Most Arizona residents know the name, Jeff Bezos. In the last year, he was named the richest man in the world, due, in large part, to his role in making Amazon a staple in households around the world. However, Bezos is also a husband and father, and, despite his dramatic wealth, he is a person who must deal with everyday problems.
One common problem that Bezos confronted recently is the end of his marriage. He and his wife decided to end their more than two decade-long relationship in order to live their lives separately. With more than an estimated $150 billion at stake in their divorce, one may expect that Bezos and his wife would be set-up for a stressful and antagonistic experience.
Money can complicate divorces, but it does not have to. The separations and marital dissolutions of some of the richest people in the world show that those who prioritize amicability, supporting their kids and keeping the peace can emerge from their high asset divorces without anger, hostility or resentment. It is yet to be determined how the Bezos’ divorce will play out, but the parties will undoubtedly rely on support and guidance to ensure that their rights are protected throughout the process.
Men and women who are preparing for their own high asset divorces may have concerns about what property and assets they will be able to keep as they end their marriages. As all divorce cases are different, it is important that readers contact their trusted family law attorneys to understand how the law will apply in their particular divorce cases.
