Divorce can creep up on a marriage – or be thrust upon a marriage swiftly – but regardless of how it happens, divorce is a serious transition that requires careful attention. Unfortunately, the stress and upset that accompanies every divorce can make it difficult to stay focused on the concerns that matter most – you and your children’s best interests. Working closely with one of the best Chicago divorce lawyers, however, will help ensure you obtain divorce terms that work for you.
One of the most financially significant components of your divorce is the division of your marital property, and all of the following factors apply:
The just, fair and equitable division of marital property can become very complicated very quickly, and protecting your financial rights throughout is essential.
In addition to the financial elements of your divorce, you’ll need to face the issue of child custody arrangements, which is a primary concern of every divorce involving children. While the term “custody” is no longer used in Illinois, the new terminology is entry of an allocation judgment that addresses parenting time and decision-making. How much time each party has with the minor children is designated by his or her parenting time and is determined by many factors if not by agreement of the parties. Decision-making has four major components: religion, education, extra-curricular, and medical and can be made by one party or both parties.

Love and marriage. We needed a prenup because our families made us do one just to be safe. The entire thing was smooth so we could focus on our wedding and not be too crazy with the prenup. The agreement was drafted and reviewed by each of our attorneys, we signed and we were married. Woo Hoo. Thanks again, Ward Family Law.
10/10 is my rating for Ward Family Law. Jennifer and Emily went above and beyond in my divorce case. I cannot say more praise.
I lost my job but still had to pay the child support. I was scrambling. I talked to Jennifer Ward and she explained the process and the need to quickly file to put the court on notice that my child support needed to change. She saved me so much money in the long run while I looked for a new job so that I could start paying to help my kids again. Losing my job was not in the plan but at least my kids are on track.
