Even in cases where spouses agree that it's time to call it quits and are on good terms, getting divorced is never an easy or pleasant process. This is especially true when a couple has a considerable amount of wealth, as sorting out matters related to dividing assets, what to do with real estate and whether to keep or sell property can quickly become overwhelming and contentious. Add in other highly emotional divorce-related issues like child custody and visitation, dividing personal belongings and family pets, and it's easy to understand why some complex divorces take years to settle.
Going through a divorce often stirs up all sorts of feelings that can cloud one's ability to think clearly and rationally. Whether an individual feels guilty about a divorce or simply wants out of a marriage as quickly as possible, letting emotions drive divorce decisions is never wise.
For individuals with a considerable amount of assets, decisions and concessions made during the divorce settlement process can have significant and often unforeseen implications. It's critical, therefore, to secure representation from an attorney who has helped broker successful divorce settlements for individuals in similar financial situations.
