How to Secure a Speedy and Fair High Asset Divorce in Murfreesboro and Greater Tennessee
Everyone has seen the headlines from the divorce of a celebrity or business mogul. These divorces can be downright nasty. Where one or both spouses have the financial ability to drag out the process, it is all too common that they do so. Not every high asset divorce, however, has to play out like the headlines. With more than four decades of high net worth divorce experience, the family law attorneys at Kidwell, South, Beasley and Haley know how to facilitate a speedy and fair divorce. From steps you can take before marriage to tips during the marriage, rely on us for professional pre- and post-nuptial legal representation.
Pre-nuptial planning that can benefit both you and your spouse during divorce
No one enters into a marriage thinking they will later get divorced. Our intentions are always to fight for the relationship through thick and thin. Circumstances arise, however, in which this becomes unrealistic. Statistically, 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. Given this reality, you should be thinking smart about your future before marriage, especially if you are bringing substantial assets into the relationship. Talk with your partner about financial expectations. It is also wise to execute a prenuptial agreement to protect the assets and earnings you bring into the marriage. Kidwell, South, Beasley and Haley can craft an agreement that best positions you for success if the unthinkable happens. An appropriately drafted agreement can also save your partner time and money during a divorce.
We remind clients to be on top of assets, property, and debt during marriage
Do not stop paying attention to financial issues during the marriage. Keep abreast of what assets you and your spouse hold, including:
- Checking and savings accounts
- Retirement and pension plans
- Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other investments
- Real property
If you and your spouse have a business together, stay on top of business earnings and expenses. There are different ways to organize a business that can protect you if the marriage and business relationship end. The Murfreesboro family law and high asset divorce attorneys can help you decide what sort of structure works best in your situation.

But, reaching a mutually agreeable settlement with your spouse is the most efficient and least stressful manner in which to resolve your divorce. The divorce and family mediation attorneys at Kidwell, South, Beasley and Haley competently negotiate settlements in high asset divorces. We work tirelessly to ensure that the agreement meets the needs of you and your children after divorce.
