Considerations in Marital Property Division
Division of marital property is not always 50/50. The court examines factors such as the length of the marriage, the amount of shared property, the size of the estate, the number of children and custody arrangements, the relative earnings or potential for earnings of both partners, spousal support considerations, and other factors to determine how property is divided.
Our Schaumburg property division attorney works directly with you to understand your situation and pursue the solution that fairly reflects your unique situation. Throughout the entire process, his goal is to help you set realistic expectations so you can make informed decisions that promote a better future for you and your family.
