The court will divide the marital property between the parties. Marital property generally includes any assets acquired by either spouse during the marriage, regardless of whose name is on the title or account.
In Illinois, the court will divide marital property equitably, which means that it will be divided fairly but not necessarily equally. The court will consider various factors such as the length of the marriage, each party’s contribution to the acquisition of the property, the value of the property, the financial resources of each party, and any other relevant factors to determine how the property will be divided.
It is essential to work with an experienced attorney who can help you protect your interests and ensure that your property is divided fairly in a contentious divorce case.
