Divorce Attorneys for Professionals in Somerset County

Fighting for Your Fair Share of the Professional Practice

Doctors, dentists, therapists, lawyers, engineers, accountants, investment brokers, financial advisers, architects, and other professionals often own or jointly own a practice. When marital property is valued and divided in a divorce, the professional’s spouse may have rights to a portion of the practice’s value. Obviously, there are many factors that must be considered in these situations. It is crucial that your legal counsel has a comprehensive understanding of these factors while working to protect your financial future.

At Shimalla, Wechsler, Lepp & D’Onofrio, LLP, our Somerset County divorce attorneys for professionals understand these issues. Whether you are a professional or the spouse of a professional, you can rely on our dedication and support at each step of the process.

Representing Professionals & Their Spouses in Divorce

In New Jersey, the marital estate is divided by equitable distribution, which means a distribution that is fair to each party. It is not unusual for spouses to have very different opinions of what is fair.

Consequently, enlisting experts to establish the practice’s value may be vital. Furthermore, as nonprofessionals cannot share ownership in a professional practice, the nonprofessional spouse must be compensated with other marital assets.

Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience necessary to represent you during a complex financial divorce.

We can assist with:

  • Valuing the practice
  • Determining how to compensate the professional’s spouse for his or her interest in that value
  • Working out spousal support that is fair to each party

In some cases, a prenuptial agreement may control how marital property is divided. In every case, our Somerset County professional divorce attorneys are prepared to closely analyze the facts of your case and advance toward a positive resolution.

Please call our office today at (908) 356-7634 to arrange an appointment with our team.
