Child Custody and Divorce Lawyers
Our client, Husband, is a high-level executive at an international corporation who receives multiple forms of compensation, from multiple countries, creating a complex matter for divorce proceedings. Shaw Law Firm PC was retained as the second attorney, after the first failed to reach settlement. Husband committed adultery during a long-term marriage in which Wife had deferred her career to Husband’s career in order to raise their now college-age child. Wife was demanding $5 million in stock options and other assets, along with close to $1 million in alimony. Wife’s attorney and a financial expert were greatly inflating the value of stock options and other assets. The key in this case was to be very precise and simplify the complexity of all these assets.Case Result: Wife was awarded just 1/10th of what she had demanded in stock options and only three years of alimony.Fulton County, Atlanta, Georgia
