Divorce Lawyers Advocating for Women and Mothers in Deerfield

Even if you’re familiar with how divorce works in Illinois, it is often difficult to appreciate the complexities without the advice and counsel of a skilled attorney. Lawyers have an advanced understanding of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, which covers all divorce cases. Because the law has recently been revised, it’s important to consult with an attorney who has experience serving the needs of women and mothers with minor children.

The attorneys at the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group would always discuss the details of your situation with you, but some information on divorce basics under Illinois law nay be helpful. Different provisions of the statute will apply depending on your case.

  • Valuation and Distribution of Assets: Real estate and personal property that you acquired during your marriage will be divided between you and your spouse. Judges review each person’s income, financial needs, the standard of living during the marriage, and other factors to ensure an equitable distribution of marital property.
  • Spousal Maintenance: Illinois law provides a formula for calculating alimony, which is legally termed spousal support. Courts consider the income of each spouse and the duration of the marriage, but will make a determination based upon the entirety of the facts.
  • Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time: Under the new state law, the concepts of “custody” and “visitation” have made way for a shared approach to parenting minor children. Your final divorce decree will include a Parenting Plan that allocates parental responsibilities and decision making, as well as parenting time.
  • Child Support: A non-residential parent may be required to contribute to the basic needs of minor children, such as food and clothing. Guidelines for child support are provided, but the statute also allows for additional payments as necessary for medical expenses, care services, educational programs, and extracurricular activities.
