Detailed Divorce Strategies for Maryland Couples with High-Net Assets

Assisting clients in the value and division of their property and support payments

Couples who are financially well-off often face unique challenges when it comes to their businesses and investments; should that couple choose to end the marriage, those same factors can complicate family law matters such as support payments and property division. The law firm Peters & Clark, P.A. is uniquely qualified to help couples with substantial assets move through the dissolution process efficiently and smoothly, ensuring that their clients’ best interests in regards to their children and their property are met within the confines of Maryland state law.

Issues of support for children and spouses

All people are treated equally under the law, regardless of what kinds of assets they have and under Maryland’s Guidelines for child support. Wealthy couples, however, may find themselves with support payments that are above the standard Guidelines; this is because family law judges in Maryland are given a degree of discretion/latitude when it comes to setting child support payments.

Furthermore, because alimony awards are based on the amount of assets, income and property a couple has (among many other factors), it is important that these assets are appraised correctly. The attorneys of Peters & Clark, P.A. have the skills and experience needed to help clients value their assets accurately to ensure that both child support payments and alimony payments are set with the client’s best interests in mind.

Complex property division

When the court divides property, it does so equitably to ensure that both sides receive their fair share of the assets and debts. Equitable is not equal, however, and it is easy to lose possession of that which you value most without the help of a skilled family law attorney. The attorneys of Peters & Clark, P.A. offer practical guidance to clients whose assets include:

  • Real estate, such as rental properties or vacation homes
  • Investments
  • Retirement plans
  • Stocks
  • Pensions
  • High-value cars or motor vehicles
  • High-value art
