Property Division in Evanston, Illinois

The law can be murky and confusing at times, and when you are uncertain how to protect yourself or don’t understand the law completely, it is a great idea to seek qualified help. Property division laws that arise from divorce can be cumbersome, and it might not always be easy to understand how the courts decide to divide the property. To get accountable and qualified assistance, consider M. Scott Gordon & Associates. They are qualified divorce and family law attorneys that serve clients with property division problems in Evanston, Illinois and the greater Chicago area.

Property Types

The property that needs to be divided comes in two forms: marital and non-marital property. There is a myriad of rules and exceptions that govern what constitutes marital property, and M. Scott Gordon & Associates have years of experience to guide you safely through the process.

Basically, understand that “marital property” is property that was gained during the marriage. While this may seem simple on the surface, there are exceptions not only to how the property type is determined, but also additional rules on how the property is distributed. It is not always as simple as dividing something in half. Our courts need to use “equitable distribution.” If you don’t know all the details of property division, don’t worry. We are here to help you.
