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.
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.
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:
