What You Need to Know About High Net Worth Divorces in New Jersey

How do I know if I am in a high net worth divorce?

Essentially, if you or your spouse owns at least $1 million in assets, you are in what is known as a high net worth divorce.

What assets are at stake in a New Jersey high net worth divorce?

When entering the equitable distribution process, high net worth individuals will generally have far more complex assets at stake compared to others. For instance, if you are a high net worth individual, you may own several different properties, you may own a business, you may have stock options, bonds, complex investments, and more. You need an attorney on your side who can protect those assets from the equitable distribution process.

Is there anything I can do to save my assets from a divorce?

Under many circumstances, you can. To start, if you are a high net worth individual and are not yet married, you should strongly consider drafting a document known as a prenuptial agreement. This document can outline what will happen to various assets should you ever get divorced in the future. If you have already married, though the conversation may be a bit harder to have, you can draft a document known as a postnuptial agreement. This document functions the same as a prenuptial agreement, though it is drafted after marriage.
