During divorce in Illinois, and depending on the particular circumstances, artwork may be classified as marital property or non-marital property. If the artwork is classified as marital property, then the artwork is subject to equitable division between the divorcing spouses. Please note that in high net worth divorce cases, art collections may be a large portion of the parties' marital estate.

Throughout the discovery process in an Illinois divorce case, both parties must make a full and complete disclosure of all assets and properties, including artwork, in which each party has any interest.
