This high asset divorce continues to rage on

Most Florida couples reach a point in their divorce when they accept the end of the marriage and begin to focus on their futures as single people. That, however, is not always the case, as evidenced by a high asset divorce in which the parties remain deeply mired in bitterness and anger even after their divorce was made final. It's hard to imagine why two people in their 60s and 70s would choose to continue to fight when they divided assets worth nearly $2.5 billion. 

Estate planning during and after a high asset divorce

The role of art in a high asset divorce

Many wealthy couples purchase art, expensive furnishings or other one-of-a-kind items during their marriage.

When a Florida couple is headed for a high asset divorce, art can also serve as a vehicle for concealing wealth.

Ideally, spouses will begin planning for investment even before the settlement is signed.
