Divorce may be brutal, and with the divorce rate hovering between 40-50 percent, it is clearly a problem that is not going away any time soon. While you may have married with the idea that you would raise a family and be together forever, this may not be your reality. If it is not, and you choose to end your marriage, it is vital that you protect yourself in every way before, during and after the proceedings. This is particularly important when it comes to your financial assets.
When it comes to legal separation, couples sometimes face a number of challenges. For example, people may struggle with a bitter dispute over complex asset division or a parent may have a difficult time with child support and custody issues. However, for a high-profile couple, divorce can be particularly complicated. After all, with significant assets, property division can be far more tricky. Furthermore, separation is often quite emotional, especially when children are involved. For couples who are preparing to file for divorce in Orange County and across the state of Florida, it is very important to ensure that the smartest course of action is taken. At the law office of Mercedes R. Wechsler, P.A., we work hard to help high asset couples who are in this position pursue a positive outcome.
