Dissolution of A Long Term Marriage

Trusted Legal Representation By Our Will County Divorce Attorney

The breakup of a marriage is always devastating, particularly if the couple has been together a considerable amount of time. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C. we understand the various issues involved in these cases. Our Will County divorce attorneys know that in addition to the emotional fallout, there may be significant assets you worked your entire life to accumulate together. We provide the trusted legal representation you need in these types of cases, to help ensure your rights and interests are protected.  

Dividing Assets In An Illinois Divorce After A Long Term Marriage

Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes governing property division (750 ILCS 5/503), all property and assets accumulated by the spouses during the course of their marriage are to be identified and divided in a manner that is equitable to both parties. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., our Will County divorce attorneys can help to ensure that all marital property is included during this process, so that you get the maximum amount you are entitled to in your divorce settlement. Marital property may include any of the following:

  • Homes, timeshares, and country club memberships;
  • Furnishings, antiques, and artwork;
  • Cars and recreational vehicles;
  • Hobby, craft, and collectible items;
  • Shares in businesses and partnerships;
  • Financial accounts and stock holdings;
  • Pension and retirement benefits.

Long Term Marriages and The Potential For Alimony In Illinois Divorce Proceedings

If one of the spouses is unable to work, or makes significantly less than the other, spousal support may be ordered as part of your divorce settlement. In long term marriages, this often includes a percentage of any retirement or pension benefits.

At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C. we know how important these benefits are to ensuring your future financial security. Our Will County divorce attorney will work with you, both in identifying pension accounts and in obtaining court orders for either lump sum settlements or ongoing payments. Depending on the situation, you may be entitled to health care benefits paid by your spouse, as well as up to half of their Social Security benefits, provided you have been married at least ten years and have reached retirement age yourself.
