Divorce is a traumatic ordeal. When it happens, it can be devastating. If the divorce includes the added complexity of high net worth and income, it can be a double hammer blow.

Suddenly, you might lose everything for which you’ve worked so hard. Your business, real estate, and retirement accounts could all be at risk.

Our Atlanta high-net-worth divorce lawyers understand what you’re going through. They are highly experienced with these challenging cases. If you’re considering divorce, you need help now.

Why You Need an Atlanta High-Net-Worth Divorce Lawyer

At Edwards Family Law, we are skilled in all matters related to high-asset divorces.

If you have a lot of money and property, you may need us to assist you with one of the following.

Hidden Assets

Do you think your spouse is hiding money or property? We can perform discovery to find the assets. The process can take months, so an experienced attorney is essential.

Retirement Funds and Pensions

Dividing IRAs, 401ks, pensions, and other financial accounts can be messy. However, our family law attorneys can retain financial experts and accountants to divide these assets fairly.


There are many ways to deal with a business in a high-asset divorce. Our family law attorneys can lay out the options. Then, you can determine the best choice for your situation.

Real Estate

Do you own more than one home? Multiple investment properties? Our legal team has the skills and knowledge to divide real estate equitably for high-net-worth clients.

Also, your attorney will be vital to handling the many complex issues involved in your divorce settlement. Disagreements over valuable property during divorce proceedings can get complicated and emotional. Our law firm’s Atlanta high-net-worth divorce lawyers have a proven track record of handling these financially complicated cases.

The Risks of Not Having a Lawyer

Are you thinking of handling your divorce without a high-net-worth lawyer?

Here’s why that isn’t a good idea.

Misidentification of Assets

A challenging aspect of high-net-worth cases is identifying all marital assets. You will need to determine which assets are separate and marital property. Only then can the marital property be equitably divided. Without the guidance of a law firm with expert knowledge of Georgia divorce law, high-net-worth divorces can result in confusion of individual and marital property.

Misevaluation of Significant Assets

It’s essential to place the proper value on all marital assets so they can be divided appropriately. Evaluating the value of expensive homes, real estate, and businesses can go wrong quickly without experience. A family law attorney with experience working with high-asset clients can handle it.

Hiding of Assets

It’s common for some spouses to try to conceal assets in a high-net-worth divorce. You can lose a lot of money and property if concealment occurs and you don’t have a lawyer who knows how to discover hidden assets.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a high-net-worth divorce?

A high-net-worth divorce is one that involves an estate worth $1 million or more, meaning liquid financial assets.

Will I have to pay alimony?

Georgia law states that alimony should be awarded to either spouse per their needs and the ability of the other spouse to pay. Therefore, the court usually decides that the spouse with the higher income should pay alimony to the other spouse.

How much will the alimony be?

If you must pay alimony, the Georgia court will consider:

  • Your standard of living during the marriage
  • The length of time you were married
  • Age and emotional condition of the spouses
  • Financial resources of each party
  • Time the unemployed spouse needs to secure income
  • How much each spouse contributed financially to the marriage
  • The financial situation of each spouse after the divorce

Can my divorce proceeding records be sealed?

Georgia seals few records, so it is easy for the public to find out details of your divorce details. Your divorce attorney can ask the court to seal the records. However, there needs to be a compelling reason based on harm. Our high-net-worth attorneys will make a persuasive argument but cannot guarantee a favorable result.

What is an equitable distribution of assets?

An Atlanta divorce requires the family court to divide your shared assets equitably, known as equitable distribution. However, “equitable” does not necessarily mean equal.

Your Atlanta high-net-worth divorce lawyer will present the best argument to the court to secure the most equitable distribution of assets.
