Skilled Family Law Counsel and Representation in Kane County

Many family law firms are focused exclusively on divorce and divorce-related matters. While divorce proceedings and related matters account for a major portion of our family law practice, our attorneys are experienced in handling all types of family law matters including:

  • Civil Union Dissolution – We provide the same high level of advocacy in assisting clients with civil union dissolutions as with marriage dissolutions. While civil unions may not be as common following the legalization of same-sex marriage, couples who have entered into these types of arrangements may need to address some unique issues in the event of a breakup.
  • LGBTQ Marriage and Divorce - Same-sex couples have the same right to get married and end their marriages through divorce as opposite-sex couples. However, they may encounter some unique issues in these situations, and LGBTQ families may also need to address legal issues that affect parents, children, or other family members. We provide compassionate, caring legal representation in these situations, treating families with the respect and dignity they deserve.
  • Legal Separation – We help negotiate and litigate child custody, child support, and property division issues involved in legal separations. While these cases are treated similar to divorce, there are some unique concerns that may need to be addressed. We can provide guidance on when remaining married and getting a legal separaton may be beneficial, and we can help negotiate separation agreements that will meet our clients' needs.
  • Paternity – Our attorneys help resolve questions of paternity and represent clients in related child support, child custody, and parenting time matters. We can ensure that legal relationships are established between parents and children, or we can help presumed fathers dispute paternity if they believe that they are not a child's biological father.
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements – We negotiate and draft prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that are durable and effective at expressing our clients' wishes should their marriages end in divorce. These agreements can benefit spouses in many situations, helping them protect their assets, provide for their financial needs, and avoid contentious disputes in the event of divorce.
  • Domestic Violence Protection – Our attorneys help obtain orders of protection to protect clients in abusive relationships and family situations where they or their children may be at risk of harm. We can ensure that abuse victims will be able to escape dangerous home environments while addressing issues related to divorce and child custody and avoiding the possibility of future harm.
