Illinois Complex Property Division Attorneys

Some divorces are complicated by the nature of the parties’ assets. Sometimes one spouse owns an interest in a business. Other times the parties’ own commercial property with rental income. Often one spouse will have rights to a pension that will not begin to pay out until years after the divorce.

In order to reach a fair and equitable result in such cases, it is important to (1) find all of the assets; (2) understand the actual value of each asset; and (3) determine whether it will be treated as “marital,” “non-marital” or a combination of both. It is important to know whether an asset was acquired before and after the marriage, how it was acquired, whose name it is titled in, and what contributions were made to its value during the marriage.  It is equally important to have knowledgeable attorneys representing you – attorneys who have experts at their disposal, including: 

  • Business valuators to report or testify about the value of your spouse’s business;
  • Forensic Accountants to report or testify about your spouse’s actual income and cash flow;
  • Residential and Commercial Real Estate Appraisers to give expert opinions as to the value of real property; and
  • Actuaries, who can calculate the present-day value of a pension or the marital vs. non-marital share of a 401(k) or IRA.
