Experienced Lawyers Serving New Lenox, IL Family Law Clients

If you are facing any type of family law issue, you know there are multiple challenges and implications for your life. The laws on divorce, allocation of parental responsibilities, child support, adoption, and paternity are extremely complicated if you do not have a legal background. In addition, emotion can cloud judgment in matters that involve close personal relationships. You are at a disadvantage if you try to tackle these cases yourself, no matter how simple they may seem.

You do not have to face these challenges alone. At Demetrios N. Dalmares & Associates, Ltd., our attorneys have the skills to effectively represent you and the compassion to understand how family law matters hit close to home. We have been advocating on behalf of clients in Cook, Will, DuPage, and Kankakee Counties since 1992, taking a personalized approach to family law cases that involve very personal issues with loved ones.

Illinois Family Law Focus

Since our firm concentrates in family law, you know our attorneys have the in-depth knowledge and extensive experience necessary to protect your rights. We offer representation related to:

  • Dissolution of Marriage: While every case is different, many couples face some of the same issues in the divorce process. Illinois law encourages parties to agree on distribution of marital assets and spousal support but, where they cannot compromise, a court will enter an order that on property division. A judge may order alimony (now known as “maintenance”) where appropriate to assist one spouse, either temporarily during divorce proceedings or on a permanent basis. The statute contains formulas to calculate the proper amount.
  • Issues Regarding Minor Children: Illinois now refers to Allocation of Parental Responsibilities and parenting time, instead of the traditional notions of custody and visitation. Again, the law promotes agreement between parents and a shared approach to raising the child, alongside the child’s best interests standard.

Child support is an important issue, so Illinois law is tough on enforcement. There are multiple options to ensure a parent complies with his or her financial obligations, and the consequences for nonpayment are severe.

  • Paternity: Mothers and fathers both have an interest in establishing the legal paternity of a child, whether in the context of child support or to participate in the child’s upbringing. There are legal requirements depending on the circumstances, such as filing proper forms, DNA testing, and court proceedings.

Other Family Law Cases We Cover

Our firm also provides representation for:

  • Adoption;
  • Modifications of Spousal and Child Support;
  • Prenuptial Agreements; and,
  • Domestic Abuse.
