At Miller Law Offices, P.C., I am committed to providing trusted legal counsel for residents throughout Peoria who are filing for divorce. If you need assistance with a matter involving property division, I can use my knowledge and resources to help you obtain the outcome that is most favorable for your situation.
Property Division in Illinois
Illinois is an equitable division state, which means that spouses own the income that they earn during the marriage. It also means that each spouse has the right to manage any property that is in his or her name alone. At the time of divorce, however, the name on the property is not the only determining factor. Instead, the judge will divide the property in a manner that they consider to be fair, even if it is not necessarily equal.
I strive to help my clients obtain resolutions in a manner that is as amicable as possible; however, when the two parties are not able to agree on the terms of a property division agreement, I am prepared to litigate vigorously on my client’s behalf in court.
