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;
