Areas of Practice

Contested + Uncontested Divorce

The world of divorce is constantly evolving, and we’re not just talking about the law. With the consistent introduction of new approaches and strategies given the rise in technology, the opportunity for discovery grows, but so does the complexity. That’s where we come in.

Parenting Time + Visitation

Demystifying parenting time, formerly known as visitation, is a creative practice. It requires finesse, strategic structuring, and in many ways, empathy. At the end of the day, time with your child is profoundly personal. That’s why we advise mediation before stepping into litigation.

Pre- + Post-Nuptial Agreements

Drafting contracts adheres to a certain creative skill-set. It requires analytical thinking, tactful writing, and in many ways, skillful negotiating. Honestly, no one gets married anticipating divorce. That’s why we advise entering into pre- or post-nuptial contracts to avoid potential litigation.

Child Relocation + Child Removal

In this fast-paced world, careers and family can lead people to different states. With family being at the crux of everyone's lives, it's imperative that children be protected during the move. Illinois has new laws governing relocation of children and a strict procedure about seeking to relocate.

Paternity + parentage

Establishing your rights as a mother or father is so critical to the well-being of your child that it's hard to imagine losing them. While the law is designed to make our lives simpler, behind the curtains are fluctuating challenges in application—challenges that our firm stays two steps ahead of.

Child Support + Expenses

Child Support is a dynamic area of law. Starting July 1, 2017, the change in law was implemented and child support is no longer calculated by a straight percentage system. It now requires analysis of both parties' incomes and parenting time. Let us crunch these numbers for you.

Division of Assets + Liabilities

Dividing property and debt can either be the easiest of endeavors or can be the most challenging. At the bedrock of this issue is the understanding of what is mine and what is yours. Without the proper legal knowledge and definitions, property division can become highly contested.

Grandparents' Rights

Grandparents provide love and affection for their grandchildren. Often times, two parents might not get along and their disagreement might affect the children's relationship with their grandparents. Despite the myriad of rules, there is a way to fix it. We'll tell you how.

parental responsibilities + Custody

Allocation of Parental Responsibilities, formerly known as custody, is still a new and fierce frontier that requires legal advice from attorneys who are deeply entrenched in the particularities of this field. Our firm gives you a holistic approach, so you can get the best competitive advantage.

Spousal Maintenance + Alimony

Having to support your former spouse can be a harrowing thought. How much to pay, how long to pay for, and when to start can all be questions that might seem fluid. We'll give you the answers you're looking for. Perhaps permanent spousal maintenance isn't all that permanent after all.

Orders of protection

An order of protection intends to stop someone from going near someone else, and the consequences of failing to adhere can result in jail time and criminal consequences. Even a few harmless text messages can rub someone the wrong way. A skilled attorney can help avoid this.

Post-Decree + Post-Judgment Issues

The family law and domestic relations world is a little bit like the Wild West. There’s a lot of potential for success, but the rules can seem convoluted and vague at best. Protecting your rights after the judgment has been entered can be tricky in circumstances.
