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. The formidable legal team at WARD FAMILY LAW has vast experience helping clients like you obtain favorable divorce terms, so please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information today.
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.
