There are highly personal concepts involved in the area of family law, injecting a considerable amount of emotion into such matters as divorce, care, and support for minor children, adoption, paternity, and similar areas.

Dedicated to All Illinois Family Law Matters

Because it is our core practice area, our attorneys possess the attention to detail necessary to address all cases under the family law umbrella. We can provide advice and counsel on:

  • Divorce Cases: The major issues involved with a divorce are asset division and alimony, and the law encourages couples to agree on these matters. However, the Illinois divorce statute will step in where compromise is not possible, requiring a court to divide marital property fairly between spouses.

Regarding spousal support, the goal is to achieve a balance between need and income. If one party sacrificed employment or other opportunities to care for children and run the household, a judge may order alimony to accommodate that person’s needs.

  • Custody and Support of Minor Children: Illinois law has replaced the concepts of custody and visitation in favor of a shared approach to raising children. The statute on Allocation of Parental Responsibilities and parenting time allows both parents to be involved with the child’s life, ensuring that the child’s best interests are taken into account for decisions on education, religion, extracurricular activities, and healthcare.

Both parents also have a legal obligation to support their children financially, so a noncustodial parent will be ordered to pay child support. The statute includes formulas for calculating the support amount, but this order can be modified when circumstances change.

  • Domestic Violence and Protective Orders: Like many states, Illinois protects victims of abuse and their families. It is possible to obtain emergency, temporary, or long-term orders of protection to ensure your safety.
