Property Division in Divorce
When going through a divorce, one of the primary concerns for any couple is property division. Deciding how to divide marital property, particularly in a contested divorce, can be difficult. Illinois is classified as an equitable distribution state, meaning that property must be divided fairly between the two spouses. Any property that has been acquired since the marriage typically qualifies as marital property and is eligible to be divided among both spouses.
