PRACTICE AREAS WITHIN FAMILY LAW
We assist our clients from Cook, DuPage, and Lake Counties with several aspects of family law, including:
The divorce process is difficult for many people.
The divorce process, which begins when you start considering divorce and continues until a judge signs your final decree, is difficult for many people. However, we make it easier on our clients because we’re here to answer questions, develop strategies that get you the best possible outcome, and file the appropriate paperwork at the appropriate times to avoid delays and costly mistakes.
Some people are entitled to spousal maintenance.
Some people are entitled to spousal maintenance – commonly called alimony – in the state of Illinois. If your spouse is seeking maintenance, we can help you understand what factors go into a judge’s decision and ensure that the court receives full documentation from both sides that the maintenance called for is fair and reasonable.
It's a good idea to work together on child custody.
For most parents, it’s a good idea to work together on child custody. If you and your co-parent cannot agree, the judge assigned to your case will make decisions for you. While the judge will do his or her best to be fair, the fact remains that you know your family best. Regardless of whether you and your co-parent were married, we can help you do what’s best for your kids.
The best interest of the children should always be accounted for.
We can help you with child support issues that arise.
Both parents are required to provide financial support for their children in the state of Illinois. The state calculates basic support using a formula that accounts for both parents’ incomes. The amount of support increases based on the number of children involved. We can help you with child support issues that arise, whether you are the parent entitled to receive it or you are the parent paying it.
Post Decree Litigation
You may find that your agreements need to be modified.
Post Decree Litigation
Once the courts have granted your divorce, you may find that your spousal maintenance, child support, or even college contribution agreements need to be modified. This can happen for a variety of reasons, including changes in income, lifestyle, or other circumstances. We pride ourselves on helping our clients get the best possible outcomes in post-decree (after divorce) litigation.
With a significant amount of experience in high net worth divorce, custody and parenting time disputes, and child support disputes, we can help you move forward as quickly (and as painlessly) as possible.
