What is a high net worth divorce?

A divorce in which the assets of either one or both parties exceed financial needs is considered a high net worth divorce. A high-value divorce takes into account assets of multiple forms, including property, business shares and overseas assets. Generally, the higher the values involved, the more complex the divorce can become.

What assets are involved in a high-value divorce?

During a high-value divorce, it’s a legal obligation for both parties to disclose all of their financial assets so that they can be considered for settlement.

These assets include:

●  Business shares
●  Trusts
●  Property
●  Pensions
●  Investments
●  Inherited wealth
●  Offshore assets

Protecting yourself from future financial claims

To protect yourself from future financial claims from your ex-partner, it’s crucial that you are completely honest about your financial assets and circumstances during the divorce proceedings.

If you withhold financial information that later comes to light, making the other party feel that the settlement was unfair, they can make a new claim against your assets.

Businesses in a high net worth divorce

Your business assets are likely to be a priority to both you and your partner during a divorce and can become a very complex manner. During divorce proceedings, it is preferable for both the value and employees of the business to be unaffected, which means that if you own or run the business, you’ll likely retain it following the divorce.

Hidden assets in high-value divorces

Complete financial transparency is expected of both parties during the divorce proceedings. If you or your partner believe that the other party is not being open and honest about their financial situation, you can review their finances.

Generally, if you withhold any financial information during proceedings, it is not looked upon favourably. If you successfully hide any assets throughout the divorce, it’s possible that your partner can make a later claim if new information comes to light.

What our clients say

“Careful consideration and time …”

Thank you for steering the dispute to family foundation, something my ex-partners legal advisor should have requested form the outset as a first step. A summons to Royal Court would have been a very bad situation for all parties.

I thank you for your careful consideration and time.

Huge thank you to you Natalie and your colleagues involved with my separation agreement and making things so simple and fast in what has been a difficult time. I look forward to receiving my updated draft Will for my perusal and finalisation.

I will certainly recommend you to everyone and I have told my daughter to contact you re her Wills as she has now been waiting 9 months with numerous chaser e mails to another firm and still nothing to sign!

“Natalie and the team worked together seamlessly …”

‘Natalie and the team worked together seamlessly as a team for me consciously keeping my costs throughout as low as possible, whilst at the same time in my opinion giving me the best advice and always making sure I understood any ramifications of our decisions. They were at all times extremely kind, friendly, polite and punctual and the time spent in the offices was always friendly and not intimidating at all, almost family like.

“I think the key is the whole firm feels like a real team …”

‘Parslows were head and shoulders the friendliest and most welcoming, right from their receptionist’s warm welcome. The whole team instantly realised my position and distress, they put me at ease and explained the best way forward and the likely costs moving forward. After walking into their firm a complete mess I left feeling a lot happier and comfortable that we could all work well together, I have been working with them now for over a year and simply can’t praise them enough. I think the key is the whole firm feels like a real team.’ Legal 500 2021 client testimonial
