Equitable Distribution of High Net-Worth Estates
Illinois is an equitable distribution state. Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean that marital assets will be divided equally between the parties. Instead, the court strives for a distribution that it considers fair. For this reason, you want an attorney who can argue convincingly for your property rights.
In a high net-worth estate, marital assets may include:
- Businesses and partnerships
- Professional practices
- Privately and publicly held companies
- Stock options and portfolios
- Pensions and benefit plans
- Retirement plans, IRAs and 401(k)s
- Real estate holdings
- Jewelry, art, vehicles, boats and high-end furnishings
With our business law practice, we have experience with all aspects of corporate law, including the tax consequences of each business entity. We also understand the dissolution of businesses, including their stocks. This knowledge is very valuable when we are advising clients who own businesses as part of a marital estate.
