For many mothers, getting child support established during a divorce or separation is important for maintaining stability in the home.
To help you protect your property and your best interests during a divorce, our attorneys are prepared to advocate for you.
When mothers file for divorce, child custody issues are a top concern. Our lawyers focus on and advocate for mothers’ rights.
Whatever the circumstance, parental responsibilities can still be allocated, and both parents can share important decision-making responsibilities and parenting time.
After years or sometimes decades of marriage, elements of a divorce, such as the division of marital property, can become quite complicated.
Most people are unfamiliar with the divorce process. We will help you create & execute a plan to manage the difficulties that come with ending a marriage.
Working with an experienced attorney who can help you to ensure that a business valuation occurs in a fair and accurate matter is essential.
We provide the caring, compassionate service you need while using our legal knowledge and experience to bring perpetrators to justice.
The Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group takes pride in offering comprehensive legal services to clients in the Chicagoland area and throughout Illinois. We stay abreast of new developments in family law, such as the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act, which created a new classification of family law focused on nontraditional and alternative families.
With the passage of the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act, same-sex couples are not only able to honor and memorialize their relationships, but they are also able to end their civil unions and/or partnerships, much like a divorce.
Over the years, our practice has grown to serve people who need diverse representation in nontraditional family law areas, for example:
Our attorneys have business and corporate law experience, and are qualified to handle complex divorce cases involving family-owned businesses and business valuations. If a divorcing couple has business interests in common, we help ensure that the division of assets is handled properly by working cooperatively with appraisers and effectively presenting findings in settlement negotiations or at trial.
Along with appraisals from valuation professionals, family courts often look to certain IRS rulings, such as Revenue Ruling 59-60 (which deals with the valuation of shares of capital stock in closely-held corporations), when determining a business’s value. We understand how courts use such rulings and apply this knowledge to protect our client’s business interests through the divorce process.
Our firm strives to be at the forefront of developments in family law. If you need a lawyer who is familiar with the concerns of nontraditional families, or if your divorce involves a family-owned business, please contact the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group for an initial consultation. We can provide the intelligent, assertive representation your case requires.
