How to Prepare for a High Net Worth Divorce


Though all divorces present complexities, high net worth divorces are inherently more difficult to manage. With more property and issues that surface during the process, it’s important to get organized and stay organized. Doing so ensures a fair settlement and property division amongst spouses with different earning potentials and other factors at play.

It’s common to feel anxious about the divorce process if you’re dealing with a high net worth situation. However, the tips below should help you take control of the process and prepare yourself for what’s to come.

Get Prepared for What’s to Come

Most individuals who struggle with the divorce process are simply unprepared as to what to expect. However, it’s best to familiarize yourself with the divorce process during your meetings with your Naperville divorce lawyer so there are no unexpected twists and turns along the way.

Preparing for a high net worth divorce also means getting organized. You should be diligent in sourcing all necessary documentation and other information during the divorce. Doing so is the simplest way to ensure every asset is accounted for.

Here is a brief list of what you should collect:

  • Mortgage statements;
  • Properties other than the marital residence;
  • Vehicles;
  • Investment, bank, and retirement accounts;
  • Businesses;
  • Jewelry; and
  • Other assets or valuables owned by you or your spouse.

Know What You Want  

Every individual should enter the divorce process with a general idea of what they want and expect out of a settlement. High net worth divorces rarely settle because many couples have a difficult time compromising. However, it’s still important to know what you want to gauge a baseline of how far apart both you and your spouse are.

Of course, you must concede some of your demands if you hope to settle the case and retain more control over the process. With thorough preparation, you can also prepare your case for trial, should it be necessary.
