The Division of Marital Property: Protecting Your Rights and Interests

During a marriage, most couples grow accustomed to sharing everything they own. They pool their finances to invest in property and other assets. When a marriage ends, all those assets must be divided.

Property division can be one of the most challenging elements of a divorce. Some people are concerned with the financial value of the items they are splitting, and other people are more focused on the items' sentimental value. Whatever attachment you have to your assets, it is important to work with a Libertyville property division attorney who can help you divide your property equitably.

What Property Will Be Divided During the Divorce?

During the divorce, all marital property will be divided. Marital property includes all property that was acquired during the marriage, other than gifts or inheritances given specifically to one person. It does not matter whose name is on the title of cars or homes; if it was acquired during the marriage, it is considered marital property.

In some situations, families have more than just their home and car to divide. If you run a family business or if you have a large or complex estate, we can work with you to make sure those assets are properly valuated. We work with experts who can accurately valuate businesses, intellectual property, stocks and real estate.
