Property division, aka “division of marital assets,” is an important aspect of the divorce process that will help to define your financial future.
Illinois is an “equitable distribution” state, meaning that marital assets and debts will be distributed equitably between the spouses. Keep in mind, that “equitable” does not mean equal – but it is supposed to be fair.
If you and your spouse cannot agree on divorce property division, the judge will decide how to divide your property – endeavoring to make an “equitable distribution” of your marital assets and debt.
Because every marriage is unique, determining what is fair and equitable is not always apparent, and the value of certain assets such as businesses, stock options, pension plans, and retirement accounts can be extremely complex.
