People who are smart enough to grow significant wealth are smart enough to protect it. Although it is impossible to predict the future, many are often blindsided by divorce, spousal infidelity, financial dishonesty, or other life-changing events. In these cases, I can help control the financial and emotional damage my clients experience.
At Andrew Russ Law, LLC, in Columbus, Ohio, I represent clients facing divorces involving many complex and sophisticated financial matters. Many have significant assets to protect, including:
Each case is different, and these assets can be dissipated in many ways. Sometimes, men pay too much for spousal support/alimony. Other times, dishonest ex-spouses intentionally spend down assets or run up credit card bills in the other persons' names. Many also lose many assets through property division in the divorce process.
Ohio generally recognizes the equitable distribution of marital assets. Under our state's law, each spouse is considered to have contributed equally to the production and acquisition of "marital property." Courts divide marital property equally, unless such a division would be unfair to one of the parties. In such a situation, the court must divide the property fairly instead of equally.
Asset protection can involve many different strategies that protect property and make sure that it is divided fairly, not just equally.
