future

Any divorce can be a complicated matter. Many marriage dissolutions involve the division of many different types of assets, including real property, stock options and investments. When the value of these assets is extremely high, both parties may be more aggressive in pursuing what they believe they deserve, resulting in a very complex and contested divorce.

With over 20 years of family law experience, we at the Law Office of Christina D. Hills, PLC, in Monroe, Michigan, can provide you with the information and advice you need to fully understand your complex divorce matter. Contact us today to discuss your case and options with a skilled divorce attorney at our firm.

Taking On The Complexities Of Property Division

Even in high-asset divorces, property is divided according to the law of equitable distribution. This means that while property is divided equally and fairly by the judge, it may not be distributed 50-50 between the parties. We can help high-asset divorce clients understand how the below types of property and assets may be divided in their specific situation:

  • Real property
  • Vacation properties
  • Cars
  • Homes
  • Personal property
  • Stock options
  • Retirement benefits
  • 401(k)s
  • Investments and IRAs
  • Employee benefits

We can also help clients uncover any hidden assets that a spouse may be holding in an offshore account or another account.

The Need For An Experienced Attorney For Business Valuation

When a couple is invested in or owns a family or closely held business, it is essential that these businesses be thoroughly assessed. Determining the overall value of the business is an important step in determining how it is to be divided in the divorce. Obtaining a comprehensive business valuation can be a large and long process, involving forensic accountants, business valuation experts and other professionals who can help. We work closely with clients throughout the course of obtaining a business valuation to ensure it is properly completed and the outcome is thoroughly explained to our clients. It is possible to contest the business valuation and the splitting of the business, if a party chooses this avenue.
