Physicians present a unique and complex set of issues during the dissolution of their marriage. This is why it is paramount to ensure that you have an attorney who is well versed in handling high net worth divorces, particularly those relating to physicians. We work hard to ensure that we get you everything you are entitled to, while protecting your assets as much as possible.
Your legal counsel will take into account the special considerations of a divorce involving a physician spouse.
- Typically, if only one spouse is a physician, there is a significant disparity in income between the physician spouse and the non-physician spouse. This can lead to an increased risk for a more substantial sized support payment. Our job is to focus on ensuring you have a fair outcome that does not create an undue burden for you to uphold.
- If you or your spouse is a physician with part or whole ownership of a medical practice, it’s survival could be threatened by the divorce proceedings.
- On the opposite end of the financial spectrum, debt accrued to obtain physician status or to open a private practice could be considered a shared burden, rather than the sole responsibility of the physician spouse.
- The demanding schedule of a physician can complicate visitation schedules with children and may require a more inventive approach to your visitation arrangements.
