You and your spouse have been fortunate. You worked hard and were lucky in life, so you have a great number of assets. You are wealthy and living a good life.
Unfortunately, your relationship isn’t doing well despite your financial goals being met. You’ve been looking into getting a divorce, but you want to make sure that it’s the right choice for you. It’s clear to you that both of your will be worse-off financially if your divorce, and you just want to make sure that you get all the financial support to which you’re entitled.
When you’re going through a high-asset divorce, it’s a good idea to speak with your attorney about several factors, including:
- Valuating businesses
- Uncovering missing or hidden assets
- Dividing your business interests
- Getting appraisals on antiques or artwork
- Calculating tax implications of the divorce
- Alimony or child support
It’s normal to find that there are some conflicts as you and your spouse begin working on the division of assets. Disputes are normal, and it’s possible to move past them if you work through the problem. In some cases, you may need to take your case to court and allow a judge to decide who receives which assets.
Even though this is a high-value divorce, you’re still going through many of the same issues others struggle through with theirs. You may be stressed about your finances, worried about your living arrangements or be working hard to find a new career path.
