How will spousal support maintenance be determined in a high net worth divorce?
In some high net worth divorces, both spouses have high-powered careers as executives or professionals. They make a similar amount of money and will continue to do so after they separate.
In other high net worth divorces, by contrast, one spouse is more financially dependent on the other. The divorce could cause a dramatic drop in the ability of the dependent spouse to support him or herself. Spousal support can cushion the financial blow.
