Divorces can be painful and highly stressful, especially when the stakes are higher due to the value of assets between the couple . If you find yourself going through a high-asset divorce, here are a few things to keep in mind during the process:

  1. Choose your battles.
    When it comes to divorces, things can get messy. Make sure you are not constantly fighting with your partner about your assets, or anything else for that matter. Keep a cool head, and let your attorney fight for you.
  2. Don’t lie.
    This seems like an obvious tip, but you would be surprised at how many people try to hide how much money they really have. Do not misrepresent the assets you have. Be truthful with your attorney. If you are deceptive with your assets, it will be discovered and will cause more trouble than it‘s worth.
  3. Be wary of social media.
    It’s best to stay away from all types of social media when it comes to divorce cases. Even if a post is only to inform friends and family, anything you say can be used against you in court. You wouldn’t want to accidentally be misrepresented. So for now, twitter can wait.
  4. Choose the right person to represent you.
    Your divorce attorney needs to know all the ins and outs of your situation both financially and emotionally. The more they can understand you, the better they can fight for you and your assets. Part of choosing the right attorney means being able to trust them.
  5. Organize your documents
    In order to help your attorney understand the entirety of your case, it’s important that you document everything, and keep those documents organized. The more they have to work with, the easier your job will become. So when in doubt, save and organize your documents.
