What Will Become Of Your Assets?

Because Illinois is an equitable division state, any assets you acquired jointly during your marriage must be divided "equitably" upon your separation or divorce.

Homes, vehicles, important possessions and even debts your spouse ran up during your marriage can be assigned in any way a divorce judge decides, provided each party receives what the court considers an equitable share.

Although divorcing spouses may be tempted to take the other side to court in an attempt to maximize their asset recovery, in almost all cases, spouses are better served if they can divide their assets through a negotiated or mediated settlement.

As an experienced division of assets attorney, I can negotiate with the other side, so that you can keep the assets that are most important to you. In the end, this can save you and your divorcing spouse significant amounts of money, time and grief, as well as limit the damage to your relationship, which can be especially important if you share custody of a child.
