Lawyer in Geneva for Divorce Cases Involving Substantial Assets and Wealth

Equitable division of marital assets in high net-worth divorce cases can be challenging for all involved. Spouses with high net worth often share complex assets, joint investment accounts or retirement accounts, multiple real estate properties, and other financial assets that can be difficult to divide. McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. will help you take a full accounting of your marital assets to begin fighting for a division of property that is fair to you.

If you are going through a high net-worth divorce, you will need a highly knowledgeable and experienced attorney to protect your interests and fight for a divorce resolution that works for you.

Dividing Complex Assets

When you and your spouse share complex financial assets such as investment portfolios with fluctuating values, or you own a business together or individually, division of property during divorce may seem like an almost insurmountable hurdle. The tax considerations alone can be difficult to calculate and factor in. You will need an attorney who has experience dividing complex assets during divorce to protect your interests. This process can be challenging but resolution is possible.

McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. understands the intricacies of dividing complex financial assets during the divorce process. We will strive to ensure that the entire marital portfolio is divided in a way that allows you to maintain a similar lifestyle to which you enjoyed during the marriage.

High Conflict in High-Value Divorces

Most clients hope for an amicable divorce. Ideally, your attorney will be able to negotiate a divorce settlement agreement with your spouse that works for both of you. However, that is not always possible and the more complicated the marital estate the more challenging it can be to negotiate a settlement, which is why in high-value divorce cases, conflict is more likely. Spouses may disagree over the division of complex assets, or control of a business. Or, one spouse may simply refuse to be reasonable or make compromises.

It is not uncommon in high net-worth divorce for one spouse to be concealing assets or dissipating marital funds. If you suspect that this is the case, McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. will work with forensic experts to conduct a full investigation to identify and trace all your marital assets.

Enforceability of Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements often come up in high net worth divorce cases. The existence of an agreement does not always mean that it is enforceable. Illinois courts understand that circumstances change and that enforcing prenuptial or postnuptial agreements would be drastically unfair in some cases. There are several legal reasons that the court may not enforce these agreements, and our team will fight to prevent you from being harmed by an unfair prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
