Watch out for toxic behaviors in a high-asset divorce

When you ask your spouse for a divorce, there's certainly no guarantee that he or she will accept that request civilly and move forward. In many cases, one person feels hurt or angry, and those feelings cause tensions to escalate. This can lead to a toxic divorce.

You need to watch out for these toxic behaviors, which can include things like:

  • Hiding assets
  • Cutting you off from the children (parental alienation)
  • Stalking you
  • Harassing you and making threats to your health and safety
  • Damaging your reputation
  • Damaging your property

Naturally, in a high asset divorce, the stakes can be fairly high. Property damage could include illegal activities like destroying a $100,000 luxury sedan. Attacking your reputation could mean damaging the reputation of your company and making it harder for you to earn money moving forward.

Hiding assets is perhaps one of the biggest issues in this situation. People who feel angry and did not want a divorce sometimes feel like that gives them the right to take whatever selfish action they want. They move assets into overseas bank accounts or create phony shell companies to hold the assets for them. The entire goal is simply to keep a fair share from a spouse who has a right to these assets.

With so much on the line, it is very important for you to understand all of the legal options that you have. Do not let someone else's toxic behavior impact your divorce or violate your rights. Make sure you know what steps you can take to protect yourself and get through this legal split smoothly.
