Assisting Professionals With Property Division Matters Of Divorce
When it comes to employees in the upper echelons of corporations and companies, there is a whole world of compensation options. Large business organizations find multiple ways to retain highly compensated employees, including incentives and income not available to regular employees or even midlevel professionals.
These deferred compensation packages provide an incentive for professionals to stay with a company and work hard to build on it. Phantom stock, performance units, restricted stock, future options and discretionary incentive packages are variations on the often complex types of compensation offered to these executive-level employees.
When such an employee is facing a divorce, or a person is seeking a divorce from a highly-compensated professional, these plans can present extremely complex valuation and property distribution issues. If you are facing such an issue, our legal team at The Haston Law Firm, P.C., can help.
