Marital property and divorce in Illinois

43131755_S (2).jpgWhen a couple gets divorced, marital property is usually subject to division between both parties. How it is divided depends on state law and other factors such as whether a couple has a prenuptial agreement. While married, individuals are encouraged to maintain complete records of how property was acquired and what was worth when acquired. This may help establish that an asset is actually solely-owned property that shouldn't be split in any way.

What to know about annulment in Illinois

54781187_S.jpgWhile they may sound similar in nature, there are key differences between an annulment and a divorce. An annulment occurs when a marriage is declared to be invalid. This means that the couple was never married, and any marriage contract that they may have had is null and void. It is important to note that a legal annulment is not the same as a religious annulment done by members of an individual's church.
