Allocation Of Property
Rock Island Property Division Attorney
One of the biggest and most immediate concerns about divorce is property division. This requires defining the marital estate and what assets are marital versus non-marital. It is important to realize that Illinois is an “equitable” distribution state, meaning that the asset distribution may not be equal or even fair; the asset distribution will be defined by the court as appropriate given the unique situation.
In some cases, it may be a 50-50 direct split, but it may result in a disproportionate distribution of assets/liabilities depending on factors determined by the court. Because of the nuanced subtlety that asset distribution requires, the skill of an attorney is crucial if you seek to protect your interests and financial well-being.
