A San Diego divorce involving a CEO or executive or the owner of a business or professional practice is quite more legally and financially complex than many other divorces.  There are many challenging issues in most divorce cases ranging from child custody and parenting time to questions of support and how to divide the equity in the family home and even beloved pets.

Property division requires accurate valuation of all assets (vested or unvested) including but not limited to:

  • Stock options, bonuses and all forms of deferred compensation
  • Retirement accounts, 401(k)s, IRAs, pensions
  • Investment real estate and securities portfolios
  • Collections such as vehicles, art, boats, guns or other collectibles
  • A business or professional practice

There are many ways to disguise income and the value of specific assets.  Many of these cases require forensic accounts and other experts who can help to identify potentially hidden or under-reported assets and/or income or render accurate appraisals.

A San Diego divorce involving a CEO or executive or the owner of a business or professional practice contains many risks for both the executive or business owner as well as their spouse.  This is especially true if both spouses share an interest in the business or have separate sources of significant income, wealth or their own business interests.
