Glen Burnie High-Asset Divorce Attorney
Experience Matters When it Comes to Your Case.
Ward & Co Law excels at providing divorce representation in high-asset cases throughout Maryland. We know that this can be an incredibly stressful process for those involved; however, we want to assure you that with our knowledge and years of experience, we can protect your rights every step of the way.
For couples of all financial standings, the fundamental issues of a divorce are the same:
However, we realize that addressing these topics for couples with a high net worth becomes much more nuanced. In order to parse through these more complicated assets, assigning value and determining fair division, having an experienced divorce lawyer is of paramount importance.
Determining the fair and proper division of finances can be a delicate matter, especially when spousal or child support is involved. Our skill is in providing mediation or litigation to ensure that the process is handled appropriately and justly.
In the state of Maryland, marital assets are not divided equally, but equitably. This means that instead of defaulting to an even split, the assets are divvied based on fairness. Because there is a reasonable amount of subjectivity in what is deemed fair, it is essential that you are represented by a lawyer who is able to sufficiently define and protect your assets.
These may include:
- Businesses & professional practices
- Retirement plans
- High-end furnishings & vehicles
- Vacation homes & investment property
When we feel it would be helpful or necessary, we work with appraisers who help value assets and/or forensic accountants who ensure that there are no hidden assets of which we are unaware. Our family law firm understands the complexity of these cases; whether it is addressing tax issues inherent in these divisions or filling out a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) to prevent penalization for early disbursement of retirement funds, we make sure the necessary items and steps are taken care of.
