Obtained Favorable Settlement in Financially Complex Divorce

Posted by Caitlin Shortell | Dec 18, 2022 | 0 Comments

Shortell Law LLC successfully argued at an evidentiary hearing that a prenuptial agreement was procedurally unfair, and therefore unenforceable.  This victory allowed our client to negotiate for a significantly higher portion of the assets he had helped his former partner accumulate during their relationship, both prior to and during the marriage. 
Ultimately, Caitlin Shortell was able to secure her client's financial future.  
The assets in this particular case included multiple businesses, a de facto business partnership between the two parties, and a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio.  The parties also disputed custody of their two children, one of whom was adopted.  
A significant challenge Shortell Law LLC addressed during this case involved the opposing party's attempts to obscure the scope and value of assets she possessed.  The firm was able to partner with real estate brokers and apply investigative techniques obtained through years of experience in commercial litigation and financially complex family law to identify the true value of the assets our client was entitled to.
