Musicians Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale recently ended their divorce proceedings with an out of court settlement. The couple split property and arranged shared custody of their three children, according to the New York Daily News. The couple had been married for thirteen years, but separated in August 2014. They cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason.
Under the high net worth divorce agreement, the two will share custody of their three children, but will not split their property equally. Because the couple had no prenuptial agreement, Stefani will receive more than half of the property from the marriage.
As the lead singer of No Doubt and the owner of a clothing line, Stefani is estimated to be worth $100 million. Rossdale, the lead singer of Bush, is estimated to be worth about $35 million. The divorce settlement is believed to reflect this difference in their earnings over the course of their marriage, according to the Daily News.
A prenuptial agreement can make settling a high net worth divorce easier. Even marriages that did not begin with a prenup may be settled without going to court. An attorney who focuses on high net worth cases can connect with any necessary experts, like accountants or appraisers, and help you negotiate divorce disputes smoothly.
