Individuals with substantial means face a number of challenges during divorce. The way in which a divorce is eventually resolved will unquestionably impact a person's finances going forward. Connecticut is an equitable distribution state, which means that all marital assets are potentially subject to division, barring a valid prenuptial or antenuptial agreement to the contrary.

Evaluating Assets And Utilizing Experts In High Net Worth Divorce Cases
Perhaps the most important issue in high net worth divorce involves accurately evaluating the worth of various marital assets. Experts in many different fields can play an important role. These experts are frequently used to establish the value of a closely held or family-owned business. In addition these experts can be helpful in determining the present and future value of stock options, employee benefits, pensions and retirement benefits. Our attorneys regularly work with knowledgeable experts to prove the value of specific marital assets.
On the other hand, there are situations where one spouse has reason to believe the other spouse has not fully disclosed his or her income. In these instances, our firm has access to experts such as forensic accountants and investigators who work to identify undisclosed income.
