Introduction
Any assets, funds, or obligations obtained throughout a
marriage are deemed marital property in an Illinois
divorce & have to be split equally among the husband
and wife. There are a few factors to consider, though, if
you're worried about keeping certain possessions
separate or shielding assets from being divided during a
divorce. You can also consider getting help from divorce
financial settlement lawyers.

How to Keep Your Property Safe
during a Divorce
Preparing a prenuptial agreement before getting married
is the first step towards ensuring that certain belongings
remain distinct and shielded from turning into part of the
marital estate that has to be shared. You can decide what
assets, income, and obligations stay your separate
possessions after marriage and afterwards by signing a
prenuptial agreement with your fiancé before you tie the
knot
Prenuptial Agreements Protect Your Assets
A prenuptial agreement provides the ideal approach to
maintain the ownership of any bank accounts, savings
accounts, or real estate which were in your name
before the marriage. Pre-nuptial agreements may also
include provisions regarding what constitutes
maintenance and/or support for spouses in the case of
a divorce. If you and your spouse reach an
understanding before marriage, signing a prenuptial
agreement may speed up the divorce process and
eliminate the need for court cases.
Using A Post-Nuptial Agreement To Protect
Assets
You might continue to have options if you have been
wed and lost the opportunity to write a pre-nuptial
contract.

How To Protect Property and Other Assets During Divorce.pdf

  • 1. During Divorce How To Protect SPECIAL OFFER Property and Other Assets CONTACT 0161 491 8520 www.nayyarssolicitors.co.uk
  • 2. Introduction Any assets, funds, or obligations obtained throughout a marriage are deemed marital property in an Illinois divorce & have to be split equally among the husband and wife. There are a few factors to consider, though, if you're worried about keeping certain possessions separate or shielding assets from being divided during a divorce. You can also consider getting help from divorce financial settlement lawyers.
  • 4. How to Keep Your Property Safe during a Divorce Preparing a prenuptial agreement before getting married is the first step towards ensuring that certain belongings remain distinct and shielded from turning into part of the marital estate that has to be shared. You can decide what assets, income, and obligations stay your separate possessions after marriage and afterwards by signing a prenuptial agreement with your fiancé before you tie the knot Prenuptial Agreements Protect Your Assets
  • 5. A prenuptial agreement provides the ideal approach to maintain the ownership of any bank accounts, savings accounts, or real estate which were in your name before the marriage. Pre-nuptial agreements may also include provisions regarding what constitutes maintenance and/or support for spouses in the case of a divorce. If you and your spouse reach an understanding before marriage, signing a prenuptial agreement may speed up the divorce process and eliminate the need for court cases. Using A Post-Nuptial Agreement To Protect Assets You might continue to have options if you have been wed and lost the opportunity to write a pre-nuptial contract.
  • 7. To preserve distinct interests in the unlikely scenario of a divorce, a post-nuptial agreement may also be signed. Formally and substantively, a post-nuptial arrangement is identical to a pre-nuptial agreement; it is just signed after the marriage date. You are still able to make sure that distinct accounts, income, & any additional assets specified in the post-nuptial contract are maintained separately even if you and your spouse decide to engage in this arrangement. The terms of your post-nuptial contract may also address what, if anything, would be given in the event of a divorce and spousal support or upkeep.
  • 8. In case a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement isn't feasible for you, you still have a few additional choices to safeguard certain assets in the scenario of a divorce. Let's say, following Illinois law, you inherit money after or even before your marriage. If that's the case, as long as you maintain the inheritance money or property entirely in your name, it is your independent property that cannot be shared in a divorce. Avoid putting the money or assets in your spouse's name since doing so makes them marital property, which can't be reverted to pre-marriage or non-marital status. Only Use Your Name on Accounts
  • 10. Start closing any credit cards that are jointly owned by you and your spouse and divide the repayment amount between you. If you currently hold credit cards in your name, begin to utilise them exclusively. Otherwise, open cards in your name. By doing this, it becomes simple to identify and assign marital debts, as well as to assign individual obligations to the responsible party. Shut Down Combined Credit Cards Make A Marital Property Inventory Make an inventory of everything in the marital home which needs to be divided and take photos of the stuff which is part of the marriage. Take photographs of all the items and make an inventory of everything in the house, garage, and storage areas to make sure your spouse doesn't take anything away.
  • 12. If you wish to maintain any assets or accounts you had before getting married that are only in your name as well, don't change the names or titles on them. This will continue to keep them private and safe from being divided. Additionally, avoid funding these pre-marriage accounts with married funds. You can safeguard your possessions in a divorce by maintaining your already- separate property apart from any married and jointly owned accounts because they will continue to be regarded as your non-marital or pre-marital property. Final Words
