In Illinois, are assets typically split 50/50 in divorce? How does that work?

The 50/50 is certainly a starting point, but there are a number of factors that the court is going to ultimately have to consider in dividing the marital estate. The ultimate division of marital property is to be done on an equitable basis. If 50-50 is taken as a starting point, there are then issues that the court has to take into account in making its determination in the allocation of that property.
