Why You Should Work with Us

The decision to work with an attorney may be the smartest choice that you ever make. Complex property division divorces are just that – complex. Valuating, and sometimes even uncovering, assets in a divorce requires the help of a professional. Once property is valued, knowing how to divide it in an equitable manner, and understanding the tax consequences of that division, is both challenging and essential to protecting your financial future.

What the Law Says About Division of Property in Illinois

Illinois law holds that any property that is considered to be “marital property” is subject to equitable division, which is division of the property in a manner that is fair and reasonable.

While you and your spouse are highly encouraged to reach a property division agreement out of court, if you cannot do so, a judge will make a property division determination on your behalf by considering each party’s contributions to the marriage, the length of the marriage, the value of the property, whether a prenuptial/postnuptial agreement exists, and a number of other factors, including any factors the court finds relevant.
