When dividing property in divorce, making sure everything is properly identified and valued is crucial to getting the settlement you deserve. At Sabuco Beck, P.C. our Will County divorce attorneys provide the kind of knowledgeable, professional legal representation you can count on in these matters. Particularly in complex cases involving large estates, business interests, and hidden assets, we use our experience and skill to ensure you get the maximum amount you deserve.
At Sabuco Beck, P.C., our Will County divorce attorneys have over 80 years combined experience in handling divorce cases, many of which involve complex issues with property division. Under Illinois divorce laws (l750 ILCS 5/503) all marital property is to be divided equitably between the spouses. This means rather than a 50/50 split, the court bases any settlements on factors such as the length of the marriage, each spouse’s current income and earning potential, and their actions in increasing or decreasing the overall value of the assets.
These factors can have a significant influence on complex marital property cases, which often involve large estates, family businesses, and interest in stocks, pensions, or retirement accounts. Without knowing where to look or how to evaluate an asset’s worth, you could lose significant amounts that you are legally entitled to claim. Our experience and dedication helps to ensure these types of errors are avoided.
In complex marital property cases involving potentially large divorce settlements, it is important to understand any potential tax ramifications. At Sabuco Beck, P.C., we will work to ensure you get the maximum amount you are entitled to in your divorce judgment, while helping you avoid IRS tax penalties which could cost you money in the long run. Past year tax returns are relevant in these cases, as they can be a good place to look for hidden assets.
In cases involving family estates and business interests, it is common for spouses to enter into pre- or post-nuptial agreements. Our Will County divorce attorneys can review these documents for accuracy and legal errors, while defending you against agreements that could unjustly limit your rights in a divorce settlement.
When it comes to complicated legal issues that could jeopardize your rights in divorce, you need the type of experienced representation that Sabuco Beck, P.C. can provide.
