Any given divorce case will involve quite a range of issues to address, from child custody and support to alimony and property division. However, when a couple has a significant amount of assets, it is the property division part of the divorce case that can become more contentious than even the parties involved might expect. After all, New Jersey residents work hard for their earnings and likely will not want to accept any out-of-court agreement they view as unfair.
High asset divorces can be tricky, but there are a number of ways to try to navigate these cases in order to reach a result that both of the soon-to-be ex-spouses can live with in post-divorce life. Fighting it out in the courtroom is usually not the most economical way to deal with such cases, but it is an option if all else fails.
One option could be to go through divorce mediation. In such a scenario, the couple and their respective attorneys will present their positions to a neutral third-party mediator, who will, typically, go back and forth between the parties to attempt to reach a satisfactory arrangement. Most mediators bring years of experience to the process, which can help them formulate creative solutions to problems that arise.
Of course, there is always the option of attempting direct negotiations between the parties as well. If the couple is amicable enough to see that getting the divorce over and done with is best for everyone, they may be able to put aside emotions and reach a logical property division agreement.
