Why You Should Build a Divorce Team for Your High Asset Divorce

professionals reviewing documents

When facing a high asset divorce, you may be concerned with the high stakes involved. If you and your spouse have contested issues, whether surrounding finances or your children, it can be stressful fighting for your and your child’s best interests while trying to compromise with your spouse. Our high asset divorce attorney shares why building a divorce team can help you exit your marriage with the outcome you deserve.


A divorce team is a team led by your divorce attorney that may include experts to help you make well-informed decisions. Depending on the facts and circumstances and the specific issues, the team can include:

  • Your divorce attorney,
  • A forensic accountant,
  • A financial advisor,
  • A child psychologist,
  • A therapist,
  • A divorce coach,
  • An estate planning attorney, and
  • Any other expert you believe can guide you through the process.

Your divorce team does not need to include all of the individuals listed above, and it may include unique individuals for your specific circumstances, like a sports or personal agent for professional athletes. You can work with your attorney to decide who will be included on your divorce team and where you should seek guidance regarding the contested issues in your divorce.


The divorce team is there to provide guidance as you navigate your divorce. Your child psychologist may help you identify what is in your child’s best interests, while your forensic accountant may help you scour financial documents to search for hidden assets. Led by your divorce attorney, these individuals can help you get a better scope of the issues at hand when entering the divorce process whether you choose to mediate your divorce or find yourself in divorce litigation.


Our high asset divorce attorneys at Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein understand how stressful divorce can be. With negotiations becoming high stakes as you work toward finding a meaningful solution to your contested divorce issues, you deserve the expertise and guidance of a skilled divorce team led by one of our divorce attorneys.
