Palatine Property Division Lawyer
Experienced Illinois Division of Property Attorney Nicholas W. Richardson
Division of property often is the most contested issue in the divorce process. Prior to a division of property, the parties or Court must determine whether the property is marital or nonmarital under Illinois law. They must consider tax consequences related to the division of property; how to best accomplish their respective goals, whether liquid assets are more advantageous; options related to the disposition of the marital home; and how to best divide retirement assets and deferred compensation.
Do not assume that "equitable" in "equitable distribution" means "equal." It doesn't. You should have an experienced family law attorney advocating for you. A skilled legal professional looks at your division of marital assets and debts realistically, not sentimentally.
Nicholas W. Richardson brings 10+ years of service, a focus on clients and reputation for results that can help you. If an amicable property settlement can be negotiated, he will do it. If negotiations fail and litigation is necessary, he can aggressively safeguard your interests in Court. He "crunches the numbers" in ways that are fair to you and can investigate hidden assets belonging to a spouse who has not been forthcoming.
