The property division process

Attorney Isaacson will start with research to account for all the property gathered during the marriage. The easy way to accomplish this is for both parties to voluntarily exchange information informally. The more aggressive, thorough way to account for the property is through formal discovery.

After all of the property is accounted for, attorney Isaacson will move on to categorizing the items into marital or non-marital property. Marital property was acquired during the marriage and non-marital property was owned prior to the marriage. There are various exceptions to those general categories, and attorney Isaacson is trained to make the proper distinctions.

Lastly, attorney Isaacson will value all of the property. Many assets are simple to assign values to, including:

  • Bank and brokerage accounts
  • Holdings of publicly traded securities
  • 401(k) and 403(b) accounts
  • IRAs

For assets that are more complicated to value, attorney Isaacson may suggest a trusted appraiser. You can trust attorney Isaacson to perform your property divisions accurately. Contact the law office today to discuss your case in Lake Forest, Highland Creek and Deerfield, IL.
