Illinois property division concerns

Whether you are afraid of losing a large portion of your assets in a marriage, or you are afraid of not getting your just due, there will be many factors to consider during the property division process of divorce proceedings. Indeed, due to the complex nature of the property division process, Illinois residents may wish to employ the services of a qualified and experienced family law attorney to help them understand and actively protect their rights during the process.

At the Goddard & Malmquist Attorneys & Counselors at Law, your first consultation is absolutely free. During this first meeting, we will ask you a series of questions to ascertain your current legal situation and give you suggestions on how to proceed. Illinois residents going through a divorce need to understand how their assets will be divided, which assets will be subjected to division and what they can do if their soon-to-be ex-spouse tries to take more than his or her fair share.

Illinois state law supports the legal principle known as equitable distribution in divorce proceedings. However, equitable distribution does not mean a half and half split. Indeed, numerous factors come into play when a family law judge decides a particular asset division matter. These factors only become more complicated when a divorce involves a high net worth couple. Other factors that can complicate matters include divorces that involve military pensions. Divorces that involve Qualified Illinois Domestic Relations Orders may also be more complicated than average.

Whether your property division matter is simple or complicated, it is important to know where you stand in these proceedings. Goddard & Malmquist Attorneys & Counselors at Law is here to help. Contact us to discuss your situation and needs, and we will be happy to tell you what options are available for your next steps.
