Wilmette Divorce Lawyers Assisting with Property Division Matters

Distribution of assets can be among the most contentious aspects of an Illinois divorce. The length of the marriage, the value and complexity of property ownership structures, and other issues can complicate the property division process. Even identifying marital and non-marital assets can be challenging, especially in divorce cases that are lengthy.

Please visit us online or give us a call at 312-624-7645 to schedule an initial consultation, or to hear more about our legal services in property division matters.

Overview of Asset Division Attorneys in Illinois Divorce Cases

State law encourages parties to agree on property division in Illinois divorce proceedings, but it will be up to the divorce court to decide how to distribute assets if you cannot reach a compromise. Our lawyers will assist you through every step of the process, including:

  • Identifying Marital Versus Non-Marital Property: The first stage of the asset division process is classifying property based upon when and how it was acquired. Marital assets that came into the relationship during the marriage are subject to distribution; gifts and inheritances to one spouse are not part of the marital estate. Our property division lawyers will make sure your assets are properly categorized as marital or non-marital based upon your circumstances.
  • Protecting Assets During the Divorce Process: There can be several months or even years between filing for divorce and obtaining a final decree. Neither party can dissipate or waste marital assets during this time. Our attorneys can help you defend claims of waste and will pursue your rights if your spouse is engaging in misconduct. We can develop strategies to locate and return assets to the marital estate if they are squandered during divorce proceedings.
  • Assessing and Valuing Marital Assets: Placing a value on certain property is relatively straightforward, but asset division can be complicated when it comes to interests in a business, complex investment accounts, and retirement benefits. Our firm works with valuation experts, accountants, and other professionals to properly evaluate various types of assets.
  • Dividing and Distributing Assets: Once the value is assessed, you are entitled to your fair, equitable share under Illinois law. This may not always mean a 50-50 split of property, but our lawyers will fight to obtain the most favorable outcome.

You can trust our lawyers to provide personalized, attentive legal services throughout the divorce process, including in dealing with property division issues. We take the time to learn about you, your family, and your circumstances.
