Property Division and High Net Worth Divorces in Kane County

High net worth divorces may also bring other issues to the forefront, including child support, alimony/maintenance, tax strategies, business and stock issues and division of debt. Unlike common divorces, high net worth divorces may be more complex when dealing with these issues.

Distribution of marital property is a particularly challenging matter in high net worth divorces. In Illinois, marital property is divided fairly but not necessarily equally because it is an equitable distribution state. However, before the estate is divided, marital property and non-marital property must be identified and separated.

The classification of marital versus non-marital property often causes contention between the parties involved in a divorce. Our attorneys craft and present compelling arguments in order to advocate for clients’ interests in property division.

Determining the value of marital property is another component of importance in high net worth divorce matters. Complex assets, such as retirement plans and investments, as well as business valuations can be a particular challenge in property valuation matters. However, our attorneys have decades of experience handling marital assets with high value. We work with financial professionals to properly value marital property and obtain an accurate determination.

Additionally, our attorneys work with financial professionals skilled at forensic accounting and asset tracing in order to uncover any assets not accounted for in discovery. We have experience dealing with issues such as off-shore banking, which is becoming a particular trend those with high net worth might use to undervalue their assets. We also have worked to trace hidden assets in order to uncover any unreported property or investments.
