Dividing Property in Illinois

Two pairs of hands folded across a table with an agreement, car key fobs, keys, and pen between them.

Under Illinois property division laws, all marital property is to be divided equitably — or fairly — in the event of divorce. Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean equal. If there is no prenuptial agreement or negotiated marital separation agreement, the court will use many factors to determine the fair division of marital assets and debts.

As skilled attorneys, we have the capacity to provide effective legal advice and counsel in matters involving the division of property and marital debt, including:

  • Characterizing property as separate or marital assets
  • Examining non-marital property for potential co-mingled interests
  • Valuing business interests
  • Uncovering undisclosed or hidden assets
  • Dividing retirement plan benefits using a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO)
  • Negotiating property distributions in lieu of alimony, when relevant

What Property Can Be Divided in Divorce?

All marital assets — cars, real estate, personal property, bank accounts, IRAs or investment funds, and other property — are subject to distribution in Illinois divorce. However, non-marital property — separate inheritances, gifts, or separate property that was brought into the marriage — is not subject to distribution as long as it can be demonstrated that such property was kept separate throughout the marriage. However, appreciated value of non-marital property may be characterized as marital property.
