Darien, IL Divorce and Estate Planning Attorneys

Darien law firm for civil litigation, business contracts, and probate

Lawyers for Family Law, Immigration, Business Law, and Litigation in Darien

Legal issues can be complex and confusing for those who are not familiar with the laws, the courts, and the procedures followed when addressing these matters. For those in Darien and the surrounding areas who need to address issues involving family law, business law, estate planning, immigration, or other important cases, it is crucial to work with a law firm that can provide experienced guidance and dedicated legal representation.

At SBK Law Group, our lawyers have a combined total of over 25 years of experience, and we are ready to work together with you to address and resolve your legal concerns. We can provide the legal help you need in cases involving divorce, business contracts, deportation/removal, decedent's estates, and more. Our practice areas include:

Family Law

  • Divorce - When splitting up with your spouse, you may be able to have an amicable divorce, or disputes with your spouse may require you to proceed with contested divorce litigation. We can provide the representation you need throughout the divorce process, including determining whether a legal separation might be beneficial while you and your spouse decide whether to permanently dissolve your marriage.
  • Child custody and child support - Divorcing or separated parents must create a parenting plan or parenting agreement that details the allocation of decision-making responsibilities for their children, as well as how they will divide parenting time (visitation) and address other child-related issues. We can assist in creating a parenting plan, and we can ensure that both parents' incomes are considered when determining the financial obligations required to meet children's needs.
  • Asset division - We can help you protect your financial interests when dividing the property you own together with your spouse, including your home, bank accounts, retirement accounts or pensions, personal belongings, and loans or credit card debts.
  • Spousal maintenance - If either spouse earns a significantly higher income, spousal support (previously referred to as alimony) may be awarded to the other spouse. We can work with you to protect your rights in these matters and ensure that maintenance is calculated correctly.
  • Post-divorce modifications - We can provide representation in cases where one spouse wishes to make changes to a divorce decree, including situations involving parental relocation, increases or decreases in income, or requested modifications to child custody or visitation schedules.

Estate Planning

  • Wills and trusts - We can help you create a last will and testament that specifies your wishes for what should happen after your death. We can also work with you to create different types of trusts to ensure that your family's assets are protected and that they will be distributed properly to your beneficiaries. In addition to passing your property to your loved ones after your death, you can use trusts to provide for your own needs during your lifetime.
  • Powers of attorney - To ensure that you will be properly cared for, we can help you create an agreement that will name a person who can make decisions about your medical care or finances if you are incapacitated or are unable to address your own needs.
  • Probate - After a person's death, the executor of their estate or a personal representative will complete the process of addressing their final affairs and distributing their assets to their heirs. We can provide representation in these cases and ensure that decedent's estates are managed properly.

Business Law

  • Startups and business formation - Both new and existing businesses will need to make sure they are structured properly to protect owners and partners from personal liability and take advantage of tax benefits. We can help you meet the requirements to establish your business as a partnership, corporation, or LLC.
  • Contract review - We will work with you to ensure contractual agreements such as partnership agreements, vendor contracts, employment contracts, or lease agreements will protect your rights and meet your company's needs.

Immigration

  • Immigrant visas - We work with U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to apply for and obtain visas that will allow family members to come to the United States to live and work. We can provide legal help with immediate relative visas, family preference visas, and fiancé(e) visas.
  • Green Cards - We can help immigrants to the U.S. apply for lawful permanent resident status or remove the conditions on permanent residence.
  • Deportation/removal - We provide representation for those who have been detained by immigration authorities, helping them understand their rights and working to ensure they can stay in the United States, including determining whether they can claim asylum due to fear of persecution in their country of origin.

Other Legal Concerns

  • Guardianship - If you are caring for a minor child or an adult who has special needs, we can help you establish legal guardianship for this person. If you are an elderly or disabled adult who wishes to name a person who is authorized to provide for your personal needs and/or manage your finances, we can help you understand your options, including determining whether limited guardianship is appropriate.
  • Civil litigation - An individual or business may seek to recover money from another party through a civil lawsuit. We can help you pursue this type of litigation, or we can provide representation if a lawsuit has been filed against you.
