It can be a challenge for divorcing couples in Illinois to divide their assets during their divorce settlement. Certain assets can be divided down the middle. Others, such as houses, automobiles, and properties, may not provide this option. On paper, selling assets and then splitting the proceeds 50-50 seems to be the best idea. However, there are circumstances, including personal attachments to items and family responsibilities, that may not make a 50-50 split right for some.
