The complexities of divorce for clients with substantial assets
When a couple decides to end their marriage – even in cases where both parties are amicable and in agreement – disputes are almost guaranteed to arise when it comes to dividing assets. For couples who have amassed numerous assets and properties over the course of few or manty years, these disputes can often become quite contentious. Our Nashville complex divorce lawyers work with economic and financial experts when necessary to ensure the just valuation and equitable division of:
- Joint and family businesses, as well as shares or ownership stakes
- Large-scale marital estates
- Real property, including those with attached rights
- Pensions, QDROs, military pensions and retirement accounts
- Antiques, jewelry, autos or other valuable collectibles
We also assist clients who wish to create pre-nuptial agreements in the event of a life change later on, to protect their children as well as themselves.
We understand the issues that need to be addressed before a divorce can be finalized. Our Nashville divorce attorneys have helped clients successfully navigate their way through spousal support agreements and property division in a rational way. In cases where the divorce becomes particularly contentious, we are prepared to go to court if the other party refuses to be reasonable.
Whether in the context of a divorce or between unwed parents, determining all of the points of a child custody agreement is rarely easy. We have helped many parents negotiate parenting plans and custody agreements out of court – but we are also prepared to fight for parents seeking sole custody or seeking joint custody over the resistance of the other parent. For same-sex couples, issues of paternity can affect both parenting time and support payments. Our Nashville same-sex divorce lawyers are well-versed in the legal statutes regarding these issues, and have the experience to take on even the most complicated cases.
Whether married or unmarried, parents have a legal obligation to contribute to the support of his or her children. However calculating child support is not always straightforward. You can rest assured that our lawyers have the experience to help you sort through the many considerations that affect the child support calculation, and to arrive at an amount that is proper under the circumstances of your case, whether by agreement or in court.
