Marriage is a financial and legal relationship, in which financial concers are at the forefront when the relationship comes to an end. High net worth asset individuals have to consider many more items when dealing with a divorce.

Assets complicate a divorce, and couples dealing with significant amounts of assets, businesses, or property will need to understand the implications of the divorce. Business values are tied to cash flow, liabilities, and receivables. The ability to separate these values properly requires experience and a full understanding of accounting, finance, and tax implications. When dividing assets in a divorce, the tax implications of this division should be understood. Tax planning and a full understanding of the options available should be undertaken. The division of assets in a divorce can also effect spousal support.
