Connecticut Divorce and Property Division Law Firm
In high net-worth divorces or high-asset divorces, couples often find numerous issues to argue over. These arguments can cause the divorce to drag on and waste each party’s time and money, resulting in diminished assets at the time of the equitable distribution of the couple’s marital property. Your divorce does not have to progress this way. We can help.
At the Connecticut law firm of Stanger Stanfield Law, our Hartford high net-worth divorce lawyers work hard to bring your divorce and asset division concerns to an equitable resolution as efficiently and effectively as possible. We will provide you with the extra attention and dedicated representation you need for full asset protection and division.
Times Have Changed — Property Division in Divorce Is Not Easily Resolved
Many married couples today have accumulated great wealth in the form of money, property, closely held businesses and other assets. When these couples divorce in Connecticut, all assets determined to be marital, or shared, will then be equitably distributed between the parties. Two of the largest issues that exist include determining how many assets exist and whether those assets are marital property.
Our family law attorneys will help you identify all assets and create an agreement that meets your needs. In cases involving family businesses or closely held businesses, we take a more long-term approach. Our goal will be to find a way to ensure the business maintains its value and continues to run well while also giving each spouse their fair share.
Issues for Entrepreneurs
Many say Entrepreneurs face a higher rate of rate of divorce than the average couple. Business matters complicate the situation, bringing another layer of considerations to the table. The endless hours, the often laser-like focus, and the dedication are described by the entrepreneur as what is needed and can be described by the spouse as a cause of distancing in the relationship. However, we understand the complex issues facing divorcing couples where one of the partners is an entrepreneur. Bruce himself is an entrepreneur. In fact, he is on the board of the CT chapter of Entrepreneur Organization, and he attends regional and international conferences. Whether you or your spouse is the entrepreneur, let us help you bring your divorce to conclusion with a reasonable result so that everyone can move on.
Ending The Conflict When Cost Is Not a Concern
In high-wealth divorces, there is the ability to continue the fight beyond that which is wise. With substantial resources comes the ability to sustain a war over money, sustain the war over the children, and over issues within the marriage that are not resolved. It is often a challenge to bring that war to a conclusion, especially when cost is not as critical a concern. We can help you formulate your goals/expectations and then adapt the strategy accordingly. It is a fluid process. Just because the power exists, it does not mean it is appropriate to continue the conflict.
