It does not include any previously owned assets or other belongings you may have possessed. In the Cook County Court, you will be required to submit a financial affidavit detailing this property, which may include any of the following:

  • Land, homes, or vacation properties;
  • Memberships in timeshares or country clubs;
  • Cars, motorcycles, boats, or other recreational vehicles;
  • Furniture, artwork, and other home decor;
  • Antiques and other collectible items;
  • Individual or jointly owned businesses, inventory, and supplies;

Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (750 ILCS 5/503), factors that may influence marital property division include:

  • The length of time the couple was married;
  • Each spouse’s earnings and income potential;
  • Any career or educational sacrifices made by one party, in the support of the marriage;
  • The actions each spouse took over the marriage in accumulating assets or marital debts.
