Every divorce has the potential to be complicated for those who are involved. For some, the complications are primarily emotional; for others, the complications center around co-parenting plans. But if you and your spouse have significant assets the complications that lay ahead will likely be largely financial.
Financial challenges can be particularly frustrating if you don’t have a financial background or a thorough understanding of all the economic aspects of your marital estate. The fact is, when it comes to the dollars and cents of a high-asset divorce, you will likely benefit from the help of others.
A financial planner can be a critical part of your team during a divorce. Financial planners can help you understand the financial implications of your divorce and help you prepare the necessary financial documentation.
A business valuation professional can also provide much needed help during a high-asset divorce. Those who are trained in this area can help establish the fair-market value of a business. In many cases, husbands and wives will value a business very differently based on their own financial interests. Having a third party come in and perform an assessment can help establish a level playing field.
Finally, your attorney can help you understand your rights and options when it comes to how marital debts and assets should be divided. Florida property division laws are clear but they can be confusing, and people don’t always understand their options when it comes to other financial matters like alimony and child support.
