Divorce Concerns And Solutions For High Net Worth Families

If you have a substantial net worth, your family will face many additional complexities in the divorce process. Dividing significant assets such as real property, retirement accounts and business interests in North Carolina is a complex process that requires a skilled, attentive and accomplished divorce lawyer. Forensic accounting work may be necessary along with gaining a comprehensive understanding of your entire financial life.

Divorce will not only impact you in the present moment.

We will need to help you make all of these financial, business and personal changes with the greatest possible amount of tax efficiency to preserve your wealth and your future.

At Epperson Law PLLC, we will help you identify marital and separate property. We will help you keep separate property in your hands and ensure you have equal access to all marital property. It can be difficult to differentiate between marital and separate property when separate property, such as an inheritance or gift, was used to acquire an asset, but the value of the asset increased during your marriage, which will make at least a portion of the appreciation value marital property.

What if the value of a business you started before marriage increased while you were married? What percentage of that business's value does your spouse have ownership rights to?

Gain Protection And Secure What Is Yours

North Carolina is an equitable distribution state, which means fair distribution of marital property in the divorce process. Of course, it does not make sense to liquefy all your assets in divorce or to split all business interests in half. We will negotiate and litigate on your behalf to secure a property division agreement that protects your short- and long-term interests with best possible outcomes.

Our attorneys are extensively experienced in high-asset divorce cases. Each brings 24 years of legal experience to your unique case. Divorce for couples with a high-income demands thorough planning and comprehensive representation, and we are well-equipped to exceed your expectations.

Attorneys James Epperson and Steve Ockerman are each former U.S. Military JAG Corps officers and accomplished trial lawyers.
