Illinois property division concerns

Whether you are afraid of losing a large portion of your assets in a marriage, or you are afraid of not getting your just due, there will be many factors to consider during the property division process of divorce proceedings. Indeed, due to the complex nature of the property division process, Illinois residents may wish to employ the services of a qualified and experienced family law attorney to help them understand and actively protect their rights during the process.

Laws that cover property division in Illinois

Getting a divorce is never easy, and the state of Illinois has set out some pretty far-reaching rules and laws that must be followed regarding property division. If you ever asked yourself if you have the right to property you owned before the marriage, you may want to consult a legal professional who can look over your case and offer advice that is steeped in the knowledge of the laws of Illinois.

Child custody modifications in Illinois

If you have questions about your current child custody arrangements, you may wish to speak with a qualified family law attorney in order to obtain the answers to your questions. Indeed, in certain situations, parents may have the right pursue modifications to their child custody arrangements in court. It is important to remember that only child custody arrangements that have been formally modified through court proceedings are legally enforceable. Informal agreements arrived at between two parents do not hold water in court.

How can an Illinois collaborative law attorney help with divorce?

When it comes to divorce and divorce mediation, Illinois residents who want to separate peacefully may want to consider the collaborative law process. Collaborative law has been around for decades, but it is only recently that it has really begun to take off -- and for good reason. Collaborative law seeks to help Illinois couples complete their divorces with dignity, fairness and without the fighting and hatred that many divorces can descend to. The process can also save couples a great deal of time and money.
