The divorce process in Illinois is governed by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act. Issues affecting families in a divorce are provided for in this statute, as well as provisions governing children, property distribution, and spousal support. Any person anticipating a divorce must have a working understanding of the Court process as well as the substantive issues to be addressed. The legal process of divorce may involve issues of maintenance (spousal support), parenting issues such as allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time, child support, distribution of property, and division of debt.
If you are not a natural parent of a child who is currently in your care or if your family circumstances are such that a child to whom you are not the parent will be in your care soon, you need to obtain the Legal Guardianship of the child so you can arrange for education and medical care for that child. This is where we come in. Our family law attorneys are well versed with these types of cases and the unique circumstances.
Regardless of how modest or extensive your estate is, you must decide how it will be eventually allocated. When you participate in estate planning, you create legally binding documents with instructions that ensure your wishes are carried out after your death or if you become unable to manage your affairs.
