Going through a divorce is time-consuming and frustrating in a practical sense, but it can be demoralizing, as well. When you are in search of a divorce lawyer, you need someone who knows the law and who can also understand and appreciate that it can be a difficult and trying time psychologically. Our firm is designed to try and give our clients the best service possible so that you can focus on your family’s well-being instead of legal details.
There are so many issues to address during divorce proceedings that it can seem overwhelming to try and manage it all on your own. If you have children, support and parenting time must be agreed upon; spousal support may be an issue, as well as equitable division of marital property. Having an attorney on your side can help ensure that every I is dotted and every T is crossed; someone who is experienced in family law is better able to juggle these multiple issues, especially when you need to ensure that your family is taken care of.
Our firm has many years of experience with family law cases, including those that may have unique factors. Examples include:
Any or all of these situations, among others, can require specialized knowledge and/or experience with this area of law, and our firm has made a career out of catering to the details.
In addition to handling everything contained in a divorce proceeding such as allocation of parental responsibility and asset division, our firm also goes the extra mile and offers help with other legal issues that you may experience tangentially to your divorce. For example, Illinois law immediately voids any bequests or offices granted to your ex-spouse once your divorce decree is final; our firm can assist you with estate planning to rework or rewrite your will to ensure it adequately reflects your wishes.
Other examples of services extended to our divorce clients include the handling of real estate matters such as clearing titles, business and corporate-related matters that might be necessary to dissolve or manage a family business, and orders of protection that might be required in domestic violence-related matters. The average person has so much on his or her plate during a divorce that having a “one stop shop” makes is quick and simple to get advice. Our firm is here to help.
