Specialist High Asset Worth Divorce Lawyers
High net worth divorces are significantly more complex than average divorces. The attorneys of Ramos Law Group have the experience and expertise necessary to successfully navigate this type of divorce.
At the Ramos Law Group, we understand your unique concerns about finding and tracing assets, dividing funds in a variety of holdings, characterizing separate and community property, maintaining privacy, and creating fair provisions for spousal and child support. The high asset divorce attorneys at the Ramos Law Group have a proven track record of negotiating and litigating favorable outcomes in even the most important and highly-contested divorce cases.
The Discovery Process
The strategy used during the discovery process often determines the outcome of the case. The attorneys and paralegals at the Ramos Law Group are comfortable managing high volume discovery cases as well as seeking and responding to motions to compel additional discovery.
In a high net worth divorce, failure to properly respond to discovery requests can result in financial sanctions issued by the Court. Failure to properly request all relevant information can result in an unfair result as one spouse may be able to successfully hide assets. Failure to properly object to inappropriate or overly broad discovery requests can result in private or proprietary information being turned over to the other party. The information gathered and given away during the discovery process is critical in the ultimate property division.

After financial information has been gathered during the discovery process, it must be compiled into a format that is clear to the Court. The high net worth divorce attorney assigned to your case will make sure this happens. The Court must understand the nature of the property in order to make a fair division.
High net worth divorce cases differ from other divorces in that it is common for one or both parties to hire a valuation expert or tracing expert. A valuation expert determines the value of the property held by the marital estate. Often individuals enter a marriage with substantial assets or perhaps inherit money or property during the marriage. These assets should be characterized as separate property and should not be considered in the division of the estate.
It is the responsibility of the person claiming the property as separate to clearly prove the origin of the asset. If the property is not clearly shown to be separate, the other spouse may be able to claim a portion of that asset.
Privacy is an especially important consideration in a high net worth divorce. Mediation and arbitration are a confidential alternative to hearings in open court. Additionally, it may be important to seal your divorce to prevent it from becoming a part of the public record.
Child and Spousal Support
Spousal support is frequently an issue in cases where there are substantial assets to divide, as is child support. Guideline child support is based on an individual’s net monthly income. Child support is currently ‘capped’, and only the first $9,200 of net monthly income is considered in many cases. Child support can be awarded above this cap by showing that the proven needs of the child exceed the amount of money that would be awarded under the maximum guideline child support.

Our Client Testimonials
The decision to end my 25-year marriage was not an easy one, but hiring the Ramos Law Group was. From the initial consultation to the execution of the Divorce Decree everyone at the firm displayed the utmost professionalism and I was treated as if I was their only client. My attorney Lindsey, always provided precise legal guidance, was usually one step ahead of the opposing counsel, and had a superb understanding of how things would play out in the court room. Additionally, whenever my case needed a little extra horsepower, Mary provided that "surge" to keep things on track.

"I received excellent advice and representation from Ms. Lindsey Lewis. She kept me updated at every step of the process, and I never felt as if my case was set aside. I would hire The Ramos Law Group in the future. "
"I started my divorce with a lawyer who was not very responsive. My divorce case was complicated and needed more laborious scrutiny. Since the case was not moving forward I had to switch lawyers. Made the switch to Ramos Law group. Since the very first day Mary and her team have been very efficient and meticulous. Since the case was complicated the team had to go through myriads of pages in discovery. I was pleased with the legal team that helped us handle the paperwork in a very timely manner. All my questions were answered very promptly. The relay of information was easy with their software system. We finally had a law firm that we could trust. My divorce was finalized and I only have Mary and her team to thank for going through a difficult divorce. I would highly recommend the Ramos law group for their help and support for getting my life back on track. "
