How to ask for a divorce when high assets are in play

It goes without saying that going through the divorce process, regardless of how much money you have, can and probably will change your life in a variety of ways.

However, if you're going through a high asset divorce, there is even more to think about. It all starts with the way you ask for a divorce. Although this can be one of the most difficult things you ever do in your life, it's something that you may have to tackle at some point.

Here are the best ways to ask for a divorce when high assets are in play:

  • Get to the point. Rather than wait around and hope for the best, you need to lay out your true feelings. This will go a long way in helping everyone get on the same page.
  • Think through the process before speaking. You don't want to move forward so quickly that you make a mistake that could cost you now or in the future. This is a big decision, so tread softly.
  • Make a list of your assets on day one. You need to know which assets will come into play during the divorce, as this will put you in the right position when it comes to discussing matters of property division.

There is no right or wrong way to ask for a divorce, but there are steps you can take when you know how many assets will be moving to the forefront. The steps that you take upfront will go a long way in helping you avoid a poor decision down the road.
