Covering All Areas of Illinois Family Law

Our lawyers can assist you with any type of family law case or dispute, including:

  • Divorce: Most couples must address spousal support and asset division, which is covered by Illinois’ Dissolution and Legal Separation statute. The law requires that all marital property be distributed equitably between divorcing spouses, though this does not always mean an equal division of same.. Where appropriate, a court may enter an order for alimony to one spouse, in order to provide proper financial support.

If the parties can agree on property division and spousal support, the court will typically approve the arrangement. Any disputes may be resolved through a court hearing, but mediation is always an option that may offer significant benefits. 

  • Child Custody, Visitation, and Support: Instead of the traditional custody and visitation, Illinois uses the terms Allocation of Parental Responsibilities and parenting time. The law favors a shared parenting approach to making key decisions regarding the child’s upbringing, and to ensure that both parents are involving with raising him or her. The child’s best interests are the primary factor in making a determination.

Regardless of whether the parents are married, there are legal obligations to providing financial support for the child’s needs. The non-custodial or non-residential parent will pay child support in most situations.

  • Paternity: Both parents may have an interest in establishing paternity. A mother who was unmarried when the child was born must get a court ruling on paternity before being able to request child support. A father may seek paternity to ensure participation in the child’s life.
