Chicago, IL Family Law Attorney

North Shore family law attorney

Lawyer for Paternity, Divorce, and Child-Related Issues in Cook County and Surrounding Areas

Legal matters that involve your family are some of the most difficult to deal with, but they are often unavoidable. If you need to end your marriage, or if you have a child when you are not married, you will need to be sure that your needs and your children's needs are provided for. And, in any case, you should have a plan to provide for your family when you are no longer able to.

All of these issues can be handled with the help of an experienced family law attorney. At The Law Office of George J. Skuros, we have over 30 years of family law experience, and we know how important it is to resolve these matters the right way. When you work with us, we will help you find a solution that meets your needs and work diligently to help you achieve it.

Cook County Attorney for a Range of Family Law Issues

We can assist you with all manner of legal issues related to your family, including:

  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements - Entering an agreement with your spouse before or during your marriage helps you answer important questions about your property and assets and what happens to them if the marriage ends. We can help you draft a prenup or postnup that is fair and legally valid.
  • Divorce - If you do choose to end your marriage, we can represent you throughout the divorce process to resolve issues related to the division of marital assets, spousal support, and the allocation of parental responsibilities. We provide legal services for both uncontested and contested divorces.
  • Paternity - We represent mothers and fathers in cases involving children outside of marriage. We can help you take the steps to establish paternity voluntarily or protect your interests in an administrative or judicial proceeding.
  • Child support - Whether you are divorced or never married, you and your child's other parent will need to share the responsibility of supporting your child financially. We can help you pursue a child support order that considers your financial resources and limitations and accounts for the extent of your child's needs.
  • Parental responsibilities and parenting time - When establishing paternity or getting a divorce, you will likely also need to determine how each parent will be involved in raising a child. We can advise you on the creation of a parenting plan or represent you in a contested custody case to protect your parental rights and your children's best interests.
  • Orders of protection - If you or your child has been the victim of domestic abuse from your spouse, your child's other parent, or another member of your household, we can help you obtain an order of protection to keep you from future harm, including an emergency order that takes effect immediately.
  • Guardianship - We can help you establish provisions for the guardianship of your minor children in the event that you are unable to care for them, or petition for the guardianship of a child in need. We also handle cases involving guardianship for adults with disabilities.
  • Estate planning and probate - We can work with you to draft a will and establish trusts and other methods of passing on assets to your spouse, children, and other beneficiaries after your death. We also assist with estate administration and issues of intestate succession during the probate process.
