Divorce and Family Law Cases in Skokie

Whether you are planning to legally dissolve your marriage or need to address matters related to your children, you will want to have a skilled legal advocate on your side. Our attorneys can assist with:

  • Division of marital property - All marital assets should be divided fairly and equitably between divorcing spouses. We can advocate for your rights during the property division process, and we can help you determine how to handle assets such as family businesses or professional practices and pensions or retirement accounts.
  • Spousal support/maintenance - So that both parties can continue to live at the standard they were used to while they were married, one spouse may need to receive financial support from their former partner. We can help you understand your rights regarding spousal maintenance, and we will make sure all relevant financial factors are taken into account when calculating the amount of support payments. In some circumstances, it will be appropriate to argue for an upward or downward deviation of alimony.
  • Complex divorce - Entrepreneurs, corporate executives, or couples with a high net worth may face unique concerns during the divorce process. We can assist with matters involving wealth protection or trusts and estates, and we can also help protect your rights if you need to address hidden assets or health concerns. We can help protect your rights in these sensitive circumstances.
  • Grey divorce - When you are planning to get divorced over 50 or after retirement, we can help you address your financial concerns and make sure you can meet your needs going forward.
  • Child custody - During a divorce or separation, you will need to create a parenting plan that addresses the allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time. We can ensure that your parental rights and your children's best interests are protected when creating your parenting plan. In some situations, restrictions or limits on parenting are appropriate.
  • Child relocation - If a custodial parent or a parent who shares equal parenting time wishes to move to a new home, he or she may need to receive approval from the court. We can help you meet your legal requirements if you are planning to move, or we can help you address a proposed relocation by the other parent if you are defending against the move.
  • Paternity - Couples who were unmarried when their child was born will need to take steps to ensure that both the mother and father are named as the child's legal parents. By establishing paternity, you can protect your parental rights and make sure your child will receive child support and other benefits from both parents. For example, a DNA test can help you secure rights to parenting time, for or against.
  • Orders of protection - In cases involving domestic violence, we can help you obtain a restraining order that will protect you, your children, or other family members from further abuse. We can also help defend against orders of protection that were obtained following false accusations of abuse.
