High Net Worth Divorce

High Profile and High Net Worth Divorce


High net worth divorce is an area where our San Diego family law attorneys have considerable experience. Most divorces involve the same issues – primarily disputes over child custody, spousal support, and division of property. However, when it comes to high profile or high net worth couples, dividing up assets and determining support can become even more contentious. In these situations, discretion is often critically important in order to avoid media and public scrutiny, particularly when a high-profile couple is involved.
