Marital Property Law
At Bradshaw Law, we have extensive experience counseling clients on the distribution of marital estates in Peoria and throughout Central Illinois. Marital property distribution in the state of Illinois follows the equitable distribution process. While it’s common in community property states for a 50-50 split, that’s not the goal. Rather, the court seeks to arrive at a distribution of assets and debt that it views as fair. Opposing parties in a divorce will typically have very different opinions of what is just, so there can be a great deal of argument. The more wealth you’ve accumulated, the greater the chance for error and the danger that the process will yield an unfair result. We’ll work hard on your behalf and give you the representation you need to succeed.
