High asset divorce often equals high stress: Several ways to help

On Behalf of | Jan 25, 2018 | Firm News |

Most Washington married couples expect to be together for the rest of their lives. There’s no foolproof way to predict which marriages will last and which will not; however, current data suggests that the likelihood of the latter is quite high in many areas. High asset divorce is seldom a process without challenges.

It’s understandable that someone who has worked for years to amass savings or build a successful business would want to protect those interests in a divorce. Many people think ahead and sign prenuptial agreements to address property division concerns should a divorce occur later. These agreements can also specify what is to occur if one party predeceases the other. There are other resources available as well for keeping stress levels low in a high net worth value divorce.

One way is to pay close attention to one’s physical and emotional health. Spending time with family or friends can boost your emotional well-being. Eating healthy foods, drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep can improve your physical health at any time, but especially during a divorce.

Some Washington spouses also find it helpful to join support groups or discuss their situations with licensed counselors or trusted confidants. Another great resource is to rely upon an experienced family law lawyer to help you protect your interests during a high asset divorceHansen Law, PLLC is ready and willing to help you seek a Comprehensive and just settlement and is always prepared to litigate any issue as necessary.
