Handling High-Asset Divorces throughout Rhode Island
In high-asset divorces, special consideration needs to be paid to a host of issues that are not necessarily part of an average divorce. Correct valuation of assets is a priority. Experienced legal counsel is also needed to determine if the assets are part of the marital or non-marital estate.
At The Flanagan Law Offices, LLC, we consult appraisers, actuaries and financial professionals to determine the true worth of the marital estate. Our experience can make a world of difference when significant assets or debts are involved.
