Legal Help With Family Law Matters

Spouses, parents, or other family members may need to address legal issues in family court, and the decisions made in these cases can have a major personal, financial, and emotional impact on everyone involved. We can assist in resolving family law issues involving:

  • Divorce and Legal Separation - When a married couple gets divorced or legally separated, they will need to address a variety of legal and financial issues, including dividing marital property and determining eligibility for spousal support. In amicable divorce cases, couples may be able to work together and cooperate to reach a settlement, but in contested divorce cases, litigation in the courtroom may be necessary.
  • Child Custody/Allocation of Parental Responsibilities - When separating, parents will need to create a parenting plan that determines how they will share in the responsibility for raising their children. They will also need to create a schedule that describes how parenting time will be divided.
  • Child Support - All parents have an obligation to provide financial support for their children. In Illinois, child support is determined by considering the amount of income earned by both parents.
  • Divorce Mediation - When using this method of alternative dispute resolution, spouses will work together with a neutral, third-party mediator to create a settlement that addresses their outstanding legal issues.
  • Post-Divorce Modifications - If either party experiences significant changes in their lives following divorce, they may petition to have their divorce decree modified to make adjustments to child custody, child support, or spousal maintenance.

Estate Planning Guidance

Creating a plan for the future can ensure that family members will be provided for and that a person's wishes will be followed. During the estate planning process, families may need to address:

  • Wills - A last will and testament can specify a person's last wishes, including how their assets should be distributed to their heirs and who they want to serve as a guardian of their minor children.
  • Trusts - These financial agreements can be used to protect assets and distribute them to beneficiaries either before or after a person's death.
  • Power of Attorney - A person can name someone who they would like to make decisions for them regarding healthcare or finances if they ever become incapacitated.
  • Probate and Decedent's Estates - Following a person's death, their executor or personal representative will oversee the process of carrying out their last wishes and distributing assets to heirs.

Resolving Immigration Issues

U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents may wish to help their family members come to the United States. We can assist with a variety of immigration matters, including:

  • Visas - Family members will need to obtain the proper visas before they can enter the U.S., and different types of visas are available for immediate relatives, other family members, or fiancés.
  • Green Cards - After legally entering the United States, an immigrant may apply to become a lawful permanent resident and obtain a Green Card.
  • Deportation/Removal - If an immigrant is detained by immigration authorities, they may need to take steps to defend against deportation and remain in the United States.
  • Asylum - A person may be able to avoid removal from the U.S. if they have experienced persecution due to their nationality, race, religion, political opinions, or social group membership. 

Assistance With Business Law Concerns

Business owners will want to take steps to ensure their company can be successful while protecting themselves from liability. We can assist with multiple types of business law issues, including:

  • Business Formation - New startups or existing businesses will want to select the correct business entity and meet their requirements for establishing a structure for the business.
  • Contract Review and Disputes - A business may need to enter into employment contracts, partnership agreements, vendor contracts, purchase contracts, commercial leases, or other contractual agreements. In some cases, disputes over these contracts may need to be resolved through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation.

Other Areas of Legal Representation

We can also provide legal help in cases involving:

  • Guardianship - A person may need to be named the legal guardian of a minor child or disabled adult.
  • Lawsuits and Litigation - We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in civil lawsuits seeking to recover money owed by one party to another.
