A family law firm must be many different things to its clients; it must be able to help with your divorce, but also with issues like parental responsibility allocation, criminal matters, and real estate that might appear at the same time. Our New Lenox family law firm has years of experience in handling all these types of cases, in addition to many others, and we will work hard to ensure that yours is handled as efficiently and compassionately as possible.
Our attorneys understand that a one-size-fits-all approach is not a good idea for something as complex and detailed as divorce, and we tailor our advocacy to what you need, rather than the reverse. A client should never be a number, and at our firm, your needs come first. For example, if a couple has extensive assets and debts to divide, that needs to be addressed before handling other financial matters such as spousal support (alimony) or child support.
Another way that our firm tries to put each individual client’s needs first is by extending our reach. While many other firms may restrict themselves solely to what goes on in a divorce courtroom, or at a mediation table, our firm does handle additional, more general services for our clients. Examples include helping with estate planning, with criminal law matters like filing for a protection order if necessary and handling real estate matters such as selling vacation property or title modification.
Something else that you need in a family law firm is the willingness to stand up, especially if your divorce is proving to be contentious. There are occasions when an angry or vengeful spouse may try to run roughshod over you and any rights you might try to assert against them; for example, if you executed a premarital agreement, your spouse might try to ignore it or get it declared void. You need an attorney who can spot this type of behavior, and call anything unethical or inappropriate out for what it is.
In addition, a quality New Lenox family law firm will be able to help you even after your divorce has been finalized. It is possible in Illinois to seek a modification of your divorce decree if you experience a substantial change in circumstances, or if you would simply like to seek modification if two years have since passed. Our firm is able to assist with those requests, and we will always keep your best interests at heart.
Filing for divorce is a big step in anyone’s life, and if you have decided to do so, you need experienced legal help to guide you through the process. The New Lenox family law firm of Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. was established to help those looking to divorce as efficiently and amicably as possible, and we are happy to try and assist you with your case.
