Common High-Asset Issues in Oak Brook Divorces

Couples who own significant assets or that have high net worth often encounter unique issues during a divorce compared to couples with less wealth. For example, couples with more assets have more at stake in terms of preserving or protecting those assets, maintaining their wealth, and limiting their tax obligations. Additionally, high-asset couples often have holdings or interests in various businesses, real estate properties, and complicated investments.

Under Illinois law, any wealth that is accumulated by either spouse during the marriage is usually considered to be marital property and, therefore, must be divided equitably between the spouses during divorce. Equitable distribution of a high-asset marital estate may require the input of business appraisers, real estate brokers, financial planners, and other experts to ensure that each asset is properly identified and evaluated. Our lawyers will help you find the right professionals to assist with your situation so that your best interests are protected.
