High Net Worth Divorce

Experienced Family Law Attorneys

Ring Off PictureSkoloff & Wolfe’s singular experience representing high net worth individuals and handling either side in high-profile divorce cases makes us uniquely qualified to represent either spouse in high net worth and high-profile divorces. Furthermore, the attorneys at Skoloff & Wolfe, P.C. understand the need to protect your privacy as well as your legal rights.

Our attorneys represent leaders—and the spouses of leaders— in the fields of investment management (hedge fund and private equity), finance, real estate, entertainment, sports, corporate executives, as well as members of America’s prominent families. From beginning to end, we work hand-in-hand with our clients to identify reasonable objectives to achieve the best possible results.

We partner with our client’s existing advisors, or help them secure new advisors when necessary so that they are prepared to move forward with their lives following divorce. We strive to ensure that our clients receive the best possible outcome and always attempt to reach an amicable resolution outside of the court system. When settlement proves unattainable we are prepared to defend our client’s interests in court.

Understanding Assets in a High Net Worth Divorce

The attorneys at Skoloff & Wolfe have significant experience devoted to cases involving business valuation, including private equity/hedge funds, treatment of trust assets in divorce, and the protection of non-marital assets.

We are regularly involved in cases involving:

  • Closely held businesses
  • Commercial and residential property
  • Pursuing or defending related to non-marital property
  • Executive compensation packages
  • Pensions and retirement plans
  • Inheritances

We have handled high net worth divorces for decades and understand the unique issues involved, whichever side of the case we are handling.

Our family law attorneys are recognized as leaders in the field of family law, have been the president (or equivalent position) of family law associations locally and nationally, and have been asked to lecture in New Jersey and around the country to other lawyers, accountants, professionals, and judges on how to best handle high-profile and high net worth divorces.

Understanding Alimony and Child Support in High Income and High Net Worth Divorces

Our attorneys are regularly called upon to negotiate, and when necessary litigate, issues surrounding the appropriate levels of alimony and child support in high net worth and high income divorces.

We work closely with our clients and their advisors to address issues surrounding marital lifestyle, cash flow available for support, income available from investments, imputation of income, savings, and the reasonable needs for a spouse and children with significant expenses.

Our attorneys not only understand the law in these issues, we have handled precedent setting cases in New Jersey that established the law. We will use our experience in these areas to help you achieve the optimal outcome on these issues.
