Is a pension plan subject to property division in Illinois?

Many couples in Illinois start planning their retirement early on in their marriage. As such, retirement plans and other related assets may be the most significant ones that couples must divide as they go through the property division process of a divorce. Because pensions and other retirement plans acquired during marriage are typically considered marital property, they are likely subject to equitable distribution.

Child support considerations in Illinois

The end of a marriage is often a difficult process. Couples must make a variety of important decisions regarding how to divide their assets, among other issues. If there are children involved, there are even more considerations that must be made.

Can I get retirement benefits in a military divorce?

Military members and their loved ones deal with many different challenges. Frequent moves are rarely easy, and time spent apart during deployments can make it hard to maintain closeness in a marriage. Whether this was your experience, or you dealt with other issues, filing for divorce was the best choice you could make in your situation. However, you may have questions about how certain things work during a military divorce.

The facts about alimony in Illinois

When people in Illinois plan for the future, they often base their plans on their current situation. For example, a parent may choose to stay home with children, rather than furthering his or her career, based on the fact that he or she is currently financially secure as a result of income from a spouse. However, a divorce often requires a reshuffling of financial plans. For many, alimony may need to be paid to help during the transition.
