When high net worth spouses head for divorce, the question of asset division often comes up. Residents of Williamson, Tennessee, may have read stories about celebrities or other wealthy couples who could not come to an agreement on how to divide various assets. While the issues could easily have had to do with some pre-existing animosity between the separating spouses, such asset disputes only tend to make divorces seem bitter and vindictive.
Generally speaking, resolving any divorce dispute - not necessarily a high asset divorce - involves establishing the financial contribution of the partners to the marriage and their status following the divorce. Usually, partners have some assets of their own that they have brought into the marriage. Most times, they get to keep those assets after the divorce. If there is a chance that the divorce will create a significant disparity in the spouses' finances, an arbitrating court may find it necessary to award spousal support in addition to the transfer of some of the assets.
