When is it time to begin a high-asset divorce?

Ask spouses to recall the most difficult aspect of their divorce, and the answer is likely to be the same. Making the decision to end a marriage is often the hardest part of the entire divorce process. It can be hard to know when it's time to pull the plug on a faltering union, and some Colorado spouses wait for years before finally taking action. In reality, there is no ideal time to begin a high\-asset divorce, but there are indicators that suggest that a marriage is irreparable.

According to experts, one sign that a marriage is beyond repair is when one or both spouses are actively considering having an affair. Extramarital relationships place a great deal of strain on a marriage, and many spouses are unable to move beyond infidelity. However, even considering cheating indicates that there is serious trouble within a relationship.

Another sign that the union may have run its course is when marriage counseling does not yield any improvement. If a couple tries counseling and are still unable to reconnect, it could be that they have simply grown too far apart. In such cases, spouses can at least move toward divorce, knowing that they have given their best effort to try and save their union.

For those in Colorado who are considering filing for divorce, it is important to address legal and financial needs at the onset of that process. A high-asset divorce requires a complex division of marital wealth -- a process that is best undertaken by highly skilled professionals. Finding a legal advisor to guide that process is an important initial step in moving beyond a broken marriage.
