Orlando Attorney Experienced With Complex, High Asset Divorce Protects Your Interests in a Contested Divorce

The experience, knowledge and resources you need for your complicated matrimonial law case

Attorney David Scott Glicken recognizes that complex, high-asset divorce cases cover a breadth of areas of legal topics from family law, estate planning, tax law, and benefits law to real estate and business law. He has the knowledge and 35 years of legal experience handling divorce and all the challenging emotional issues that come along with it. From the division of assets to child custody and spousal support a family law attorney must be willing to take on these tough negotiations and come up with a solution that is fair for all parties concerned.

Effective solutions for financially complex divorce cases

Clients look to David Scott Glicken for his strong litigation skills and his responsiveness to their needs during an incredibly challenging time in their lives. When you are going through a divorce, you want an attorney who knows what he is doing, is excellent at what he does, and hates to lose.

In complex matrimonial law cases, we consider the marital estate carefully. We identify and value the marital assets such as:

  • Complex compensation plans
  • Pensions
  • Stock options
  • Retirement portfolios
  • Investment accounts
  • Real estate
  • Art collections
  • Jewelry
  • Intellectual property
  • Businesses

Florida is an equitable distribution state, however, equitable does not necessarily mean that assets get divided equally. Anything that each spouse has acquired before the marriage, has not been put in both spouses names, or co-mingled with marital assets will not be counted among the assets that will be divided into the divorce settlement. There are several factors in Florida law that will have an effect on how assets and liabilities are distributed between divorcing spouses including:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Wealth of the parties
  • Effect of the marriage on either spouse's career
  • Contribution of one spouse to the others education and career
  • Contributions of the homemaker, care and education of the children
  • The desire for one spouse to retain a business without interference from the other party
  • Intentional waste of marital assets within two years prior to filing for dissolution of the marriage

Our goal is to support you in coming to an equitable settlement that allows each party to move on and focus on creating a new life after divorce.

Navigating the complexities of high asset divorce

Mr. Glicken has handled many complex, high asset divorce cases, so he understands the issues involved in helping people separate their lives in a fair and equitable way, some of which include the following:

  • Prenuptial Agreements - We can help you develop prenuptial agreements that are fair and equitable, and we can help you challenge an existing prenuptial agreement under certain conditions.
  • Spousal Support / Alimony -Times are changing and the courts are changing how alimony is ordered in divorce settlements. Attorney David Scott Glicken will assess your individual case and help you pursue the type of alimony that might be appropriate for your situation, and he can help protect you against unreasonable claims for spousal support.
  • Business valuation in the division of assets - Dividing an asset such as a business is one aspect of what makes high net worth divorces complicated, but Mr. Glicken has experience dealing with business valuations, stock options, retirement portfolios and all of the other issues that will factor in to the divorce agreement. Determining current and future value of a business can be subjective and it can have a significant influence on the settlement.
  • Real Estate - In addition to the family home, couples going through a complex divorce might also be dealing with a second or third home-sometimes located in another state or outside the United States. We can help you deal with real estate appraisals and division.
  • Modification of Orders - A divorce decree can be modified because of changes in circumstances, income, relocation to another state or other factors. We can help to make sure that your interests are protected with respect to the modification of your divorce decree.

No one really emerges from a divorce feeling like a winner. Both parties want to feel as if they got a fair settlement, and that they want to feel confident about moving forward with the rest of their lives. If both parties cannot come to an agreement, then there will be a trial and the courts will decide on how your assets and debts will be divided, who gets custody of the children and how spousal support will be paid (if at all). Attorney David Scott Glicken works tirelessly to help you get the best value from your divorce settlement so that you can feel good about your future.
