Complex Property Settlements
Leading High-Worth Birmingham Divorce Attorney
For some families going through a divorce, the division of marital property is relatively straightforward. For others, it is a far more complicated endeavor. The more assets a couple owns, the more difficult it can be to divide them. Without an experienced divorce lawyer by your side, it is easy to make a mess of things moving forward. At Shaw Family Law, we've been helping Birmingham couples through complex property settlements for more than thirty years.
We can work with you to equitably divide:
- Brokerage accounts
- Deferred compensation plans
- Family businesses
- Professional licenses
- Real estate or rental property
- Retirement plans
- Stock options
Understanding Short- & Long-Term Value
Many assets cannot be adequately divided according to their current dollar value. Others cannot be easily liquidated, or may result in significant tax obligations should they be sold. All this must be taken into account when devising a plan for the division of marital property. That's why the Birmingham divorce attorney at Shaw Family Law works in concert with other legal professionals. By leaning on the expertise of the accountants and financial planners we partner with, we're able to get a better sense of what our client's assets are worth, and how they should be divided.
"During my 30 years in the practice of Family Law, I have seen it all. The diversity of my clients and their particular circumstances has given me a broad exposure to the various circumstances and events that ultimately bring a person to a divorce lawyer. My clients are beneficiaries of those years of experience, and the expertise I have gained along the way."
