Our Arlington Heights Family Law Practice Areas
As you navigate the complex world of family law, please reach out to our law firm for support and guidance. We work on a variety of family law cases, including the following:
- Divorce. When a couple decides to dissolve their marriage, there are many other issues that they’ll need to decide, too, including how property will be divided, where the children will live, whether or not alimony will be part of the divorce settlement, and more. We can advise on all of the above.
- Child custody. Who will have custody of a child is typically one of the most contentious issues in a divorce case. We can help you to understand the laws surrounding child custody in our state, and what you’ll need to show the court in order to get custody of your child.
- Child support. Both parents are required to provide for their child financially in Illinois. If you are the noncustodial parent, you will be expected by the court to make support payments on a regular basis. Illinois uses the income shares model to determine each parent’s support obligation.
- Legal separation. Sometimes, a couple wants to take time apart, but does not want to officially divorce. If this is the case, it may be in your interest to seek a legal separation agreement. Reach out to our team to learn more about the key differences between divorce vs. legal separation and which might be more appropriate for you.
- Spousal maintenance. If one spouse was financially dependent on the other throughout the course of the marriage, then they may be entitled to spousal support payments once the marriage ends. Reach out to our team to learn more about these payments and when they are appropriate.
- Mediation. Before your family law matter makes its way before a judge, you may be ordered to participate in mediation (even if you are not ordered to mediate your case, doing so is strongly recommended). Our lawyers provide mediation representation and can help you to reach an agreement that is favorable and fair.
- Appeals. If a family law order has been issued by a court and you disagree with the decision, we can represent you in appealing the decision or seeking a modification, depending on which course of action is most appropriate.
