Greater Assets Create Complexity In Divorce
The division of a couple’s marital property is one of the most contentious issues in any divorce. Illinois law states that all marital property must be divided equitably between the parties, but, this is not as simple as it sounds. If you and your spouse have significant assets or own a business together, the entire divorce process can become extremely complicated.
I am Thomas M. Gurewitz. From my offices in Waukegan, I have worked with many couples in complex high-asset divorces. With over four decades of experience in divorce litigation, I will be a strong advocate to help you protect the property that is most important to you.
Fighting For A Settlement That Works For You
Because of the value of the property involved, each side may be unwilling to compromise. If that is what happens in your case, I will prepare a detailed strategy that pursues a resolution that meets your specific goals. I will also help you understand the effect that the divorce will have upon your future. I can assist with many different aspects of high-asset divorces, including:
- Working with financial professionals to establish the value of a business
- Helping to uncover hidden assets or determining self-employment income
- Developing creative strategies for the division of retirement accounts
- Discussing solutions to the continued ownership of the marital home or vacation properties
- Determining the amount and duration of spousal support, if necessary, in your case
You should never sign anything presented to you by your ex-spouse prior to talking to an experienced divorce lawyer. Even if you believe that the agreement seems to be in your best interests, you really do not know what rights you are conceding. You may be unable to change any of the agreements that you make at this time, so it is important that you have someone on your side throughout the process.
