High Wealth? We routinely represent high-wealth clients in dissolution matters and understand the complexities that can be involved. Should additional support be needed, your St. Johns Law Group attorney can draw upon one of the many attorneys in our office for additional support, which can be very helpful in the case of a divorce involving a family business where one of our corporate attorneys can opine on matters related to attempting to pierce the corporate veil to gain access to additional assets. This is also true where inheritance is involved or long term planning for children is needed and one of our probate and estate planning attorneys can assist. More often, this also includes the involvement of one of our real estate attorneys to assist in the transaction to equitably distribute marital assists or even sell the marital home or addressing a marital home in foreclosure.

So often overlooked but critically important, is the need to revise your estate planning will and/or trust post-divorce and our attorneys can advise you on the legal issues that may be impacted, as well as drafting your new estate plan.

Whether St. Augustine, the Beach, Ponte Vedra, Palm Valley, Elkton, Hastings, Nocatee, St. Johns, or the surrounding areas, the lawyers at St. Johns Law Group are ready to deliver DEDICATED AND RESPONSIVE service.
