Protecting Your Interests In High Net Worth Divorce

In Illinois, marital property is divided according to the principle of equitable distribution. Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean that marital assets will be divided equally between the spouses. Instead, the court tries to distribute property in a manner that it considers fair. If you have sophisticated assets, you want an attorney who can argue convincingly for your property rights.

In a high net worth estate, the marital assets may include:

  • Real estate holdings
  • Vacation homes and cabins
  • Jewelry, art and antiques
  • High-end vehicles and furnishings
  • Businesses
  • Professional practices
  • Stock options and portfolios
  • Pensions and benefit plans
  • Retirement plans, IRAs and 401(k)s

Some cases require us to search for hidden assets and prevent the other party from transferring or selling assets. In these cases, we can file a temporary financial restraining order to prohibit the closing of financial accounts and the transfer or sale of marital property.
