Joliet Property Division Attorney
Illinois is an equitable distribution state, which means that property division during the divorce process is held to a standard of basic fairness, not simply divided down the middle.
This makes property division in our state a less mechanical process, which in turn means that you want a lawyer who can make a strong case for division that is fair to you. With so much at stake — home, cars, investments, retirement savings, family business — you don’t want a beginner pleading your case.
What’s Yours, What’s Mine ∙ The Craft Of Asset Division
Property division is about property, “stuff,” but it goes beyond that. You are about to enter a new chapter in your life, and you want to enter it with confidence and many of the material things you will need. Property division affects other areas, too, such as child support and spousal support. Property division must often be balanced with these other obligations.
