Dividing property in a divorce is more complex than it may seem. First, careful study and research is necessary to be sure that all property is accounted for. Second, the property needs to be categorized as either marital or non-marital. Finally, the property must be valued and then divided. Dividing property does not necessarily mean an equal division. Illinois law provides a number of criteria for people and courts to consider to determine what division of property is equitable. Schiller DuCanto & Fleck LLP attorneys regularly deal with complex financial cases and are well trained to find, categorize, value and achieve satisfactory divisions of the property for clients.
