Divorce For Professionals And Their Spouses

Divorces involving professionals and professional practices are often complex. In addition to valuing the business, it is necessary to determine income for child support and alimony purposes. Because professionals often do not earn traditional salaries, but instead are paid based on the financial health of a practice, determining income can be difficult.

At Porcello Law Offices, our attorneys work closely with financial professionals, including certified public accountants (CPAs), forensic accountants, real estate appraisers and business valuation experts to value the entire marital estate, including professional practices. Items we evaluate include:

  • Bank accounts
  • Partnership agreements
  • Retirement accounts
  • Profit-sharing agreements
  • Deferred compensation plans
  • Stock options and investment portfolios
  • Real estate

Protecting Professional Practices

During a divorce, all property must be divided between the spouses. This process often puts professional practices, homes and other valuable assets at stake.

At Porcello Law Offices, we use creative techniques when fashioning divorce settlements. By thinking outside the box, we are able to prevent the liquidation of professional practices and preserve our clients' hard-earned assets.
