A major part of any divorce revolves around the division of marital property and assets. Illinois is an equitable distribution state, which means that several factors are taken into consideration when making decisions related to a divorcing couple's property and assets.

This is particularly true in cases where one spouse attempts to hide assets.
While not a household name, John Sculley is the former CEO of Apple and is perhaps best known as the man who, in 1985, fired the late Steve Jobs from the company he would later go on to lead. After leaving Apple in 1993, Sculley went on to start a successful investment firm. More recently, Sculley has gained media attention for being the subject of a lawsuit filed by his ex-wife in which she accuses the millionaire of hiding assets during the couple's 2011 divorce.
