An Overview of the Illinois Property Division Laws

When a married couple files for divorce, they will need to divide their assets and liabilities. Illinois is an equitable distribution state. In effect, this means that state laws call for all marital property to be split in a “fair” manner.

To be clear, fair does not mean equal—at least not in every case. Equitable distribution of assets may or may not be an even split depending on the facts of your case.

Complex Property Can Be Difficult to Split in a Divorce

Dividing certain types of property is easier than others. Once the proper distribution of property is determined, the proceeds in a checking account can simply be divided accordingly. Other property is far more challenging to divide. With complex property, there are often more complicated issues that need to be addressed such as tax ramifications, estate planning issues, etcetera. Our Chicago, IL family lawyers help people divide complex property and assets in Illinois.  It is important that your attorney know and advise you of the implications of dividing these types of complex property.  Examples of complex property that we can help you with include:

  • The family home; 
  • Other real estate holdings;
  • Tax advantaged retirement accounts; 
  • Pension benefits;
  • Business interest; 
  • Antiques and other family heirlooms; and
  • Assets with intangible value.
