Divorce is one of the most stressful life events that a person can experience, even if you and your spouse are able to work things out amicably. It is still crucial to enlist a divorce attorney in New Lenox so that you and your spouse can be certain that all of the details and the various aspects and issues will be managed properly. A divorce is never one single proceeding, with rare exceptions; multiple smaller legal matters are contained under that umbrella, and you need an attorney who can handle anything that gets thrown your way.
Depending on your family situation, there are many different matters that need to be handled when finalizing a divorce. Everything from child support to allocation of parental responsibility, to spousal maintenance and asset division, must be worked out between the spouses or with assistance such as from a mediator, or the divorce cannot be finalized. Very often, even the most civil spouses will disagree enough where they cannot come to an accord when it comes to divorce; the stakes are simply too high for many spouses to concede certain issues.
In recent years, it has become even more important to consult with a divorce attorney in New Lenox, because the legislature has made changes to the state’s family law, more particularly to spousal and child support determinations, of which the average person may simply not be aware. Illinois is now an ‘income shares model’ state, meaning that the gross income and parenting time for both parents/spouses will be taken into account, where only the noncustodial parent’s income was taken into account previously.
In addition to assisting you with the core divorce issues like spousal maintenance and allocation of parental responsibilities, a divorce attorney in New Lenox should be able to handle any issues that may crop up when managing your affairs. Our firm makes a point of handling general services for divorce clients because requiring people to find yet another attorney is a lot to ask of a person with so much on their proverbial plate already.
