What is your separate property in an Illinois divorce?

One of the most confusing things for many people facing divorce is making sense of how the courts in Illinois divide assets between spouses. Illinois uses the equitable division standard for marital assets. The courts will do everything in their power to ensure that the split is fair. The courts will weigh your personal and financial situations and determine the best way to split your marital assets.

Even a non-working spouse has a claim to the pension in divorce

Couples facing divorce in Illinois frequently have to sort out disagreements about how to fairly split up their possessions. It is relatively common for disagreements to occur about who owns what and what assets and debts are marital property. The more valuable the asset in question, the more likely spouses are to argue over who will retain it.
