Property division challenges during a high-asset divorce

Some Massachusetts residents have probably heard something about the pending divorce involving Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his spouse of 25 years. The couple jointly announced the decision via social media shortly after 2019 began. Even though the pair appears to be headed toward an amicable split, there will likely be some challenges ahead when it comes to divvying up assets valued at nearly $140 billion.

Property Division - What is subject to division?

In some cases of divorce the court will order one spouse to pay the attorneys' fees of the other. This is most likely where there is the large disparity between the income levels of the parties, or if one of the parties unnecessarily escalates the attorneys' fees in the case by requiring litigation of issues and refusing to entertain settlement offers. It is also possible for the parties to reach an agreement on the payment of attorneys' fees as part of a marital settlement agreement.
