It is safe to say that most people think divorces are messy affairs. Along with ending an emotional bond that two people have shared for a time, those entering into divorce must make decisions about how to divvy up their property. If you or your spouse entered into the marriage with valuable assets, your divorce will probably be complex. The same goes for couples who have accumulated high value assets throughout the marriage.
Illinois is home to many couples with substantial assets. Unfortunately, some of these marriages end in divorce. As such, some family law firms who serve Illinois devote a portion of their practice to assisting in divorces that involve wealth or valuable assets. This field of family law requires attorneys to develop a good understanding of specific issues such as asset valuation and calculating incomes. The law office of Cynthia L. Lazar is one of these firms.
