Dividing Property In A Divorce

 

In the midst of divorce, one of the most stressful decisions to be made is the agreement regarding which assets and properties will go to which spouse.

 

At Thomas W. Hunter, P.C., in Illinois, we work to navigate this process on behalf of our clients to achieve an equitable division in the least stressful manner possible. We are skilled in providing detailed guidance in the division of marital property and assets.

  • Bank accounts and investments

  • Real property

We are equipped to provide valuation services, assessing the value of property and business holdings. We will ensure that you are provided the marital property that you are entitled to throughout the asset distribution process.

 

Illinois Property Division Attorneys

 

In instances where significant amounts of debt are held between the two spouses, we are able to create a plan where that debt is equitably spread between the two. For couples also facing a potential bankruptcy, we can lend knowledgeable perspective into prudent timing of both actions.

 

The process of asset division is complicated when an individual violates his or her fiduciary duty. Our lawyers will carefully examine the records to determine when this has occurred and take the necessary actions to ensure that your interests are protected.
