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.

This may help establish that an asset is actually solely-owned property that shouldn't be split in any way.
