Jenkins P.C. - High Net Worth Divorce

We Know How To Handle High-Income And High-Asset Divorces

Divorce is a complicated experience full of transition and change. It can become even more complicated when a couple with extremely valuable assets and high income decides to part ways.

Attorney Erik Jenkins has years of experience dissolving high-income marriages as well as identifying, valuing and dividing assets. We will pursue all of your legal rights and benefits under California law as well as make sure your separate property assets are protected and strive to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible.

Complications Of High-Asset Divorces

Though high net worth divorces can involve many complicated aspects, two of the most common issues are property division and support orders.

Property Division

Property division and negotiation is a complex and contentious area during a divorce. Adding assets worth millions on top of that can make the situation even more complicated. Some of the defining features of high-asset divorces may include:

  • Significant income or savings
  • High net worth investments
  • Valuable real property
  • Vested and unvested stock options
  • Bonuses or retirement pensions
  • Significant business interests
  • Substantial inheritance
  • Professional practices

Any valuable property is subject to the same rules as other assets. Assets, income and debt are either classified as community or separate property, and we must accurately identify, value and divide all assets equitably. It becomes complicated when some assets have both a community and separate property nature and that is where our experience comes into play.

Property division can also become complicated when prenuptial agreements are incorporated into divorces, which we have experience drafting, reviewing, defending and challenging.
