Tips for Conduct in High Net Worth Divorces

All divorces are messy and complicated, but when significant assets and wealth are involved, it can become even more contentious. Spouses involved in high net worth divorces often allow emotion to infiltrate their ability to negotiate terms that are fair for both parties, which is especially essential when stakes are high. It is advised that you take the following measures:

  • Don't let guilt or impatience dictate. It is common to feel guilty for wanting to divorce your spouse, or to desire the quickest possible resolution in order to move on. However, these emotions may lead to you allowing your spouse to take more assets than what is fair.

  • Don't give in to your anger. Anger is another common emotion involved in divorce, which can create stubbornness and a desire for vengeance that may prohibit you from negotiating effectively.

  • Don't lie about your assets. Full disclosure is critical in all divorces, but especially in ones of high net worth. Hiding assets or providing inaccurate documentation may cause problems down the line and create more tension between parties.

  • Hire an efficient lawyer. You need a lawyer who will ensure that all of your individual assets are protected, who can investigate any additional taxes or hidden assets, and who can negotiate fair terms to ensure your needs are met. Details are crucial in a high-net worth divorce.

Division of Property with a Privately Owned Business

In divorce, complex assets such as a privately owned business could complicate the process of ending the marriage. The fair and equitable division of a privately owned business requires the skills of an attorney who can persist through the technical and complex aspects of valuing the business before division. All business assets must be properly valued before they can be divided in the divorce.

A divorce lawyer from our office can assist with the following:

  • Analyzing financial statements

  • Examining tax returns

  • Reviewing other documents that could affect the way the property is divided

  • Investigating for possible hidden assets and / or accounts

When you meet with an attorney from our office, we can discuss the matter with you in detail, including any business debts that may stem from a family-owned business. Even if the business is owned by just one party prior to marriage, the other party may be entitled to some value of it if it is considered marital property. With our help, you can determine which of your business assets are martial property and which are not.
