Family Law Attorneys Palos Heights

If you are dealing with a family law issue, you know you are facing multiple challenges. The laws regarding divorce, custody and support of minor children, paternity, and adoption are highly complex. Plus, there is a lot at stake emotionally when you factor in the personal relationships involved with family law cases. Under the circumstances, you are at a disadvantage if you try to represent yourself.

Our attorneys at Demetrios N. Dalmares & Associates, Ltd. have the skills to effectively represent you and find a solution for your family law issues. We have been advocating on behalf of clients in Cook, Will, DuPage, and Kankakee Counties since 1992, from the most basic cases to extremely complex disputes. Family law matters are very personal, so we take a personalized approach to meeting your legal needs.

Illinois Family Law is Our Focus

Unlike other firms that cover a range of legal services, we concentrate on family law issues. Our lawyers handle:

  • Dissolution of Marriage Cases: Divorce is commonly portrayed as a bitter, acrimonious process, but there are ways to reduce the hostilities. Illinois law encourages parties to agree on such matters as division of marital assets and spousal support, and mediation can move the proceedings along in a way that benefits both individuals. If agreement is not possible, the statute requires a fair distribution of property and includes formulas on calculating appropriate spousal support.
  • Allocation of Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time: Illinois encourages a shared parenting approach to custody and visitation for minor children, addressing significant decision making and parenting time under the Allocation of Parental Responsibilities law. Again, an agreement is the preferred route for making key decisions, and working out a parenting time schedule.

If it becomes necessary for a court to become involved, the child’s best interests are the paramount consideration in determining education, healthcare, religion, and extracurricular activities.

  • Child Support: Regardless of whether a child’s parents were married at birth, there are still financial obligations for support. Illinois law covers the details of how child support is calculated, and it is first necessary to establish paternity before a parent can enforce a child support order. For the paying parent, there are significant penalties for noncompliance, but it may be possible to modify a child support order for a change in circumstances.
