Kane County Divorce Attorney
"Divorce" is now referred to as "dissolution of marriage" in Illinois. The "law" consists of the statutes, the Illinois Supreme Court Rules, the Illinois Civil Practice Act, the Local Court Rules and in some cases, the Illinois Domestic Violence Act and the Illinois Appellate and Illinois Supreme Court cases interpreting those statutes.
Shaw, Jacobs, Goostree & Associates, P.C., is experienced in handling all divorce and divorce-related issues, including maintenance, property distribution, and tax issues raised by a divorce. We also provide representation in all types of post-divorce actions, such as dissolution decree modification actions, enforcement and contempt cases or child custody modification actions. We work closely with our clients to achieve the best possible result in all divorce actions. We help many clients enforce the provisions of their divorce decree.
The dissolution process can seem daunting, but actually can be very straightforward. Many of the rules reflect common sense and fairness. An experienced family law attorney can explain the entire process and answer your questions.
The most commonly asked questions that we are asked include:
What is the process? What is my next step? How quickly can I begin? How long does it take? How much does it cost? What can I expect to receive? How will the court decide custody and visitation? Are there other ways to resolve some of these issues? Can things be done by agreement? What if my spouse does not cooperate? Do I have to go to court, or can my attorney handle that for me? If we reach an agreement, how soon thereafter will I be divorced? Can I legally date? Can I prevent my spouse from spending money? How is the property and debt distributed? What are my legal rights?
Whether you are experiencing difficulties and are thinking about speaking to an attorney, or whether a legal action has begun, we can promptly meet with you to listen to your concerns and explain your options, professionally and confidentially. Many of our clients expressed fear and concern about their situation, and with the legal process in general, prior to speaking with us, but found relief and confidence after meeting with us to learn the facts about their options and legal rights.
