Elmhurst Lawyers Skilled in Divorce and Family Law Matters

Collaborative Law Attorneys Serving Chicago, DuPage County, and Lake County

Without a doubt, one of the more emotionally troubling and challenging events encountered in life include divorce and the related family law issues that ensue. The process of divorce, and its aftermath, bring a myriad of reactions and emotions. Each divorce is different; each one unique. Divorce can be “uncontested,” representing a mutual chance for a new beginning for both parties. For others, divorce can be quite “contested;” a heart-breaking end to a union both parties expected to last forever, and wrought with strife and suspicion. When children are involved, emotions and disputes may increase exponentially.
