Chicago Family Law, Divorce & Child Custody Attorneys

The Women's Divorce & Family Law Group is focused on protecting the legal rights of women and mothers facing divorce.

As the first law firm in the Chicagoland area to focus on women's and mother's rights, the Women's Divorce & Family Law Group by Haid & Teich LLP is highly attuned to the unique needs and challenges confronting women going through the divorce process.  In fact, the firm was first envisioned when one of its original founders personally experienced the difficulty of finding an attorney to represent her during a divorce.  We understand that the attorney you hire should work for you!  Accordingly, we strive to provide pragmatic and creative solutions to the often complicated issues facing those undergoing a divorce while always remaining mindful of the stresses this process can impose on your entire family.

Our firm can help to protect you and your family’s interests from the first moment you contact us. Our firm has experience handling the most complex divorces with significant assets at stake to the most simple.  We also have extensive experience handling the most complex custody disputes from abuse and emotional issues to custody cases with international and inter-state disputes involving parents living (or wanting to live) in different states or countries.  Our attorneys are credited with filing Illinois’ first same-sex divorce while we work to consult other law firms on and promote the rights of alternative families, including domestic and civil union partners. The services we offer encompass the following family law matters:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody (both domestic and international)
  • Visitation
  • Child Support (and enforcement)
  • Maintenance (i.e. "Spousal Support" or Alimony
  • Modifying and Enforcing Divorce & Custody Agreements
  • Pre-Divorce Planning
  • Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
  • Domestic Violence & Orders of Protection
  • Grandparents' Rights
  • Guardianships
  • Services for Nontraditional Families
  • Family Business Issues

When clients come to our offices, they are often most worried about what lies ahead for themselves and their children. In response, one of our first priorities is to provide you with the peace of mind of knowing what you can expect from your case. We will work with you to ensure that you fully understand the issues in your case and our “game plan” for how we plan on achieving your goals. Our proactive approach means that we identify our clients' needs right from the start of a case, and rather than simply reciting the law, we apply the law to the relevant issues and explain the result at each turn.

Women Need Strong Advocates During Divorce

Although we represent both men and women undergoing divorces, there remains the common misconception that women have an “advantage” in a divorce. This just isn’t the case under today’s laws.  Anyone undergoing a divorce or custody dispute should obtain strong advocates to protect their interests and those of their children.

Emphasis on Client Communication

A significant percentage of our cases are brought to us from client’s that have left (or fired) their former attorney.  The number #1 reason people leave their attorneys is a lack of communication.  At our law firm,  we understand that our clients' lives do not stop because they are going through divorce or dealing with another legal matter. Therefore, we work to provide a high level of client interaction through in-person meetings, phone calls and emails. We believe communication is so important that we are now proud to announce our firm’s new state-of-the art web and phone apps so our clients can access their case information from their own computer or smart phone at any time!
