Marital Versus Non-Marital Property in Kendall County

The first step in diving assets and property in a divorce is classifying which assets are marital property and which assets are non-marital property. In Illinois, most property that is acquired during the marriage is considered marital property. Some exceptions do exist, however, such as:

Illinois is an equitable distribution state, which means that all marital property is subject to an “equitable” division in a divorce. Assets do not have to be split 50-50, rather the court seeks a “fair” distribution considering numerous factors. Properly classifying martial property and non-marital property is essential as is obtaining a true value for all assets. Our attorneys work with financial experts to ensure all property is properly valued including:
