Dissolution of marriage cases involving high net worth families are subject to the same rules and statutory limitations are cases with fewer assets. However, the complexity of high net worth cases makes it critical that a party have legal counsel and supporting experts with sufficient experience to understand and organize the property and related issues. High net worth families have a tendency to have more sophisticated investments where valuation and risk assessments are more difficult. These cases generally have more tax issues and valuation discount issues. Family business interests and complicated estate planning using trusts can create issues as to whether or not a property right, let alone a marital property right, has been created.
