High-Asset Divorce: the Role of an Experienced Attorney

We note online on one of our firm website pages that, “Each divorce case is unique.”

That is far from being cliché; we firmly believe that. Further, and as long-tenured and proven family law attorneys, we know it to be true.

Some marital decouplings are primarily focused on child-related matters. In other divorces, there are no children, and different separation-related factors come to the fore. Sometimes those involve support considerations. In other dissolutions, equitable asset division is a focal concern.

One realm of the divorce process that is indeed singular in Illinois and elsewhere across the country is high-asset divorce. In many ways, the concerns of divorcing persons commanding substantial wealth are not that different from those held by many other divorcing parties, except for the magnitude of income and other resources that might be at issue.

Of course, such assets can be truly significant, and dealing with them legally in a smart and purposeful way in a divorce calls for the studied and proven input of a family law attorney well versed in high-net-worth dissolutions.

Our firm represents high-asset divorce clients with passion, knowledge and vigor, ensuring that their interests are fully promoted in all property division matters. At the same time, we make hard and conscious attempts to keep post-divorce relationships alive when possible, given that many wealthy clients maintain business relationships and other asset-related contacts. Effective legal representation is generally not about scorched-earth tactics; rather, it is far more often centered on promoting clients’ objectives and civility.
