Considerations in a High Net Worth Divorce

The most complicated aspect of a high net worth divorce is property division and spousal support. These issues can often be highly contentious, as those of high net worth have many assets to lose. Likewise, if one spouse has more assets than the other and can afford a more affluent lifestyle, often the spouse with less money will attempt to receive spousal support payments or a higher result from property division.

Likewise, those who are divorcing a person of high net worth often need to consider hidden assets. High net worth individuals know how to protect their property, so they might attempt to hide portions of their income in offshore accounts or through other means. Alternatively, a spouse could be using marital money to pay for an affair. If you suspect your spouse of hiding assets, you should consider hiring a forensic accountant, who can audit business records and determine whether assets have been unlawfully hidden or liquidated.
