Illinois is a non-community property state. This means that any marital property, including debt, is part of an equitable distribution process. This does not mean equal, but what is fair and just according to your specific circumstance. Marital property generally includes any assets, debts or liabilities acquired during the marriage.
Sometimes, even if debt was only acquired by one party or under one party's name, it can still be considered marital debt. Debt that is examined in the debt division process includes:
- Credit card debt and personal loans
- Mortgages and home equity loans
- Unsecured loans
- Small business debt
- Tax obligations
Once it is determined what constitutes marital debt, it is divided between the parties. If the parties come to an agreement, it is more likely the court's order will be influenced by it. That is why you need an experienced marital debt attorney to properly negotiate your division of marital debt.
