From the time that you begin the divorce process until the time when the final judgment is entered, you are under an immense amount of strain. This is true even if your divorce is amicable and straightforward. The stress increases when you are forced to deal with legal issues and matters of dispute between you and the other spouse. This is when you need to come to the table with the best divorce law firm in Chicago.
You may be wondering what makes the difference when considering the best divorce law firm in Chicago to represent your case. Here are a few things that we do that sets us apart from many other attorneys:
When considering a divorce attorney, you should not just focus on a lawyer who promises tough and gloves-off litigation. Of course, we provide that to our clients if it is necessary. First, you need an attorney who is capable of guiding you through the settlement and negotiation process. Most divorce cases do not go to court, so you want to explore all pathways to resolving your dispute before you file the case. This requires a pragmatic attorney who can move roadblocks out of the way and suggest methods of resolving impasses. Sometimes, the best legal outcome results from continuing to negotiate.
You have compelling reasons to keep your divorce as amicable as possible. These reasons are multiplied when there are children in the picture. We recognize that compromise and negotiation do not always lead to a settlement. While we can help you with various forms of alternative dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration, we can also fight for you in court.
Our attorneys focus entirely on family law, so we understand the challenges that you are facing on a daily basis. When things may seem like they are coming apart around you, we provide a reassuring presence. We make sure to thoroughly explain the law and all of your options to you when providing you with level-headed advice. The most important thing in a divorce case is to have an attorney who is available to you.

It was quick and easy and those are two words I did not think I would say about my divorce. We are still friendly too. We just were not meant to be together anymore. Ward Family Law made sure to draft the documents with the terms that we agreed on which kept us on good terms and there was no fighting. I cannot recommend them enough if you are looking for a clean, honest, quick, easy divorce.
We were set to get married in a little over a month and my family insisted on a premarital agreement. On my very first call Jennifer explained the entire process and timing. They hit the ground running and got everything completed and signed well before our wedding date. That made everything much less stressful so I thank them so much for their professionalism and timeliness.
Our plan was to get married after the baby was born and then a year later we still were not married and we were going our separate ways. I had no idea that the birth certificate alone did not make me the legal parent of our baby in Illinois. Luckily, Ward Family Law handles these cases and established paternity through a DNA test and submitted the results to the court. We now have an agreement on time with our kids and support too.
