Illinois Divorce Lawyers

Most of us are not planning to get divorced, but divorces happen more often than we might expect. When you decide to file for divorce, you will need to deal with all of the issues directly associated with divorce, such as property division, spousal maintenance, allocation of parental responsibilities, child support, and sometimes modifications. Most of these divorce issues fall under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA). However, divorce often results in other life changes, as well.

At Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd., our team of lawyers has experience helping Illinois families through all aspects of divorce, including real estate law, business law, and criminal law matters that can come along with life changes linked to the dissolution of marriage.

Learning More About Other Life Changes That Often Accompany Divorce

When we talk about other life changes that come with divorce in Illinois, what do we mean? Generally speaking, family law issues often extend into other areas of the law.

For example, when you file for divorce, you also may need to consider issues surrounding residential or commercial real estate that you own with your spouse, or matters related to the sale or division of a family business. In addition, divorce often means that you will need to redraft your will, and that you may need to revise your healthcare power of attorney and other important documents that typically are prepared by estate planning attorneys. Or, for example, you may need assistance modifying an allocation judgment after the child’s parent was arrested for a DUI or another crime through which that parent endangered the life of the child.

While we often think of family law as a limited area of the law, it is actually connected to many different legal issues, and our attorneys can help you through all of these aspects.

Types of Services We Provide to Clients in Illinois

At Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd., our dedicated team of attorneys regularly assists family law clients with a wide variety of legal matters in which we have experience, including but not limited to the following:

  • Residential and Commercial Real Estate: You may need help with the purchase or sale of property, revising leases and land trusts, handling evictions, or tax-deferred exchanges. Given that spouses often own property together, residential and commercial real estate issues often arise in a divorce proceeding.
  • Corporate Law: When spouses own a business together or property division requires the valuation and possible dissolution of a business, you will need assistance from a corporate law attorney. We handle many different business matters, including buying and selling businesses, as well as other issues related to corporations, LLCs, C corps, and S corps.
  • Estate Planning: Often estate planning needs to coincide with a divorce. Our firm handles wills and trusts, guardianships, and probate and decedent estates.
  • Criminal Law: Sometimes family law matters overlap with criminal law issues. Our team can assist with personal injury, traffic/DUI cases, misdemeanors, and felonies.
  • Personal Injury: Sometimes family members get injured on the job, or as a result of negligence due to a third party. Did you know that as a spouse you may have rights to a portion of the settlement proceeds? We handle all aspects of workman’s compensation and personal injury law and have attorneys available to assist you.
  • Guardianship: You may need help establishing a guardianship estate of a child who is now emancipated (over age 18) and in need of ongoing assistance; or someone may ask you to accept guardianship of a child while they go through various transitions in their life. Our firm can assist you in obtaining the necessary orders to act as a guardian in these matters.
