Division of Property in Illinois

In divorce, there are many issues to contend with, particularly division of property. Illinois is an equitable distribution state. This means that marital property must be divided in a manner that is equitable, but not necessarily equal. In most cases, the greater the value of the marital estate, the more complex it is to divide the estate in a divorce. Our attorneys are skilled in dealing with many types of divorce including high asset/complex divorces. We are also veterans in working with family businesses and in handling business valuations and maintenance/alimony.

Child Issues in Divorce

Some of the most problematic areas of a divorce are usually those related to child custody and child support. Emotions can take hold of both parties involved and there can be major financial burdens put upon either side. Our lawyers always look to put the best interests of the children first in negotiations. We also do our best to protect our clients' parenting rights and satisfy your goals regarding child issues in a divorce.

Parents who are willing and able to reach a mutual agreement on child custody/support have the best outcomes for the kids and family involved in a divorce. This enables harmony to continue in a family and lessens the need for post decree modification going forward. If an agreement is not possible, our skilled attorneys will aggressively represent our clients' needs and interests of the children in court.
