Attorneys for Divorces Involving High Net Worth and Financial Disputes in Chicago and DuPage County

For anyone going through a divorce, the process of dividing your life from that of your spouse is likely to be complicated. However, some cases can become much more complex than others, especially when couples need to address financial matters such as high-value property, multiple sources of income, and business ownership. In these situations, it is crucial to have a skilled divorce lawyer on your side to help you determine the best way to maintain financial security once your divorce is complete.

The attorneys of Weiss-Kunz & Oliver, LLC are highly experienced in complex divorce cases, and we know how to identify and address the legal issues that you are likely to experience. We can help you work with outside experts such as forensic accountants and financial appraisers, and we will strongly advocate on your behalf to help you achieve a positive outcome to your case. We can help you negotiate a favorable settlement, and if negotiations break down, we are prepared to advocate on your behalf during divorce litigation.

Legal Issues Involved in a Complex Divorce

There are a wide variety of financial matters and other concerns that can complicate a divorce case. Our attorneys can help you determine the best way to address:

  • High Net Worth Divorce - If you and your spouse own significant assets, or if either or both of you earn a high income, you will need to make decisions about property division, spousal maintenance, and other matters.
  • Business Valuation and Division - Business interests owned by either spouse may be considered marital property. The monetary value of business assets must be determined so they may be properly divided between spouses.
  • Protecting Professional Practices or Family Businesses - Licensed professionals and small business owners will want to ensure that marital assets are divided in a way that will allow them to maintain their livelihood.
  • Hidden Assets - We can work with you to uncover any property or income that your spouse may be attempting to conceal during the divorce process.
  • Retirement Accounts, Pensions, and SEPs - 401(k) accounts, IRAs, pensions, and other assets meant to provide a person with income upon retirement may be considered marital property, and they must be equitably divided between divorcing spouses.
  • Protecting Family Wealth - Spouses who come from wealthy families or who have accumulated significant assets may need to ensure that some of these assets will be set aside for children or other family members.
  • Dividing Trusts and Estates - Recipients of inheritances and beneficiaries of trust funds will want to understand how divorce will affect these assets.
  • Corporate Officers and Shareholders - During divorce, executives and corporate shareholders may need to resolve issues related to bonuses, deferred compensation plans, and ownership of complex financial assets.
  • Entrepreneurs and Business Owners - If you have built your business from the ground up, you may want to take steps to protect it well before divorce ever enters the picture.
  • Celebrities and Public Figures - People who are in the public eye may not only need to address issues related to large financial assets, but they may also want to take steps to keep matters related to their divorce private and confidential.
  • Tax Considerations - In addition to addressing the tax implications of the division of assets and liabilities, couples with a high net worth may need to be aware of capital gains taxes, gift taxes, and estate taxes.
  • Litigation Involving Health Issues - Physical or mental health concerns, including substance abuse, can play a significant role in divorce proceedings, and spouses may need to go to court to resolve issues related to child custody or financial support.
