Property Division in High Asset Divorces in Illinois
When a marital estate includes high value assets, such as real estate holdings, stocks, business interests, retirement accounts, IRAs, etc. dividing those assets can be a challenging endeavor. Illinois is an equitable distribution state, which means that property divided in a divorce does not have to be divided equally. Rather, the property should be divided fairly. Obtaining a full and accurate accounting of all of the assets in an estate and their value is the first step in the property and asset division process. This may require a forensic analysis of the estate including uncovering hidden assets. Marital property and non-marital property must be identified and separated. Our firm is skilled in handling even the most complex of marital estates. We listen to our clients’ objectives and work hard to achieve them.
Other Issues in High Asset Divorce Proceedings
Child and spousal support are also often hotly contested matters in high asset divorces. While child support is generally determined based on a statutory formula, alimony, or spousal maintenance, is more subjective. Judges have significant discretion when determining spousal support. We know how to make effective arguments on behalf of our clients, and we have a long track record of obtaining successful outcomes for our clients.
