Family law involves some of the most intimate and personal matters addressed by the Illinois court system. Family law encompasses everything from married couples seeking a divorce to petitions seeking to establish a child’s paternity. In many of these cases, emotions tend to run high among the participants, which often complicates efforts to seek a negotiated solution.
At the SAM LAW OFFICE LLC, our experienced Wheeling family law attorneys provide compassionate and professional representation to individuals involved in these disputes. Our goal is always to seek the best possible resolution of a legal dispute for both our clients and their families. At the same time, we will zealously represent and defend your rights in court.
In recent years, there have been a number of significant changes in the way Illinois handles family court matters. The 2016 amendments to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act have replaced the previous fault-based divorce regime with a “no-fault” system that only requires divorcing spouses to establish “irreconcilable differences” that led to the breakdown of the marriage. These amendments have also altered the way Illinois judges handle related issues, such as child custody and spousal maintenance.
Some of the more common problems our clients come to us with include:
