High Net Worth Divorce in Arizona
Phoenix Divorce Lawyers for High Net Worth Clients
Many of the clients who come to the Law Offices of Scott David Stewart for assistance are high net worth individuals. Some are members of the thriving local business community, while others possess wealth they have inherited and are concerned about keeping in the family. In other cases, our client is the spouse of a business owner or other wealthy individual and is intent on walking away from the divorce with his or her fair share of the marital estate. It happens all too often that a divorce will leave one of the spouses on unstable financial footing, struggling to make ends meet, or having to work for years to regain the standard of living that he or she once enjoyed.

Our Phoenix divorce attorneys share more than 65 years of combined experience, and we have a long list of satisfied clients whom we have assisted with every aspect of their family law cases.

Concerns to Address in High-Asset Divorce Cases
Very often the outcome of a high net worth divorce will be influenced by the presence of a prenuptial agreement that the spouses signed prior to entering upon the marriage. Many individuals who possess considerable wealth, own businesses, or are otherwise concerned about protecting themselves against claims of spousal support and
property division take this precaution. Depending on which side of the issue you are on, we may seek to invalidate the terms of the agreement by demonstrating that it is not legally enforceable or we might have to defend your prenuptial agreement against the claims of your spouse.
In addition to having a hard-hitting attorney on your side, your divorce may also require the services of accountants, financial advisors and other professionals who can assist with matters of business valuation and other questions that will arise in the course of dividing up assets and debts. We are prepared to put our skill and experience to work in fighting to defend your right to receive the amount that you are due.
