DuPage County family law attorney, spouse is hiding assetsThe divorce process is a daunting experience for all parties involved. The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act provides several guidelines for families to follow, including the distribution of property or assets, to ease the stress of the situation. 

However, the process becomes more difficult when you know your spouse is intentionally hiding assets. Illinois law mandates that marital property be distributed evenly between both parties to the divorce. This includes property or bank accounts acquired after marriage.
