Legal Issues Related to Divorce in Arlington Heights

There are a number of legal issues you need to consider before you or your spouse file for divorce and during the divorce process. These issues include:

  • Child custody and visitation - If you and your spouse have children, one of the most important things to consider is how you will share custody. You will need to work with an attorney to create a parenting plan that meets the needs of your children and complies with Illinois law. Your parenting agreement will detail how matters related to the allocation of parental responsibilities (also known as legal custody) will be handled going forward, and it will also provide a detailed parenting time schedule, as well as any other rules or requirements that will apply to you and the other parent.
  • Child support - If you will be paying financial support for your children, you will need to work with an attorney to ensure that the amount you pay is fair and in compliance with Illinois law. If you expect to receive support from the other parent, a lawyer can ensure that the amount paid will meet your children's needs. In addition to "basic" child support obligations that address essential needs such as food, shelter, and clothing, you can also make sure your child support orders will address various expenses related to your children. Our attorneys can help you ensure that all issues related to child support will be addressed correctly.
  • Division of assets and liabilities - You and your spouse will need to negotiate a fair and equitable division of marital assets, and you will also need to account for any debts that you owe. Our lawyers can make sure all forms of property will be addressed correctly. We can advise you on the best ways to approach the division of complex assets, including retirement accounts and pensions, family-owned businesses, and your marital home or other real estate property.
  • Spousal support - Alimony, which is sometimes referred to as spousal support or spousal maintenance, consists of financial assistance that one spouse may provide to the other following a divorce. Our attorneys can help you determine if this form of support will be appropriate in your case, and we will make sure that any spousal support you receive or pay is in compliance with Illinois law.

These are just some of the legal issues associated with divorce in Arlington Heights. Our lawyers can provide invaluable legal guidance, no matter your situation. We can ensure that you follow the correct steps in an uncontested divorce, and we can help you protect your rights and interests in a high-conflict divorce. We can also make sure you understand the tax considerations you will need to address during the divorce process, and we can advise you on how to proceed if you need to modify your divorce decree in the future.
