Protecting Your Finances in Divorce


A Divorce Shouldn't Break the Bank

Finances are a key concern for anyone entering into divorce. At Johnson, Johnson, & Nolan, Attorneys at Law, our attorneys can protect your financial interests in a broad range of financial issues, including property division, spousal maintenance, child support and more. We are trusted divorce law advocates for clients in Belleville and throughout the surrounding Illinois communities.

Negotiate From Strength

When disputes arise over finances, it is important to operate from a position of strength. Our thorough, detail-oriented approach gives us leverage at the negotiating table. This helps us ensure a swift and efficient resolution of disputes over property division, spousal maintenance, and other financial issues that arise in a divorce. While we strive to resolve legal disputes amicably and out of court, we are always prepared for aggressive litigation when necessary.

Don’t Forget About Debt

While you want to receive your fair share of marital property, you also want to make sure you don’t take on more marital debt than is rightfully yours. Credit card debt, mortgages, vehicle loans — all kinds of debt are subject to equitable division upon divorce. Generally, the sooner you separate yourself from joint bank accounts and credit cards, the better.

Stay Practical

You don’t want to spend $20,000 fighting over a $1000 piece of property. Although this seems obvious, common sense does not always prevail in a contentious divorce. This is why it is important to obtain practical advice from a knowledgeable divorce lawyer. We will always keep your best interests in mind, guiding you to the most favorable, cost-effective resolution possible under the circumstances.
