The ability to focus is what makes a professional athlete stand out. Divorce can make it hard to focus on the hoop, the hole or the posts.
- More assets to divide: For most people, the property to be split in a divorce is limited. As a professional athlete, your assets may be more complicated. Your income may come from various sources; you may have multiple properties and have money invested in numerous places. Working out the actual value of all of this takes time and expertise.
- Less likely to have fixed routines: If you or your partner are a professional athlete, your routine may change with the sports season. You may travel for weeks at a time on international tours, or to training camps. You may frequently travel to other states or countries to play matches or tournaments.
- More likely to move home: Your next job may require you to move to another state or even another country. Moving will affect your children’s lives too, and even after divorce, it could affect that of your spouse. You need to find a way for both of you to spend time with the children regularly, which is much harder if one of you lives far away.
- Less privacy: People are not satisfied with watching you play; they want to know about your personal life too. If you are going through a divorce, they are sure to want to know about that, and the media will be only too happy to oblige.
Professional athletes need their divorces to be handled efficiently. Choosing the right legal team can allow you to concentrate on what you are good at, knowing that your divorce is in safe hands.
