When you own high-value assets, such as a business, reaching a divorce settlement can be very complicated. For example, if you and your wife are real estate professionals that run a joint company in Delaware, you will have to decide if the two of you can continue working together or if you should sell the business. Each option comes with its own set of complications.
There are a lot of unfortunate side effects to a divorce. You may worry about seeing and spending time with your kids. Your retirement account could end up much smaller than what you'd hoped by this point in your life. You may even need to find a new place to live. Chances are good that you're already working to address these issues. It's also likely that you could overlook other important concerns and considerations in the process of your divorce.
