Distributing Complex Marital Estates Privately

What Are The Advantages Of Mediation For High-Asset Matters?
The confidentiality of the mediation process is a primary benefit for people with considerable assets. Unlike a traditional divorce, there is no public record created with the parties’ financial disclosure documents.
Control over the timing of the process is also beneficial to people who choose mediation. Meetings are scheduled at your convenience rather than by court order. The pace of the process will be established to meet your family’s needs.
The court system is able to decide only matters within their statutory jurisdiction. In mediation, the parties, with the help and facilitation of the mediator, can make agreements about all of the issues of concern to them. This can be helpful for couples with complex financial issues, including the need to divide:
- Professional practices
- Sophisticated investments or trusts
- Real estate and investment property
- Art, jewelry and other valuable collections
- Retirement accounts, pensions, etc.
In cases involving these types of assets, creative, strategic solutions may be necessary to avoid affecting complex tax planning or business relationships. When appropriate, Susan works with financial experts, appraisers, business valuators and other experts to determine how best to divide sophisticated assets.
