Many people assume the only reason to hire an Orland Park family law attorney is for a divorce. However, family law encompasses much more than just a divorce, including child custody modifications, domestic violence, post-divorce judgment enforcement, spousal support modifications, and more. To learn more about how an attorney can help with all your legal needs, contact the Orland Park family law attorneys at Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd..
When a family court judge issues an order, parties are obligated to abide by it. However, courts also recognize that circumstances can change. Therefore, some situations will make it necessary to modify an existing court order. Getting the court to hear your request for modification is not always easy. The process can be complicated, especially because Illinois has strict guidelines on what qualifies for modifications. For example, Illinois courts will only agree to modify a child support case if the person applying for the change can prove they have undergone a significant change in circumstances.

Do not try to handle a modification to a family law order on your own. Instead, contact our experienced legal team for help navigating all the legal challenges.

If you are alleging domestic abuse and requesting an Order of Protection, we may be able to help get your request approved. A family court judge in Illinois could take any of the following steps:
To understand what rights you might have under an Order of Protection, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

This place is 1000% recommendable! So far the process has been super smooth and easy to deal with. They placed all my worries out the window and I've slept better knowing they are on my team. Currently in tears knowing I'll be able to resolve this but sad that it's never going to be the family I thought I could have had. It's ok though, it's time to move forward. Thanks DnD.
