High-asset divorces present unique challenges above and beyond typical property division concerns. Business owners, executives, investors and even certain kinds of contractors have different types of complex income streams. Particularly in the upper tiers of large businesses, executives are compensated by incentives and bonuses unavailable to other professionals. Each case is unique and presents its own challenges.
Deferred compensation packages provide professionals incentives to stay with, work on and build organizations.Â Examples of this type of compensation include phantom stock, performance units, restricted stock, future options and discretionary incentive packages.
Similarly, personal businesses pose unique challenges. Except for a few office assets, there may be nothing specifically that is divisible. That said, it is critical to understand whether there is "double dipping" by non owner spouses, among other things. Identifying funds as income or assets may be extremely important.
