Family Law Attorney by Me 

Family legal matters are rarely, if ever, easy to deal with. Most family law issues are either divorce, paternity or post-decree.  The more specific issues that fall within this area of law can involve splitting time with a child between two parents, dividing bank accounts, shared assets, debts, cars, and possessions, maintenance or determining support amounts. No matter the outcome, it seems as if someone always loses. While it may feel as if you are losing your battle—after all, no one wants to give up time with a child or pay a former spouse for caring for that child—our family law attorneys can help lessen the pain of what you are going through by fighting for a favorable outcome on your behalf. If you want to walk away from your family legal matters feeling happy with the outcome and your future, reach out to the team at WARD FAMILY LAW, LLC to discuss your case today.

Practice Areas

At WARD FAMILY LAW, LLC, our attorneys are well-versed in a number of complex family legal matters. Clients have trusted us with their paternity cases, divorce, allocation of parental responsibility, child support, maintenance, allocation of assets/debts, and divorce decree modifications for many years, and now you can trust us, as well. Whether you are about to embark on a divorce and need help drafting a fair and favorable decree, are in the midst of a contentious divorce and need help fighting for your rights, or are post-divorce and would like to modify existing orders, you can count on our team to assist you at all stages. Some areas in which we practice include:

  • Divorce: Whether you plan on pursuing a simple divorce or know that your divorce is bound to be complex, you can benefit from having an experienced attorney on your side. The right lawyer can help you review the proposed terms of your divorce and ensure fairness across the board.
  • Parental Responsibilities: Formerly known as child custody, parental responsibility is undoubtedly bound to be the most contentious aspect of your separation. Fight for maximum rights to your child by working with an aggressive and knowledgeable family law attorney.  Parental responsibilities include both parenting time and decision-making rights.
  • Support Orders: In Illinois, it is possible to distribute both spousal support (known as maintenance) and child support in divorce cases. Though support is determined using a set formula, your attorney can ensure that both child support and spousal maintenance are set at a fair and reasonable rate.
  • Post-Divorce Modifications: Life is bound to change post-divorce. Make sure you are prepared to deal with those changes by having a family law attorney on retainer who can help you navigate those changes and draft amendments to existing documents to reflect those changes.  Some typical matters include QDRO finalization or enforcement, retirement allocations, college expenses, relocation of a parent, and so much more.
