When a couple in New Hampshire chooses to marry, they are likely thinking of their current happiness. However, planning for the future and considering all possibilities can prove beneficial. For example, creating a prenuptial agreement can help both people better understand their financial situation as well as make plans in case the marriage ends in divorce. Some sources claim that one high asset divorce taking place in another state will likely become contentious as both sides argue over an estate worth billions; the couple reportedly has no prenuptial agreement in place.
For many people in New Hampshire, the decision to divorce is a difficult one to make. Even when the decision to split is contentious, once the process is complete, both parties move on with their lives. However, one high asset divorce has resulted in a legal battle several years after the couple's relationship ended, with one party accusing the other of deliberately attempting to hide the value of real-estate.
There comes a time in many relationships when a couple must evaluate whether they want to continue together or seek a divorce. Those in New Hampshire who choose to end their marriage likely do so with the hope that they can make the process as quick and painless as possible. While this is the case for many people, a high asset divorce can result in a great deal of negotiations and proceedings, especially if there is no prenuptial agreement in place or if the prenuptial agreement is unclear. One out-of-state couple has finally been legally divorced but is now negotiating over how considerable assets will be split.
Many couples in New Hampshire reach a point where they decide that their best option is to end their marriages. Regardless of the appropriateness of the decision for their life, it can sometimes take some time before a divorce settlement is agreed upon, especially in the case of a high asset divorce. Even once a settlement is reached, there is a potential for the agreement to be rescinded. In some cases, this can happen over what might appear to be a relatively inconsequential detail -- unsigned papers.
As we discussed in our last blog, sometimes people turn to different programs that help an individual go through the divorce process without representation because they want the process to be done quickly. A lot of clients will ask a lawyer, “How quickly can we get this done?”
