Wife fears husband will take all in divorce

On Behalf of | Jan 18, 2018 | Divorce

Ohio exes may attribute any number of things as the cause of their divorce. Money, another love interest or simply growing apart can all be reasons a marriage does not work out. A woman who filed for divorce from her husband several months ago has filed a new lawsuit seeking certain assets before her husband can leave her with nothing.

The two were married 28 years and built an empire worth hundreds of millions of dollars in the banking and insurance industries. The wife claims her decision to file for divorce came when husband chose to no longer financially provide for two of their children and refused to pay for one of their houses. She is now requesting a judge grant her another of the homes the two shared at one time, a $15 million apartment.

She claims her husband has already liquidated assets in the amount of $66 million. She fears he intends to continue with everything he owns and then leave the country to live with his mistress. She says she and her children will be impoverished, should the judge not put a stop to it.

The stress of any divorce can be overwhelming at times but those that involve immense net worth seem to be more demanding, simply because there is more over which the couple can fight. More assets often mean it takes longer to come to an acceptable settlement, which leads to the potential for mistakes to be made. It usually takes the expertise of an Ohio attorney to ensure the interests of his or her client are protected when coming to an agreement.
