Skilled Counselors Assist With Child Custody and Visitation
The goal in any child custody case is determining the best interests of the children involved. In Illinois, parents can seek joint (shared) or sole legal custody, which is the right to make important decisions about the child’s welfare, and joint or sole physical custody, which determines where the child lives. State courts prefer parents to share legal custody whenever possible unless a parent poses a risk to the child’s welfare. We are smart, tough lawyers who will advocate for you and your child in custody determinations and assist with fair visitation agreements for noncustodial parents so they can remain an important part of their children’s lives.
Knowledgeable Advisers Assist With Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
It’s a common misconception that only wealthy couples need prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, but these contracts agreed to by both parties can benefit all couples who want financial security in the event their marriage ends. Our attorneys draft agreements that specify each person’s assets and property rights so that clients can have peace of mind about the future.
Tenacious Attorneys Protect Clients’ Rights in Property Division
Deciding who gets what in a divorce can be one of the most contentious issues couples face. Illinois is an equitable distribution state, which means that courts will divide marital property in a way they deem equitable, though not necessarily a 50-50 split. We will assert your rights in property division and ensure the court has an accurate appraisal of those assets that are part of the marital estate and those that are separate property.
