If you need assistance with legal issues affecting your family, it is important to work with an attorney who has extensive experience both in and out of court, as well as a breadth of legal knowledge regarding all possible aspects of your case. In a given situation, you could find yourself needing to address your property and assets, your children, your living arrangements, your estate plan, and more. In these cases, an attorney who has a comprehensive understanding of your needs is a valuable asset.

At The Law Office of George J. Skuros, we provide legal services for divorce and other family law matters, as well as other practice areas that may affect you and your family, including real estate and probate. With over 30 years of legal experience, we can give informed answers to your questions, help you understand what to expect from the legal process and the likely outcomes to your case, and pursue the course of action that best meets your needs.

Legal Services for Divorce in Illinois

When getting a divorce, you will need to work toward a resolution that protects your financial and parental interests. If you and your spouse want to pursue an uncontested divorce, we can advise you throughout negotiations and help you file your settlement and other important documents with the court. In a high-conflict divorce that must be resolved through litigation, we will advocate confidently on your behalf. Some of the divorce issues we help with include:

Other Family Law Services

We also help with many family law issues outside of the divorce process. If you are soon-to-be-married, or if you want to establish additional protections during your marriage, we can work with you and your spouse to create a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement regarding your property and assets. If you have a child while unmarried, we can help you establish paternity voluntarily or judicially, as well as establish court orders allocating child support obligations and parental responsibilities and parenting time when appropriate. If you or your children are at risk of domestic abuse, we can help you obtain an order of protection from your abuser.

Cook County Attorney for Real Estate and Probate

Aside from our focus on family law, we provide legal services for other matters that commonly arise when you get a divorce, get married, or have children, or when you simply wish to provide a good life for your family. With our experience in Illinois real estate law, we can help you fairly value your home and other real estate properties in preparation for the divorce process, as well as handle the selling, buying, or refinancing of your real estate property as part of your divorce agreement.

We can also help with the creation of an estate plan to provide protection for you and your family during your lifetime and after your death. This includes drafting or updating a will to provide important instructions for your assets during the probate process, considering options like trusts that protect your assets from probate, assigning powers of attorney for your property and healthcare, and nominating guardians for your minor children. We also assist with other probate issues, including the guardianship of disabled adults and the transfer of assets through intestate succession.
