Property Division Lawyers For Chicago And Cook County
In a divorce, there are many financial items that must be taken into consideration. Property division is oftentimes the most contested issue in a divorce. Each spouse has contributed in some way to the family’s finances. Some may have been primary breadwinners. Others may have provided emotional support and stayed home with the children.
Regardless of how you contributed to the marriage and the family home, you want your contribution and your investment to be recognized.
If you have decided to divorce in Chicago or Cook County, you need experienced representation so that your financial investment in your marriage can be protected.

A Thorough Assessment Of Your Assets
We investigate your finances individually and as a couple, access the services of forensic accountants who take a careful look into the possibility of hidden assets, and work hard to mediate, negotiate or litigate resolutions you can live with when any combinations of these holdings are at stake during your Illinois divorce:
- Real estate — primary, vacation and retirement residences, rental properties, and undeveloped land
- Deferred income
- Retirement income
- Stocks, stock options and bonds
- Bank accounts
- Collectibles and memberships
In many instances, it takes years and years — if not decades — for a married couple to accumulate property and assets.
