Effective Handling of High Net Worth Divorces
For men, a high net worth divorce will involve a scenario where he earns most of (if not all) the income and manages the finances in the marriage while the wife has limited involvement and/or access to the finances. Divorce can threaten or compromise a man’s current standard of living and create financial uncertainty about the future. That said, if a man owns a business and primarily managed the finances during the marriage, he will likely find himself at a significant advantage when trying to identify and accurately value those assets, which is extremely helpful in the divorce process.
