Protecting Your Interests When High Assets Are At Stake
The same basic issues must be resolved in any divorce: asset division, spousal maintenance, and if the couple has children, child custody and child support. In a high net worth family, however, the resolution of these issues is more complex. It takes a lawyer with experience and considerable financial knowledge to successfully handle high-asset cases.
At the Law Offices of Robert C. Kaufman, PS, we have extensive experience in high-asset divorce. Our family law attorney has represented many employees and executives in the Washington tech industry from companies such as Microsoft, Google, Nintendo, Adobe and Boeing. He understands the type of benefits and stock options common to these positions.

What Types Of Assets Do You Need To Divide?
We have a network of financial experts we work with to perform business valuations, real estate appraisals, pension valuations and professional practice valuations. We will carefully value each asset and determine whether each one is marital or separate property.
- Businesses and professional practices
- Retirement and pension plans
- Stock portfolios
- High-end furnishings
- Vehicles, boats and aircraft
- Home and vacation property
- Investment real estate
When necessary, we can also search for hidden assets and file temporary restraining orders to freeze assets.
Is Spousal Support Involved In Your Case
There are no official caps on spousal maintenance payments in Washington. In high-asset divorces, however, the court may strive to balance the reasonable needs of the spouse receiving payments with the income of the payer.
While not always true, in some high-asset cases, one spouse may not work outside the home. This spouse will need maintenance in some form. Regardless of which side you are on, you need a skilled attorney to protect your rights.
