High Asset Divorce Archives

Divorcing women need to do a better job of financial planning

A study conducted by TD Ameritrade in 2017 highlighted how 40 percent of all marriages end in a divorce and how at least 25 percent of all seniors age 65 and older are widowed. If you're wondering what one statistic has to do with the other, it's that at least 66 percent of those belonging to both groups admitted to not having a contingency financial plan in place if one of these life-altering events occurred.

Student loan debt is fast becoming a leading factor for divorce

If the average American were asked what the leading cause of relationship problems was in the United States, they'd likely admit that it has to do with financial discussions. What many likely wouldn't know is what researchers at SunTrust Bank found out. They determined that one in eight marriages end over student loans.

Cryptocurrencies are often uncovered by Florida divorce attorneys

When it comes to divorce, some husbands and wives will go to great lengths to hide their assets from their spouse in hopes of avoiding having to turn over their hard-earned assets. While it's illegal for someone to take and hide money or belongings when a divorce is imminent, many spouses do it anyways, hoping to never get caught.

Uncovering assets hidden during a divorce is far from impossible

In an equitable distribution state like Florida, a judge is often called upon to determine how to fairly distribute marital assets between the couple in alignment with the contributions they've made to the marriage. Even with this approach to asset division in place, it's not uncommon for a spouse facing an end of his or her marriage to try to hide money, property or other valuables, especially if he or she fears losing them in a divorce.

What to do with your business when you're headed for divorce

As if divorce weren't complex enough, deciding what to do with a jointly run business can make things even more complicated. There aren't any recent statistics that capture just how many couples jointly own a business. However, one statistic captured in 2000 suggested that just under 7 percent of all 22 million American small businesses were owned by couples that year.

Where your spouse is likely hiding assets as you look to divorce

If you grew accustomed to living a relatively comfortable lifestyle while married to your soon-to-be ex, then you likely will want to continue to do so once you divorce. Oftentimes, though, it's not possible because your spouse may have hidden some of his or her more valuable assets, making it impossible for you to enjoy the quality of life that you've long enjoyed.
