Illinois Property Division Worksheet

Before going to court, have a better understanding of the value of your assets and property.

Divide Marital Property

Many times dividing marital assets is not only difficult but ends up driving the cost of the case up as well. The best way to approach this complicated process is by having a firm understanding of what the law says regarding property assets and debts beforehand so you know what to expect.

Illinois is not a community property state, where everything would be split down the middle and instead works by “equitable distribution“. This means that a judge will take any number of factors into account including income, debts, age, employability and many others to determine how to best divide the assets. Any assets acquired before the marriage that remained separate will remain non-marital property as well as any inheritance or anything given explicitly as a gift to you. If you’re ever unsure of the status of any of your assets, you should contact a lawyer to get as clear a picture as possible.

"I was represented very well, my attorney fought for me, and definitely made sure my interests were well represented. I felt as though Dan, my attorney, would go to war with me, and do everything in his power to make sure I came out on top."
