One of the most contested aspects of any divorce in Illinois is property division. Under Illinois law, the division of assets should be fair and equitable. It does not mean that everything will be split down the middle, though. Some of your assets could be challenging to divide because they are considered hard-to-value. Examples could include investments, business ownership, rare assets, etc.
If you have children, it could also delay finalizing your divorce. Typically, both parents want to spend as much time as possible with their children, and they want to make the parenting decisions. However, if you cannot reach an agreement on your own, the judge will have to decide. The court’s main priority will be to determine what is in the best interest of your children, which may not be what either of you wants. If you cannot reach an agreement on child support payments, the court will also issue an award. The amount is subject to the legal guidelines and set forth by Illinois law.
