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 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, they are also able to end their civil unions and/or partnerships much like a divorce. In 2010, the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group filed Illinois’ first-ever civil union divorce. Our firm is proud of this accomplishment and continues to promote and protect the rights of non-traditional families.
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 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’ value. We understand how courts use such rulings, and apply this knowledge to protect our clients’ 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 on nontraditional families, or if your divorce involves a family-owned business, please contact the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group for a free initial consultation. We can provide the intelligent, assertive representation your case requires.
