Family Law and Divorce at the Daley Center in Chicago

When you choose to get divorced, you will need to address all of the legal and financial issues related to the property you own and the income you and your spouse earn. If you and your ex-spouse have children together, or if you are an unmarried parent who is separated from your former partner, you will need to create a parenting plan that addresses all relevant child-related issues and allows the two of you to work together as co-parents.

Our lawyers can assist with the following family law issues at the Daley Center Courthouse:

  • Parenting time and parental responsibilities - Your parenting plan will include a schedule for the days and times children will be with each parent, and it will specify how you will make decisions about raising your children as co-parents. A parenting plan may need to be modified in cases of parental relocation.
  • Spousal maintenance/alimony - A lower-earning spouse may need to receive financial support from the other spouse to maintain their standard of living until they are able to support themselves. The amount of spousal support payments will be based on the income earned by both parties, and the duration the payments will last will be based on the length of the marriage.
  • Asset and debt division - All property and debts acquired during a marriage must be divided between spouses. Illinois uses the principle of "equitable distribution," meaning that assets should be divided fairly, but not necessarily equally. In addition to physical property, funds in bank accounts, and real estate, spouses may need to determine how to divide retirement funds, professional practices and family businesses, and trusts or estates.
  • High net worth and complex divorce - Large incomes and valuable assets can complicate the divorce process, especially when a case involves business valuation, tax considerations, or hidden assets. Corporate officers or shareholders and celebrities or public figures may need to address complex financial matters and privacy-related concerns.
  • Grey divorce - When one or both spouses are 50 years old or more, or if either or both parties have retired, a divorce case may need to address retirement benefits, Social Security, Medicare, and other financial and health-related concerns.
  • Paternity/parentage - Unmarried parents may need to take steps to establish legal paternity for their child(ren), protecting the child's right to have a relationship with both parents and receive child support.
  • Adoption - Cook County adoption cases are handled by the County Division, which is located at the Daley Center. Adoptive parents will need to meet the necessary legal requirements to complete an international adoption, agency adoption, private adoption, DCFS adoption, or step-parent adoption. Adult adoption is also an option where appropriate.
  • Same-sex couples - LGBTQ couples who are married or in a civil union may need to address unique concerns when getting divorced or separated, including matters related to custody of children, child support, parenting time, shared property, and alimony.
