How to approach a high-asset divorce

Marriage, like a business partnership, is an extremely intertwined financial relationship. It therefore stands to reason that divorce should be an equally intertwined financial experience. Florida residents who have significant financial estates, earnings or assets stand to lose a lot when ending a marriage. It is important for people in this position to take a prudent approach to their property division settlements.

CNN recommends that spouses avoid the understandable urge to agree to almost anything simply to get through the divorce. Care must be taken to properly protect one’s future interest. For example, efforts should be made to ensure assets are not hidden or find them if they are. The tax implications of any potential receipt or loss of an asset must also be reviewed as what may seem a minor decision can have major repercussions.

Forbes adds that professionals be utilized to properly value assets. Appropriately assessing businesses, stock options, artwork, jewelry, life insurance, real estate, retirement accounts and more is no small feat. If a couple has a trust in place, this should also be carefully evaluated when getting divorced.

Another area in which many couples run into challenges when getting divorced, even those that are relatively financially savvy, is the financial determination of a true lifestyle value. Spouses who need and want to maintain their marital lifestyles after getting divorced will need to outline all of the elements that play into those ways of living. Once again, third-party involvement is generally necessary in completing an accurate analysis of what it takes to maintain a way of life.
