Divorce Representation
Divorce is a life changing event that profoundly impacts many aspects of one’s life. Individuals facing a divorce often feel powerless, confused and fearful about their future.

Maintenance
The purpose of maintenance is to enable a spouse who is not capable of supporting him or her self to continue to have the lifestyle to which he or she became accustomed during the marriage.

Child Support
At Strategic Divorce, we understand that the amount of child support which a client will receive or be required to pay can have a major impact on their financial future.

Child Custody
Decisions regarding a child’s education, religion, healthcare and extracurricular activities are deemed to be major decisions under Illinois law.

Divorce Mediation
Under the right circumstances, mediation can be an effective alternative to traditional divorce litigation which reduces the emotional and financial cost of divorce.

Interstate Divorce
In the case of an interstate divorce, it is essential that you employ the services of reputable family law attorneys with direct experience in the laws governing inter-state divorce.

Property Division
Strategic Divorce attorneys have extensive experience in handling even the most complex and challenging property issues.

Orders of Protection
If you or your children are the victims of verbal, emotional or physical abuse, you can obtain legal protection through an Order of Protection or Restraining Order.

College Expenses
In determining each party’s obligation to contribute to their children’s college expenses, the Court will consider the respective income and financial resources of each party and their household.

Parentage & Paternity
Under Illinois Law, the same standards regarding custody/allocation of parental responsibilities and child support which are applied to divorcing couples are applied to unmarried parents.

Divorce Disputes
Under appropriate circumstances, a party may seek a modification of custody/parenting time, child support, maintenance and other financial rights and obligations.

You Have A Choice

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 in Lake County have ruled in cases with similar fact patterns, you can be strategic and avoid wasteful conflict.
