Finding And Dividing Property In A High Net Worth Divorce
Regardless of overall net worth, Hawaii follows the partnership principle when addressing property division. The two of you were in a partnership; therefore your marital assets should be divided equally.
Each party is required to declare all of his or her property and assets, whether considered separate or marital, so the attorneys can evaluate each person’s worth. If you believe that your spouse is hiding property or assets from you, Scot Stuart Brower will consult with forensic accountants to ensure that all of your spouse’s net worth has been properly documented. We also work with appraisers, regular accountants, tax advisors and business valuators to determine what your spouse is worth and how much of it counts as marital property.
Scot Stuart Brower will review the financial statements for you and your spouse. He will negotiate with your spouse and his or her lawyer to draw up a settlement you can both agree to. If this is not possible, he will bring your case before a judge and fight for your best interests.
