We Handle Many Different Types of Family Law Cases

Our firm regularly assists clients in the 60605 zip code with many different types of family law cases. We recognize that each situation comes with its own set of facts and circumstances, and we tailor our strategy to your needs and goals. Some of the areas in which we represent family law clients include but are not limited to: 

  • Premarital Agreements: In Illinois, premarital agreements—or prenuptial agreements—are governed by the Illinois Uniform Premarital Agreement Act (750 ILCS 10/). Premarital agreements can benefit people in many different circumstances, especially when there are concerns about property division. Some couples choose to create a similar agreement after marriage, known as a postmarital or postnuptial agreement. Our team can help ensure that your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement will be enforceable in the event of divorce.
  • Divorce: Generally speaking, the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (750 ILCS 5/) governs most issues related to divorce in the 60605 area. Divorce can be a highly emotional experience, and having the guidance of a knowledgeable attorney is often vital to obtaining a positive outcome. For example, we regularly serve clients who need assistance with complex property division in a contentious high-asset divorce, as well as clients who need assistance negotiating and drafting a fair Marital Settlement Agreement. Even in an amicable or uncontested divorce, there are many different legal issues that can arise. Our family law attorneys in the 60605 zip code can answer any questions you might have about divorce.
  • Allocation of Parental Responsibilities: Illinois courts no longer use the term “child custody.” Instead, this concept is now known as the allocation of parental responsibilities, and it is determined through an allocation judgment. The allocation of parental responsibilities will include provisions for both decision-making responsibilities and parenting time. Courts make decisions about parental responsibilities based on what is in the child’s best interests, and your attorney can help you understand how these factors will impact your case.
  • Child Support: Illinois courts recognize that both parents have a financial obligation to provide for their children, which is addressed through child support orders. Child support is a monetary payment made by one parent to the other, and it may be awarded in cases of divorce involving minor children or in family law cases involving parents who were never married. While these awards generally follow a formula determined by the State of Illinois, an experienced attorney can help you determine how income should be calculated for purposes of child support and assist you in negotiating for a fair support award.
  • Paternity: If a child’s parents were never married, it may be necessary to legally establish paternity, or parentage, in order to determine the allocation of parental responsibilities and establish an order for child support. Our attorneys routinely assist in parentage cases.
