Here are several tips from our Certified Family Law Specialists to help navigate the financial complexities involved in a high-asset divorce:

  • Consider the financial landscape of the marriage. Quantify all personal expenses, including babysitters, education, and additional homes. These will factor into the court's decision when determining the family's lifestyle level. Such expenses may result in increased child and spousal support or even an altered property division to account for luxurious living.
  • Gather all financial documents, going back at least four or five years. Make copies and store them in a secure location accessible only to you. This will save both time and money! Submit all documents to the court, as you'll need to disclose all information regarding your assets and finances.
  • Familiarize yourself with tax implications. Pay attention when your attorneys discuss taxes, as support and asset division can significantly impact your tax liability. Understanding your annual tax obligations is crucial.
  • Develop a fair settlement proposal. High-income individuals have unique goals. Strive to preserve your earnings while protecting your ex-spouse and children. A reasonable settlement with integrity can expedite the divorce process, avoiding a drawn-out and contentious court battle.
