If you’re staring down a divorce, it’s difficult to know how best to proceed. Every divorce follows its own unique course, involves its own unique variables, and encounters its own unique challenges. Nevertheless, one important constant among all divorces is that every client does himself or herself a favor by working closely with an experienced Chicago divorce lawyer.
When it comes to divorce, the basic terms tend to sort out into financial matters and child custody arrangements. The financial terms will guide you and your children’s financial future, and they include:
Child custody arrangements are obviously a primary concern in every marriage that involves children. Illinois addresses both legal custody (who makes the important decisions that guide the children’s lives) and residential custody (whom the children live with and when). Both forms of custody can be either joint (shared by both parents) or sole (taken on by one parent alone).
The outcome of your divorce will play a significant role in your future, and that’s why you need a dedicated Chicago divorce lawyer in your corner.

Initially, I'd thought to navigate through troubled waters on my own in the divorce process due to the cost. I hadn't before needed representation in any court case, and, not being familiar with the costs involved in having a lawyer, I was worried about moving forward with one. My fear was the expense. I felt comfortable with Jennifer Ward from the moment I first spoke with her - contacting her to set up a consultation costs you nothing. In the end, the retainer and fees spent to end my case on a high note were worth every penny. They sent…
