Divorce in Kane County
The decision to dissolve your marriage is one that is life-changing. As such, it is not a matter to be taken lightly. When you and your spouse have children, the challenges are even greater. A qualified, compassionate attorney can help you resolve your concerns in divorce rationally and in a manner that keeps contentiousness and costs to a minimum.
The state of Illinois provides very clear guidelines regarding child support obligations for unmarried, separated, and divorced parents. The courts have also made enforcement of child support responsibilities a top priority. Whether you are supposed to be receiving support payments or making them, an experienced child support lawyer who knows the law can be a valuable asset.
Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time
Previously known in Illinois as child custody and visitation (allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time, respectively) are crucial considerations for any parents experiencing a divorce. Our knowledgeable family lawyers can help you and the other parent reach an agreement that promotes your child's best interests. If a negotiated agreement is not possible, the court will make determinations for you and your children.
While most people recognize marriage as a romantic commitment between two adults, few realize that it is a binding legal contract as well. Prior to getting married, prospective spouses should consult with a skilled family law attorney to learn more about their rights and responsibilities, as well as the appropriateness of prenuptial agreements.
Adoption in Illinois
Expanding your family through the process of adoption can be a very rewarding experience, despite the inherent challenges. In Illinois, court approval is always required to complete an adoption, and an experienced family law attorney can help you with adoptions of all types.
