Investment Protection Lawyers in Calabasas
Protecting Your Current and Future Investments During Divorce in Los Angeles & Ventura County
At Feinberg & Waller, APC, our attorneys understand firsthand what your investments mean to you. There is a significant amount of work that goes into each investment, with time, money, careful consideration, and a large amount of risk in each one. When you take a risk and the future value pays off, this accomplishment should be yours alone.
During a divorce, it can be difficult to watch your hard-earned assets be divided with an ex-spouse. We believe clients should keep the money they have made through investments — now, and in the future, if you must pay alimony. We believe this is worth protecting.
Determining What Property and Assets Must Be Split with an Ex
California is a community property state. All investment income or savings earned during the length of the marriage will be distributed evenly as part of a fair distribution of property. The reality, though, is that investments you had prior to marriage may also become targets for property division in high-asset cases. Your attorney will need skill and experience when fighting to protect your investment accounts and property.
Feinberg & Waller, APC has earned a reputation among high-net-worth clients in the Los Angeles area for our capacity to handle the complicated financial issues relating to protecting investments in divorce. Our skills in untangling legal and financial intricacies help protect your rights, while we advocate assertively for your financial interests. As your case progresses, we perform a cost/benefit analysis to keep you apprised of the costs of litigation. You will always be in a position to make informed decisions.
