The advocates at our firm can begin working with you on your divorce case to ensure that your rights are protected.
Under the IMDMA, all property owned by the spouses will need to be classified as marital or separate property. Marital property is divided in a divorce while separate property is not. Generally speaking, separate property includes all assets and debts acquired before the date of the marriage, as well as inheritances or third-party gifts acquired after the date of the marriage. Otherwise, most assets and debts acquired or accumulated after the marriage will be classified as marital property and will be divided according to the terms of equitable distribution.
In any Chicago divorce where the spouses share minor children from the marriage, the divorce process will also include the allocation of parental responsibilities (previously known as child custody under Illinois law) and child support. Our firm can assist you with any child custody or child support matters in your Chicago divorce.
