Barrington Illinois High Net Worth Divorce Lawyer Aggressively Protects Your Rights

Palatine IL divorce attorney

At The Law Office of Nicholas W. Richardson, P.C., individuals and couples in Chicago's Northwest Suburbs work with Attorney Richardson to achieve amicable settlements for divorce agreements, whether through traditional litigation or alternative dispute resolution methods of mediation and collaborative law.

However, when significant marital assets are at stake in a high net worth divorce, negotiation may be insufficient as a means of solving problems. Each party can be adamant about getting his or her way, which can lead to costly, lengthy, and sometimes highly contentious divorce litigation in a courtroom. Spouses with substantial assets often face issues that require the attention of an attorney, such as the valuation of a closely held business, valuation and division of pensions or retirement accounts, division of future stock options, and examination of the marital estate.

When the experience and efficiency of your legal representation matters, turn to Nicholas W. Richardson in Palatine. His goal: to preserve your marital estate so that an equitable division can be made. He can provide insight on the potential benefits of financial experts to determine your estate's value.

Armed with the knowledge of your estate's worth, Attorney Richardson will negotiate a settlement that will provide you with an equitable share of marital property and ensure that you will have the financial resources you need in the years to come. In a contested divorce, he can prepare arguments for a necessary trial in court.

High Asset Divorce Lawyer in Palatine and Chicago's Northwest Suburbs

When accusations fly and tensions run high in a high net worth divorce, you need an attorney who calmly lays out the facts of your case. In court, Attorney Richardson defends you on the following issues:

  • Property Division — We work to ensure that you will be able to recoup your financial and material investment in your marriage. In a high net worth case, you may need to address multiple residences and valuable family heirlooms, as well as concerns related to deferred income and executive compensation. We can also help uncover hidden assets that may require investigation by forensic accountants.
  • Spousal Support — If one spouse earns a significantly higher income, the other spouse may request ongoing support payments to ensure that they will be able to sustain the lifestyle to which they are accustomed. We can ensure that Illinois law will be applied correctly when determining eligibility for spousal maintenance and calculating the amount and duration of support payments.
  • Child Custody and Child Support — In addition to helping parents get past their differences and maintain dual, prominent roles in a child's life, we can help ensure that children will receive the proper amount of financial support based on large incomes for one or both parents, while also addressing the significant child-related expenses that parents may need to pay and ensuring that parents contribute to children's college expenses.
