A divorce is one of the most stressful life events that a person can experience. If you and your spouse have decided to go your separate ways, you need the help of a Minooka divorce lawyer who has seen it all. Our firm understands just how high the stakes are, especially if there are children involved in your split, and will work hard to ensure that the process is as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
Too often, a divorce attorney sees his or her job as being between the lines, so to speak – they help only with divorce, without considering that a thousand different issues and changes pop up during the process that may not specifically be required to be dealt with in a divorce decree. Questions about changing your will, making changes to titles or other real estate documents, or seeking an order of protection against a dangerous spouse all may come up during the divorce proceedings, but many attorneys expect their clients to manage these issues on their own.
Our firm is able to assist you with these types of issues, as well as all of the questions that will come up in a divorce proceeding itself, such as parental responsibility, spousal support, and simple or complex marital asset division. All of these issues can be straightforward, or they can become quite complex, depending on the specific facts of your case, and you need an attorney on your side who can handle anything that will come your way.
It can be tempting to try and manage your divorce yourself, especially if you and your spouse have no kids and few assets. However, divorce proceedings are almost always more drawn-out than the average person thinks they will be. This is especially true if you and your spouse are not in a position to negotiate on the issues – if you have a more hostile relationship, a good attorney is invaluable since he or she can speak for you and help to work out a more fair division of assets and parenting time.
In addition, our firm is not afraid to stand up and help you protect yourself if necessary. Most divorces are civil, if not amicable, but if your divorce turns ugly, it is critical to have an attorney who is able to handle matters effectively. A Minooka divorce lawyer from our firm will help you obtain a protective order if necessary, as well as arguing on behalf of your children in court to ensure that their rights are protected. Illinois family law is designed to protect the best interests of the child or children involved, even above the interests of the parents if it comes to that.
An experienced Minooka divorce lawyer from the firm of Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. can help guide you through the process of divorce, so you can focus on moving on with your life. We are happy to try and assist you with your case. Contact our offices today for a free consultation.
