Property Division

During the course of your marriage, you and your spouse accumulated property, assets and debts. Most marriages involve a marital home, a car or two, shared bank accounts and retirement accounts. For couples with a high net worth, the types of property and assets increase as does the value of the items.

At the law firm of Di Giacomo & Somers, L.L.C., our attorneys have extensive knowledge handling high net worth divorce for clients in and around Des Plaines and Chicago, Illinois. Many of our clients also come from Winnetka, Glenview, Lake Forest and Arlington Heights. Our attorneys have more than 60 years of combined legal experience and are skilled at litigation, collaboration and mediation. Call us at 847-784-8900 to schedule your free half-hour consultation.

How Is Marital Property Divided In Illinois?

Illinois is an equitable distribution state. This means that your property will not necessarily be divided 50-50. The court weighs factors set out in the law when considering the division of marital property such as each party's contribution to the marriage, the value of the property, the length of the marriage and the relevant economic circumstances.

It is important to have an attorney who understands not only divorce law, but also how to obtain a valuation of your assets. Specifically, valuing and dividing pensions, and other retirement assets, is complicated. Our attorneys have a substantial understanding in dividing complex and high-valued assets.
