Trust Funds Divorce Attorney in Fairfield and Stamford CT
Fairfield County has a tremendous amount of wealth. So it isn’t uncommon for married couples to put financial assets into trust funds for their children, grandchildren and other heirs. Trusts are great estate planning tools that can save a family a significant amount of money in estate taxes. But what happens to the money in the account in the event of divorce? Legally, the money is in the name of the trust fund, rather than either spouse.
If you are considering divorce in Connecticut and have a significant amount of financial assets in a trust fund, you have the right to gain control of the money in your divorce settlement. As an experienced Connecticut divorce family law attorney, I represent a significant number of clients who have high net worth tied up in accounts that do not offer immediate liquidity.
I have the experience and knowledge of trust funds and marital property division to handle the most complex property settlement matters, including unbinding trust fund assets and financial assets tied to securities and stock portfolios. I work with independent experts to thoroughly prepare settlement options that are fair to my clients, including future value of assets in retirement holdings, trusts and business assets.
I have extensive experience representing clients with divorce settlements involving complex financial assets including:
- Trust funds
- Cash value of life insurance policies
- Securities and stock portfolios
- Deferred executive compensation
- Pensions, 401(k) and other retirement earnings
- Business holdings
- Overseas accounts and tax shelters
- Debt and tax obligations
