Any given divorce case in Florida has the potential to get messy quite quickly, depending on the circumstances. However, high asset divorce cases can be complicated and emotional because of one issue above all others: property division.
Property division in a high asset divorce
The reality is that many divorcing couples have quite a bit of wealth and assets to divide up. Unfortunately, sometimes this issue is complicated by arguments over what, exactly, should be included in the “marital property” that is subject to division. Or, it may be difficult to place a value on certain assets, such as artwork or a business interest. When these factors, among many others, are present in a high asset divorce, both soon-to-be ex-spouses will be looking for options.
In some cases, direct negotiations between the parties or, perhaps, mediation can help the divorcing couple reach an acceptable resolution in the case. However, other cases must be pushed all the way to trial. After all, the impact of the property division aspect of a high asset divorce case could be felt for years or even decades after the divorce is finalized. Fighting for what is yours will only seem natural to many people.
