Schaumburg, IL Divorce Attorney

Schaumburg divorce attorney

Family Lawyer for Property Division and Child Custody in the Northwest Suburbs of Cook County

Getting a divorce is often a stressful process, both because of the emotional impact and the seemingly countless details that you will need to address in order to ensure that you set yourself up for success once the marriage has ended. No matter how much you prepare for your divorce, it is easy to find yourself overwhelmed or unsure of how to proceed.

At The Law Office of George J. Skuros, we strive to remove much of the uncertainty from the divorce process by educating our clients about reasonable expectations and keeping them well informed from beginning to end. With more than 30 years of legal experience, we have a thorough understanding of the challenges you are likely to encounter, and we can help you address them in a way that protects your interests and meets your needs.

Legal Representation for Uncontested and Contested Divorces in Schaumburg

When you want to end your marriage, one of the most important questions to consider is whether you and your spouse can reach a divorce resolution amicably, or whether you are dealing with highly contentious issues that can only be resolved through litigation. It may surprise you to learn that in Illinois, most divorces are settled out of court. If you are interested in an uncontested divorce, we can help you keep conflict to a minimum as we advise and represent you throughout negotiations with your spouse. However, if this is not possible, we also have the experience to litigate on your behalf in court and make the strongest possible case for your desired terms.

Schaumburg Lawyer for All Aspects of Your Divorce Resolution

Depending on your situation, your divorce may primarily involve financial and property concerns, or it may also include crucial considerations regarding your children. We can help with all important parts of your divorce order, including:

  • Property division - We work to ensure a fair distribution of marital assets by helping you take stock of your financial resources and needs and develop a thorough understanding of your spouse's financial situation. We can help you protect your non-marital property, negotiate for an equitable share of marital property, and divide complex properties like retirement accounts, real estate, and businesses.
  • Spousal support - When your case calls for it, we help you pursue spousal maintenance or alimony to provide for your needs after the divorce and give you time to pursue education, employment, or other means of supporting yourself. If your spouse is seeking alimony, we can represent your interests to ensure your payment obligation is fair.
  • Parenting time - When deciding on a schedule of time that your children will spend with each parent, it is important to consider not only your own needs but also your children's best interests. We can help you negotiate for parenting time that allows you to be with your kids on a regular basis, and when necessary, pursue restrictions on the other parent's time to safeguard your children's well-being.
  • Parental responsibilities - Another crucial aspect of the parenting plan is the allocation of significant decision-making responsibilities between parents. We can help you determine how best to communicate with your co-parent and work together to make decisions about your children's education, extracurricular activities, health care, religion, and other issues that have a major impact on their lives.
  • Child support - Whether you are the likely paying spouse or receiving spouse, we can help you ensure that child support is calculated with consideration for your financial situation and all of your children's needs, including the costs of basic care, education, health care, child care, and more.
  • Post-divorce modification and enforcement - In the years following your divorce, we can help you legally modify the terms of your order related to child support, spousal support, parenting time, and parental decision-making. We can also represent you in a petition for enforcement of the order when your spouse fails to comply with it.
