Whether our clients are planning for divorce, or divorce proceedings have been initiated by their spouse, we have the knowledge and experience to help protect our clients' financial and emotional interests. There are three primary approaches to divorce: litigation, mediation, and collaborative law. While we regularly use alternative methods to settle divorce issues, we recognize that disputes involving parental responsibilities (child custody), child support and spousal support, and property division often necessitate divorce litigation.
You might also be wondering about whether you can file an annulment of your marriage as well. Essentially, an annulment voids the marriage, on the premise that the marriage was not legally valid in the first place. This could be due to reasons such as marriage without consent, inability to consummate the marriage, or one or the other spouses was underage at the time of marriage, thus being unable to consent. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our DuPage County divorce lawyers if you have any further questions about annulments or divorce and how we can help!
Our divorce lawyers strive to not only help our clients resolve divorce disputes but to educate them about the divorce process and prepare them for the future. During our initial consultation, we listen to the specifics of our client's situation, provide tools for the client to assess their current and future financial needs, and help them project realistic outcomes based on Illinois divorce law.
Our divorce lawyers are also experienced in cases involving the Hague Convention on the Recognition of Divorces and Legal Separations. Entwined in this is the issue of parenting concerns regarding children removed to another county. We work closely with our clients to make sure their legal rights are protected when a spouse leaves the US and takes the children with them.
