High assets possibly at stake in billionaire divorce

Some people are very successful in their business lives but not very successful in their love lives. When such people go through a divorce, there can be many disputes regarding the division of property and finances. An amicable parting can soon turn into a complicated divorce that can stretch on for months and even years as spouses argue over everything from alimony to financial settlements.

After it was announced that a wife had filed for divorce from her billionaire husband, speculation began to fly over how much money the woman would receive. It is unknown whether the couple signed a prenuptial agreement when they married 25 years previously. The wife has accused her husband of having premarital affairs and it is unknown whether that could be used as a weapon against him.

Some reports say that the wife could receive as much as $5 billion, if not more, if the matter ends up before a court judge. Since the couple's two children are likely adults, it seems that if there is any kind of disagreement, it will be over how much the husband is willing to pay and how much the wife wants. Neither party has appeared to make a public statement regarding the potential high asset divorce.

If the couple is unable to come to an agreement, this divorce could find its way into a courtroom with the whole world watching to see what the wife will receive. Some estimate that it could result in the largest divorce settlement ever. When a person is dealing with the end of a marriage, it may be a good idea for them to meet with an experienced attorney for legal guidance.
