We recently discussed how divorce mediation might help some people who are going through a divorce. This is a method that can help you to work through problems and get your divorce finished in a faster and more cost-effective manner. We did mention that it isn’t for everyone, so you have to think carefully about it before you make your choice.
High-asset divorces have some unique considerations that might make mediation a bit more complex. This doesn’t mean that mediation shouldn’t be attempted. If you feel comfortable with the concept, mediation might still be a viable option.
We know that you are probably concerned with how your property will be divided. The chances are good that you aren’t going to split everything down the middle. We can try to work out a settlement that balances assets with debts so that you start your single life off on the right foot.
If you have businesses, investments, and retirement accounts, you will need to ensure that these are balanced in the divorce. You don’t want to be stuck with assets that you can’t benefit from right now. You also don’t want to be stuck with assets that are money holes. Instead, you need to ensure that you have a settlement that provides with a good mix of asset types so that you aren’t struggling to make ends meet now.
We know that you probably have an idea of how the settlement should work. We can help you to explore different options that might give you the ultimate outcome that you need the divorce settlement to provide.
