High Net Worth Divorce

If you are a high net worth individual in the process of separating from a partner, the divorce process can be extremely complex and stressful. High net worth divorce is a specialist area of the law and Harrogate Family Law have the skills and expertise to help you through this process, so get in touch with our team today.

Understanding high net worth divorce

Any divorce and separation is a time of upset and anxiety, particularly where children are involved but also where a complicated web of assets needs to be shared. Our aim as divorce solicitors is to ensure you get a fair share of the assets from the marriage, and as a high net worth individual this could involve:

  • Bank accounts
  • Savings
  • Property
  • Offshore accounts and assets
  • Inheritance
  • Businesses
  • Pensions
  • Trusts
  • Shares

When adding the welfare of children into this mix, there is a huge amount of detail, procedure and legislation to consider, which requires the dedicated expertise of specialist high net worth solicitors. Call our team here at Harrogate Family Law and we can ease this considerable burden and achieve a good outcome for you at this most emotional and challenging time.

Our objectives as high net worth divorce solicitors

Our first priority is to protect your interests at all times throughout the process, but fundamentally to achieve a good divorce settlement from the proceedings and with a quick and smooth process. Central to all this is the welfare of any children involved in the relationship, and we aim to establish arrangements for them as soon as possible, so that they can be settled and enjoy as little disruption as possible to their normal arrangements and routines.

How we help with child arrangements in a high net worth divorce

Any divorce and separation can be difficult for children to understand and deal with, and when this involves large values and complex assets, the possibility of acrimony and drawn-out discussions increases. Therefore, one of the first issues we help you to agree on involves child arrangements for:

  • Residency
  • Schooling
  • Financial provision
  • Possible relocation procedures (UK and abroad)
  • Physical health and mental wellbeing

Our expertise in high net worth divorce cases means we are ideally placed to offer the best advice.

The process of a high net worth divorce

The process for applying for a high net worth divorce is no different to a standard divorce, except that there is more complexity to the division of assets. So the specialist legal expertise comes in quickly understanding your assets and how these can be accessed and divided. We can explain this to you in terms of how you make the divorce application, what the process is, how assets will be divided and what your legal rights are. We can also help you where pre or post-nuptial agreements are in place and where you need assistance in ensuring these agreements are processed fairly and accurately.
