Divorce is challenging for Tampa couples and families, no matter the circumstances. And careers with elevated earnings and a lot of responsibility can make divorce settlements even more complex. In some cases, being a high-ranking officer in a corporation may leave you more vulnerable to unfair treatment in divorce proceedings. If you are a CEO, executive director, or vice-president of any business, there are unique concerns you should be aware of. The Tampa Divorce Lawyers at Robert Sparks Attorneys have experience with divorce cases involving high-net-worth careers. It’s important that you speak with a skilled Tampa CEO divorce attorney before allowing your spouse and your spouse’s lawyer to decide what’s fair.
High Net Worth Divorce Concerns for CEOsOne or both partners involved in a Tampa divorce may earn considerable salaries for the important roles they serve at a local or national company or corporation. The division of savings and property fairly and to the satisfaction of both parties is the goal in any divorce, but a divorce settlement agreement is not always so easily reached. Disputes about how savings, retirement plans, property values, inheritance, and even debt should be solved equitably. Decisions of child custody and visitation rights must also be decided justly with the rights of both partners and the needs of every member of the family in mind. Sometimes CEOs and other high-level company employees are taken advantage of in divorce proceedings. They can seemingly be punished for the financial gains and possessions their hard work has earned them. In some cases, prominent business professionals must fight for fair treatment.

We know the concerns that are most critical to CEOs and other business professionals when navigating divorce in Florida.
