High Assets, High Stakes In Divorce

A home, a vehicle, bank accounts and regular income are vital interests for an adult of any income level. Planning for and securing financial security becomes even more critical as one faces divorce, with all its accompanying destabilizing factors.

Divorce takes a marital estate and divides it in two. Typically, the higher earning spouse worries about losing more than his or her fair share, while the lower earning spouse worries about making it without the support he or she has become accustomed to during a marriage.

Whether your financial situation places you in a category of average, above-average or high income and assets, divorce planning can help allay fears. If your divorce can be considered a high-asset divorce, stakes may be high as post-divorce ownership of income and assets such as the following hang in the balance:

  • Commissions and bonuses
  • Deferred compensation plans
  • Retirement assets, including 401(k) savings accounts
  • Investments
  • Life insurance policies
  • Vacation accounts
  • Jewelry, art, guns and other collectibles
  • Business interests
  • Second homes
  • Luxury cars
