How to tell if a spouse is hiding assets

Important aspects of property division

When you decide to get a divorce in Illinois, you realize you and your spouse will likely have to divide your belongings. However, this process can sometimes be more complicated than simply choosing what each of you wants. There are many factors that determine how you divide your marital property. At Lavin and Parisi, Attorneys at Law, we understand it is important for you to know as much as possible about this process.

What types of marital property are considered in a divorce?

Going through a divorce can be extremely emotional and overwhelming. One of the most difficult issues to tackle is that of property division. Separating marital property may seem like a daunting task, as it can be hard to part with things that you have collected throughout your marriage. Yet, it is important to understand everything that constitutes marital property so that you can receive everything you are entitled to in the divorce settlement.

Tips to combat common financial fears during divorce


For many Illinoisans, divorce is fraught with many emotions, one being fear; fear that they will not get a fair share of the property division, fear that they will end up with the "bad" assets, fear that they will have to make a substantial post-divorce lifestyle change. These fears are particularly salient for the so-called "out spouse," that is, the spouse less familiar with the couples' financial situation. But, like most fears, knowledge and preparation can do a lot to inoculate against the potential sting.
