Representation of Parties in Divorce Relating to An Internal Revenue Service Investigation and Client Agreements
There should be an (A) engagement letter and (B) separate written contract with each representation of each client in a criminal investigation case. The written contract should clearly identify the scope of the representation individually, what is or is not being included, and circumstances in regard to which an attorney can withdraw and terms and conditions of fee arrangements. The engagement letter should be comprehensive based on what the client told the attorney. Further, at some point the initial engagement letter should be approved and initialed by the client because that letter forms a basis for the attorney proceeding with rendering legal services and the engagement letter can identify facts, agreed to by the client, in regard to what the client told the attorney, and with respect to which the attorney relied in moving forward with the engagement.
In dividing property, the Illinois court considers all relevant factors including the contribution of each party to the value of the property, particularly the contribution of a spouse as a homemaker, the value of the property distributed to each spouse, the length of the marriage, the financial situation of each spouse when the property is divided, (such as the need to give the family home to the spouse who has custody of the children), any obligations and rights arising from a prior marriage of either party, the age, health, station, occupation, income, vocational skills, employability, estate, liabilities, and needs of each of the parties, the custody of any children, and the reasonable opportunity of each spouse for future acquisition of capital assets and income.
