High Net Worth Divorce Legal Services
High Net Worth Divorce
The simplest definition of a high net worth divorce is a divorce involving a client who has a considerable amount of wealth amassed and generally speaking, this would be someone with at least $5 million in liquid assets. But that’s not anywhere close to being a complete definition, for high net worth divorces typically involve a broad range of financial and legal considerations.
At The Sperling Law Firm, we list high net worth divorces as one of our specialties, specifically because of the level of complexity those cases involve and because of our experience and skill with handling them.
While the accumulation of substantial assets and wealth is clearly a benefit to any married couple, the difficulties of divorce may be compounded as that same couple is faced with the task of dividing the assets and wealth in an equitable manner. Whether it is fear of losing money, questions regarding how to determine the value of volatile investments, or the challenges of valuing businesses, all of these unknowns can understandably cause anxiety.

“Big firms, with even bigger bills” is no an exaggeration.
Consider this quote from a bar association meeting in September of 2002 by Los Angeles Superior Court and then-presiding family law judge, Aviva Bobb. “By the time we see [divorce] cases in court, most people have spent all their community assets on the divorce itself.”
According to Presiding California Family Law Judge, Marjorie Steinberg in the Los Angeles Times Magazine from May 4, 2008 – If a couple can get a divorce for $100,000 in Los Angeles, Judge Steinberg considers that “pretty cheap.”
