Because of its success, Amazon and Jeff Bezos have become a household name. Bezos is thought to be worth over $150 billion dollars.

In January 2019, when word broke that Jeff Bezos and his wife of 25 years were calling it quits, lawyers and financial gurus tried to predict how their wealth would be divided. Many felt it would be the divorce of the century with lots of financial and even more personal information disclosed.

But the Bezos took an unexpected divorce route – they utilized mediation and the collaborative divorce model to come to an amicable divorce agreement. By taking this route, they spared their financial portfolios and personal lives from the whole world to see.

By choosing the collaborative divorce process, Jeff and Mackenzie finalized their divorce agreement by April 2019.

During a collaborative divorce, both spouses vow to keep out of court and the public’s eye.

The collaborative divorce process utilizes an interdisciplinary collaborative team approach, which includes attorneys and may include mental health professionals and a jointly retained neutral financial specialist, who all work together as problem-solvers to assist you and your spouse/partner in reaching a fair and confidential agreement.
