Kendall County Property Division Attorney

Protecting Your Assets in an Illinois Divorce

In the wake of a divorce, property must be distributed. In order to do so, it is important to define the marital estate and ensure that the property is equitably distributed.

Illinois is referred to as an "equitable" distribution state. Equitable does not mean equal or even fair, necessarily. The simplest way to define equitable would be, "appropriate given the situation."

In some cases an equitable distribution may result in a 50-50 split, while in others a disproportionate distribution of assets and liabilities may result.

Property division is an area of family law where the skill of an attorney is critical. Negotiation can result in significantly more control and appropriateness to your unique situation.
