In re Marriage of Wendt

Bonus money comes up a lot in the divorces we handle in Bloomington Illinois. This recent case may affect future cases in McLean County Divorces.


In dissolution proceeding, court properly found that husband's bonus from his employer was not marital property. Bonus was speculative until actually awarded by the employer, and was not a contractually enforceable right, as it was issued at employer's discretion.
