Illinois law has undergone some changes in recent years with respect to family law and family court procedures. Our attorneys are constantly monitoring for changes in the law and court system to make sure our clients are not in the dark on what is happening.

This is just one aspect of the wide-ranging family law guidance we provide.
Common family law matters our Arlington Heights attorneys routinely handle include:
- Divorce: Divorce can be contested or uncontested. Our divorce experience also includes collaborative divorces, same-sex divorces, and high asset divorces.
- Child Custody and Visitation: After recent changes in the law, child custody in Illinois is now referred to as “division of parental responsibilities,” and visitation is now part of a parenting plan. Parenting plans deal with the time each parent spends with the child and also legal rights pertaining to decision making authority over healthcare, development, and overall well-being.
- Spousal Support: Spousal support is commonly called alimony by many people. Our legal services also include seeking modifications of spousal support awards.
- Parental Rights: Trying to establish paternity for your child? We can help. We also deal with cases involving mothers’ rights and fathers’ rights.
- Child Support: We can assist with obtaining an order for child support or having an existing order modified. Temporary support orders may be applicable in some cases.
- Civil Unions: Under current laws in Illinois, couples who were once considered domestic partners are eligible to receive the same benefits as married couples. This means that if you opt for a civil union, you have the right to file joint state tax returns, inherit a partner’s assets, make healthcare decisions for your partner, and more.
