Welcome to Strategic Divorce - Illinois Family Law Firm

Our attorneys provide strategic planning counsel for divorce, child custody disputes and more.

We know emotions can run high in divorce, from anger to disappointment, and that these emotions can increase conflict. In fact, there are attorneys who count on that to make more money. We loathe those attorneys.

Here’s the reality. Your divorce does not have to eviscerate your family or your finances. Our attorneys are experienced in alternative ways of reaching a divorce settlement in Illinois, such as mediation and negotiation.

That said, some cases need to be tried to obtain a fair outcome. Our attorneys prepare each case for possible trial. If the other side is unreasonable, we will be prepared to take your case as far as it needs to go. By letting you know how judges have ruled in cases with similar fact patterns, you can be strategic and avoid wasteful conflict.

Protecting Your Rights In Divorce And Custody Disputes - You Have A Choice

Every divorce is unique because every family is unique. If a divorce is in your future, it’s important to proceed with a clear understanding of your rights under Illinois law.

At Strategic Divorce, our attorneys handle every aspect of divorce from marital property division, spousal maintenance, to child custody and support. We also handle post-decree modifications such as relocation or changes in custody.

Every aspect of the divorce is a piece of a puzzle that needs to be handled strategically and with careful regard to your overall goals. Our attorneys are here to advise you every step of the way.

Child Custody

Child custody battles can be a hair pull. However, with the right kind help from an experienced child custody attorney, a swift and painless solution can be procured. The goal of a child custody attorney is to assist the parents with a plan that focuses on the child’s best interests. Knowing whether a child will be better off living mainly with one parent, or if he or she is happier spending equal amounts of time with both parents is crucial in the custody process. Parents should be aware that decisions regarding their children during a divorce or separation will not be easy, but it’s not impossible.

A plan will help ease the transition for everyone involved. Having a child custody plan will help spouses move toward a smoother divorce. Discussing and negotiating child custody can be done out of court or if necessary in litigation. Our office serving the Illinois and surrounding counties area can assist your family needs when it comes to child custody disagreements and concerns.

Child Support

Child support can be very challenging when spouses disagree with the amount that is to be paid every month. Finances are not an easy subject to discuss, but in cases where child support is concerned, it is essential to determine the appropriate amounts disbursed to the receiving parent. Having a child support attorney who knows how to manage these cases can help parents navigate the complex nature of this process.

A child support attorney can help negotiate the correct amount of child support. Often, the most challenging aspect of child support cases is determining the parent’s actual income. Depending on the person’s profession or employment, an accountant may be needed to help calculate their income.

In Illinois, parents are obligated to support their children until the age of 18 – this is the age the state defines that a child is an adult. However, in some situations, a child support order may continue after the age of 18 if it does not specify an end date. In such cases, a parent cannot stop payments when their child reaches 18. Child support can vary in financial requirements. It is imperative to reach out to a child support attorney in the Illinois area to go over options and obligations.

At Strategic Divorce, we can help find the right options and advice for your family. To discuss child support, contact us today.

It can be challenging to accurately predict what the outcome will be in a divorce case, but at Strategic Divorce in Lake Bluff, IL, our attorneys will guide you in the right direction.


Spousal support or alimony is often referred to as maintenance, under the maintenance statute. The maintenance statute guides attorneys throughout the legal process of alimony. The length of spousal support is based on how long the marriage lasted. There are various guidelines that dictate maintenance statutes, and each case involving spousal support is unique. It is essential to consult your options with an experienced alimony or maintenance attorney for the best solution to your case.

Divorce can be emotionally draining, and the results can lead to alimony support. Alimony can be a sensitive subject to those going through a divorce. This issue can be challenging.
