Rolling Meadows Property and Financial Settlement Attorneys
Illinois is not a community property state for divorce settlements and judgments. That means that most property accumulated by the married couple, over the course of the marriage is subject to valuation and litigation as part of the final settlement.
When emotional arguments are allowed to take over the settlement negotiations, many couples find themselves in expensive litigation, even when they thought they had many of the property issues already worked out at their kitchen table. Having an experienced attorney to work through the settlement negotiations to seek fair resolutions that address your long-term needs will make a significant difference in the long-term outcome of your final settlement.

A Note About Marital Debt
Divorcing spouses often forget that debt accumulated over the course of the marriage is also considered a marital liability, subject to litigation in the final divorce settlement. The type and amount of debt can become a contentious issue, if one spouse denies knowledge or liability. Attorney Donald Cosley has significant experience focused on this area of marital property settlements.
In addition to property settlements during divorce representation, we can also help you with enforcement and contempt of divorce judgments.
