Compassionate And Insightful Family Law Guidance
Many relationships, even during the best of times, can be very complicated. Both parties have to commit to one another to make things work. In some situations, that commitment can become strained, leading to serious problems for everyone involved. If you find yourself in such a situation, you may want to know what rights you have if you are facing a divorce or custody battle.

A large portion of our practice is devoted to families in Illinois and Indiana who are struggling with these issues. Our attorneys collectively have over 40 years of experience finding solutions for our clients. We are focused on doing what is best for you. We have offices in Frankfort and Oak Lawn in Illinois.

Moving Through And Beyond Divorce
Divorce is a major life change in many dimensions. Besides the personal aspects of the breakdown of your marital relationship, there are practicalities to cope with, including financial matters. A divorce means you will be going from two incomes to one. You or your spouse may need spousal support. An experienced lawyer can watch out for your interests while this is negotiated or determined in court.
Divorce also means the distribution of assets. Marital property that you both owned will be reallocated to one of you. Property division will likely include cash assets, real estate, vehicles, investments, deferred compensation or bonuses, retirement accounts and more. Negotiations, mediation or litigation may determine the final result. Protect your future with a family law attorney’s help.
Custody And Support
If you and your spouse are going through a divorce and share minor children, a custody and support order will be a part of your divorce decree. If you and the other parent are not married, your custody and support order will be a standalone document. In either situation, a legal custody determination may mean that you get to spend less time with your children than what you are used to.
Dealing with change can be stressful and confusing for children. Disagreements and difficulties between parents who are separating often result in custody cases becoming extremely contentious.
We work hard to limit some of the anger and stress that accompany family law disputes. We aim to help you focus on arriving at workable solutions. If your partner or co-parent is not willing to cooperate, we will be ready to protect your interests before a judge and/or jury if necessary. We will present your concerns to the court and work tirelessly to help you obtain a result that allows you to meet or exceed your goals.
