In Illinois, wealth and assets acquired during the course of marriage are subject to equitable division upon divorce. Equitable does not necessarily mean 50-50, but rather a division that is fair and just.
If you are getting divorced, The Law Office of Robbin D. Vanderwoude is here to protect your financial interests in property division proceedings. With more than 25 years of experience, we are prepared to handle divorces involving the division of complex marital estates. From our office in Libertyville, we represent clients in Lake County and surround areas.
Dividing Marital Assets In Divorce
Most property acquired during a marriage is subject to property division. There are exceptions which might include certain gifts, inheritances and civil lawsuit awards.
The division of certain assets, such as bank accounts and insurance policies, may be relatively straightforward. However, when assets such as real estate, businesses, professional practices, retirement plans and other financial accounts are being divided, the situation becomes more complex.
We enlist the services of appraisers, forensic accountants, business valuation experts and other professionals who help us navigate these complex, high-asset divorce matters. We protect our clients’ interests in the division of all types of marital property.
