What the rich should understand about divorce

On Behalf of | Feb 11, 2019 | High Asset Divorce |

If you are going through a divorce in Florida, and you have a lot of money and assets, you should understand that your divorce is different from those in the middle- and lower-classes. There are different factors, such as child support, asset-valuation and legal proceedings, that make a divorce more complicated, so you should prepare in advance.

According to Forbes, there are three major mistakes wealthy couples make when going through a divorce, especially if there is not a prenuptial agreement. A major one is they do not completely address all the financial components. With a high asset divorce, you should always spend the money to hire financial analysts. Another mistake is going through the court process. There may be better options for those with money. Finally, couples often make the mistake of following advice from family and friends who do not fully understand what is at stake. While it is good to have a support system, you should always get advice from expert professionals.

Business Insider discusses other issues wealthy couples deal with. If there are children, figuring out child support is not as clear as with those in the middle class. Oftentimes the child only knows a certain type of lifestyle, and two separate households can complicate things.

Spending money on a good attorney is imperative for those with many assets. This is especially true when it is not an amicable situation. Even in cases of mediation, it is a good idea to have a legal professional on your side.
