How a prenup can assist business owners with a high asset divorce

Building a business from the ground up is an incredible accomplishment, and is often the culmination of years of planning and hard work.

Less social stigma associated with high asset divorce

For many Pennsylvania spouses, concern over how a failed marriage might be perceived is a primary factor in postponing or delaying a divorce.

There seems to be a trend toward increasing social acceptance of divorce. That could help some spouses who are markedly unhappy but unsure about moving through a high-profile or high asset divorce.

Sadly, this happens more often than not, but one does not have to give into a spouse's bullying.

The special concerns of a high asset divorce

Every divorce is not created equal.

Pennsylvania residents who are going through a high asset divorce simply have special concerns that others going through the dissolution process may not have.

It seems that there are very few marriages in which both spouses are fully aware of what assets they share. It is not uncommon for one spouse to shoulder the responsibility when it comes to managing finances. While sitting back and letting one's spouse handle everything when it comes to assets and property may work during the marriage, it can create a lot of issues if a couple chooses to divorce -- especially in a high asset divorce case. In order to ensure a fair division of property, couples in Pennsylvania who are dissolving their marriages will want to make sure all assets are properly accounted for before signing off on property division settlements.

Going through a high asset divorce? Consider property appraisals

For instance, in a high asset divorce, sifting through assets, obtaining proper valuations and ensuring all assets are accounted for can be a long, drawn-out process, which may not seem worthwhile when one just wants to move on with his or her life. However, if you are going through a high asset divorce, whether in Pennsylvania or elsewhere, this is something that cannot be overlooked.
