Ex-mayor Rudolph Giuliani's wife seeking high asset divorce

Years ago, Rudy Giuliani, became one of the most well-known mayors in the country after the 9/11 terrorist attack. Shortly before that horrific event, he was widely criticized when he announced at a press conference that he was divorcing his wife in favor of the woman with whom he was having an affair. Kentucky residents may not be surprised that his current wife is now seeking what will likely be a high asset divorce.

Judith Giuliani recently filed for a contested divorce from her husband of 15 years. She has indicated that she is seeking an equitable share of the former couple's marital assets, including properties they own in other states. Giuliani confirmed the divorce by stating they have separated and are seeking a process that will be as amicable as possible. He further requested that their privacy be respected and went on to suggest that there is equal blame for the dissolution.

The former mayor has maintained a presence in politics. He was purportedly considered to serve as Secretary of State, but he withdrew his name from consideration just before the appointment of Rex Tillerson, who was, himself, recently fired. Giuliani is now the head of a task force dealing with cybersecurity, while also serving as a liaison for private corporations on these matters.

The subject of a high asset divorce is a private matter and the majority of Kentucky residents will not draw national attention when beginning this process. When there are considerable assets at stake, former spouses may be concerned about how to ensure they are able to maintain an accustomed standard of living. In order to ensure that one is able to reach the best possible result, he or she may be best served by consulting with an experienced attorney who routinely handles these types of proceedings.
