What is a High Profile Divorce?
A high profile divorce is a divorce case involving individuals who are well-known or public figures.
Challenges of High Profile Divorce Cases
- Media attention and public scrutiny
- Difficulty maintaining privacy and confidentiality
- Complex financial arrangements, including multiple properties, business interests, and investments
- Disagreements over the value and division of assets
- Spousal support issues when one party earns significantly more than the other
- Child custody arrangements when one or both parents have demanding careers that involve extensive travel or irregular schedules.
- These challenges can create significant stress and pressure for the parties involved. That’s why the experienced divorce attorneys at Willick Law Group are here to help clients address these challenges and protect their privacy and interests throughout the entire divorce process.
High Asset Divorces
A high asset divorce is one where the couple has a significant amount of assets, typically over $1 million, and intricate financial arrangements.
Challenges of High Asset Divorce Cases
- Property Division: Accurately valuing and dividing assets in a high asset divorce can be complex and contentious, particularly if there are unusual kinds of business interests and assets involved.
- Spousal Support: Determining the appropriate amount of spousal support can be complicated and may require expert analysis of the couple’s finances, especially since the earning potential of one or both spouses is often high, but sometimes highly variable.
- Business Valuation: If one or both spouses own a business, its value must be accurately assessed to determine its worth in the divorce settlement. This frequently involves experts to examine financial records, determine cash flow, and assess the value of the assets.
- Tax Implications: The tax implications of dividing assets, including any capital gains or losses, can be significant in high asset divorce cases, and involving tax professionals is sometimes required.
At Willick Law Group, we can help ensure that each asset is accurately valued, that property is divided fairly, and that the divorce settlement takes into account all relevant factors.
Stock Option Divorce
A stock option divorce is a divorce case where one or both spouses have stock options, which are a form of compensation that give the holder the right to buy or sell a stock at a certain price within a certain time frame.
Challenges of Stock Option Divorce Cases
- Valuation: The value of a stock option depends on various factors, including the current stock price, the strike price, and the expiration date. Additionally, some stock options may not be vested, meaning that they cannot be exercised until a certain date or under certain conditions.
- Tax Implications: Depending on how the stock options are divided, either or both parties may be liable for taxes on the gains or losses associated with the options.
- Vesting Schedules: If stock options are not yet vested, they may be subject to a vesting schedule. This means that the options cannot be exercised until a certain date or under certain conditions, providing arguments about community and separate property character..
- Double Dipping: “Double dipping” may be argued to occur when a spouse receives both a portion of the value of the stock options and a portion of the income generated by the options; it is just one of the area in which a “double dip” argument can be made or refuted.
Our experienced attorneys can help ensure that stock options and other kinds of complex assets are accurately valued, that tax implications are considered, and that any other relevant factors are taken into account when characterizing, offsetting, valuing, or dividing the assets.
High profile divorces often involve public figures, celebrities, or individuals with significant wealth or social status, and as a result, there is often significant media attention and public scrutiny. Discretion is important because it helps protect the privacy and reputation of the parties involved, particularly if there are sensitive issues or accusations involved in the divorce, such as alleged infidelity or financial improprieties.
At Willick Law Group, we understand the importance of discretion in high profile divorce cases. Some of the steps we take to ensure our clients’ privacy and confidentiality include:
- Confidentiality Agreements: These agreements outline the parties’ obligations to maintain the confidentiality of any information exchanged during the divorce process.
- Limited Public Disclosure: We work with our clients to determine what information should be made public and what information should remain private.
- Sealed Files and Closed Hearings: We know all statutory and court rule based means of keeping confidential matters private.
- Avoiding Public Court Proceedings: We work to avoid public court proceedings regarding sensitive matters whenever possible. We can sometimes use alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation or arbitration, to resolve divorce-related issues without going to court at all.
- Digital Security: We take steps to secure our clients’ digital communications to prevent hacking or unauthorized access to confidential information.
- Staff Training: We ensure that our team members understand the importance of maintaining our clients’ privacy and are aware of the steps we take to protect it.
