Orland Park High Asset/Complex Divorce Attorneys

Divorce is a complex situation and when you add extensive assets to the matter, you need experienced legal assistance to ensure an equitable outcome. The Orland Park law office of Anderson & Associates, P.C. represents clients in high asset and complex divorce matters. Our firm has litigated many complex divorce cases for the past thirty years, therefore, we are familiar with the complexities and challenges that come with high net worth divorces.

To guard your assets in a divorce, you must define what they are. Marital assets are acquired after marriage (with a few exceptions), and non-marital assets are generally acquired before marriage or after a legal separation. Illinois laws dictate that marital assets are subject to an equitable distribution, whereas non-marital assets are solely under the control of one spouse. Defining assets for division of property agreements is necessary. Having a complete understanding of what is to be divided in a divorce will help protect what justly belongs to you. In order to properly value a marital estate, our attorneys will do a thorough investigation including the following issues:

  • 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 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

When handling a large estate, there are many issues to consider. We consult with top professionals in forensic accounting, appraisals and investigations in order to build a plan for fair property division. We seek justice for our Orland Park clients and throughout the Chicago suburbs.
