Going through a Divorce?
Let a Fairfield County and Connecticut Divorce Attorney Help
When a marriage ends in divorce, one household becomes two. Dividing years of shared property can be a painful process because of the emotional value placed on these items and the complexity of separating jointly held assets. Reaching an equitable distribution of assets can be even more complex when the clients have a high net worth or the parties own other significant assets. In this situation, it is particularly important to have an experienced attorney handling your case to protect your rights and assets. A Fairfield County divorce lawyer at Siegel, Reilly & Conlon, LLC, offers experienced and personalized representation to guide you through the divorce process.
The Importance of Valuing Your Assets
Proper valuation of high-end assets in a divorce is of the utmost importance. Our attorneys have the experience and resources necessary to value your property and assets and can determine a fair and accurate inventory of your assets.
Siegel, Reilly & Conlon, LLC frequently handles high net worth divorce cases including the following types of property and assets:
Special Circumstances Pertinent to High Net worth Individuals
Couples that have acquired large assets during their marriage can have particular issues arise during their divorce that can make the division more complex. Sometimes a spouse may be motivated to hide or not fully disclose assets from the other spouse. If suspected, our firm has experience with specialized discovery methods to find hidden assets.

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process that resolves legal conflicts without litigation. The two parties work together with a mediator who is a neutral party, often an attorney. The mediator works to help the parties learn each other's needs, and then the mediator offers options to create a way to meet those needs. If the parties can work together, they can reach a satisfying outcome with less stress and cost than would be obtained through litigation. This option also offers more privacy than litigation, which is appealing to many people who do not want the details of their divorce made public.
Arbitration is where an arbitrator, which is a neutral party agreed upon by the parties, hears the evidence presented by the parties, and renders a decision. The arbitration process is much like court proceedings before a judge except it is private.
Collaborative law is a process where an attorney represents each party and they agree in advance to make all attempts to resolve family law differences without litigation. Collaborative divorce attorneys represent the parties by working together, rather than adversely. Like mediation, you also avoid the publicity of a divorce trial.
