If you are seeking a divorce in a high asset, high net worth situation, you need the representation of a divorce attorney with specialized financial expertise. In addition to a Law Degree, Attorney Christina Sherman holds a Masters of Laws in Taxation. This means that she can help you understand the tax implications of your divorce, as well as represent your interests in the most complex of financial situations.
Christina Sherman understands how to value a family business, or your share in a partnership. If an asset, such as real estate, is partially community property and partially separate property, Christina can allocate the asset accordingly. If you or your soon-to-be-ex-spouse are recipients of executive compensation, including stock options, restricted stock, an employee stock purchase plan, a deferred compensation or nonqualified deferred compensation (NQDC) plan, Christina can help you understand how their monetary benefit can be characterized, apportioned and divided appropriately and fairly.
High net worth, high asset financial matters are not the only area of litigation that can be complex. Issues of child custody and visitation can also be very heated. At times, it is necessary to engage a psychologist to help determine what is in the best interest of a child. For example, it may be necessary to retain an expert to testify in court, to support one parent’s position. At other times it is helpful to retain a neutral psychologist, to assess the needs of your children and each parent’s ability to meet those needs.
