DuPage County Asset Protection Divorce Attorneys
Many divorce disputes include confusion over who owns what and what belongs to whom. This is especially complicated by divorcing couples who own businesses together. Our attorneys seek out the best possible resolution for our clients by enlisting the help of certified professionals such as business appraisers, forensic accountants, and other financial experts in order to ensure that assets and long-term investments stay with our clients.
There are some assets that can be considered jointly-owned in a marriage, regardless of whose name is on the bank account or title to the property. If an asset was acquired during the marriage, it may be subject to division in a divorce, with the possible exception of any assets received as a gift or as an inheritance during the marriage. Those assets may be considered non-marital property and might be protected, as well as assets and investments protected before marriage by pre-nuptial agreements.

- Real Estate
- Pensions, 401ks, and IRAs
