Understanding Equitable Distribution and High Net Worth

In New York, property, assets and debts are distributed under the law of equitable distribution. Division of assets and property begins with identifying marital and separate property. Once that has been established, the court must divide marital property according to thirteen factors which are set by law. However, you may make an agreement that is different that what a judge is required to do using different considerations. Our attorneys have extensive experience protecting the rights of wealthy clients, including physicians, attorneys, business owners, screenplay writers, professional musicians, models and TV celebrities.
