Schaumburg High Net Worth Divorce Attorney

Cook County High Value Asset Divorce Lawyers

Divorce is a complex matter in and of itself, but when you have extensive assets, you need experienced legal help to ensure an equitable outcome that will protect your interests. At the law office of Anderson Attorneys, P.C., we assist and represent clients in high asset and complex divorce matters. Attorney Jonathan Anderson has served the needs of affluent Chicago-area residents for several decades, so we are familiar with the intricacies and challenges of high net worth divorces.

Protecting Assets and Achieving Equity

In order to protect your assets, we must define them. Marital assets, with some exceptions, include any money or property acquired after marriage. Non-marital assets generally include property acquired prior to marriage or after a legal separation. Marital assets are subject to equitable distribution under Illinois laws, while non-marital assets are solely under the control and for the benefit of the owning party. Characterizing assets for the division of marital property is essential. Having a complete, accurate picture of what stands to be divided builds a foundation for protecting what rightfully belongs to you. We will pursue every avenue to investigate the parameters of your estate and consider important issues like:

  • Unauthorized transference – No transfer of property should take place without the agreement of the other party before or after a petition for a divorce.
  • Hidden assets – There are common clues that may reveal the existence of assets that are being illegally concealed.
  • Business interests – A proper evaluation of closely-held businesses helps define how or if each spouse is entitled to a financial award or reimbursement.
  • Marital agreements – The terms of any prenuptial or postnuptial agreement must be evaluated.
  • Tax liabilities – The tax implications of dividing an estate can be complex and must be carefully analyzed.
  • Retirement funds/investment portfolios – Every contribution and its source must be documented for traceability to elicit a proper judgment for such funds.

There are numerous issues to consider when handling large estates. We partner with top professionals in forensic accounting, appraisals, and investigations to build a strategy for fair property distribution. We seek justice and equity for every client.
