Division of Property

Illinois is an equitable distribution state. As such, in a divorce, all the marital property of the spouses is divided equitably, though not necessarily "equally".

Marital property typically includes the spouses' estate and assets acquired during the marriage.

Separate property, which includes property acquired by either spouse before the marriage, or personal gifts and inheritances received by either spouse during the marriage, is not subject to division.

The spouses can come up with a plan for the division of the property in their Settlement agreement. If they fail to do it, the court decides at its own discretion, considering the following factors:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The age and health of each spouse
  • The financial condition of each spouse
  • Custodial arrangement if any
  • Each spouse's occupation, employability, and earning power
  • The separate property of each spouse
  • Each party's needs and liabilities
  • Each party's contributions to the acquisition and increased value of the marital property
  • Any other factors of equity

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Illinois-based company. So that's why I used OnlineIllinoisDivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found onlineillinoisdivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
