The timing of a high asset divorce

The end of a marriage can be difficult, and for many couples, it is important to factor in important seasons and events before moving forward with the legal process. For a person facing a high asset divorce, the timing of the divorce can be a critically important factor for the future. There are many reasons why people may delay or plan a divorce, often waiting until after the holidays are over.

Massachusetts readers may know that divorce filings typically increase after the holiday season as many people want to protect their children and family members from stress during this time of year. However, new research seems to indicate that there is also a seasonal increase in divorce during the month of August. This is likely because summer vacations commonly take place in June and July.

Vacations, like the holidays, can also be stressful and further confirm a person's decision to move forward with a divorce. If planning to divorce or delaying the process for a particular reason, it is appropriate to begin discussions with a lawyer about finances and child custody. Advanced planning can help a person understand his or her rights and begin to develop a strategy for moving through the process intentionally and expediently.

A high asset divorce brings many complicated factors that must be navigated, and it can be quite beneficial to start planning as soon as possible. Even if one plans to delay filing, it is wise to seek a complete case evaluation with an experienced Massachusetts attorney. It can be quite beneficial to know what to expect regarding finances, property division and child custody.
