Child support and maintenance (alimony) are highly litigated issues during a Riverwoods divorce or paternity legal case. The State of Illinois has reformed prior child support and maintenance law. There are many factors which can lead a Court to grant or deny a petition for maintenance or child support. If a Court grants a petition for child support or maintenance, an amount has to be calculated. A skilled Riverwoods divorce attorney can help you obtain a favorable child support and maintenance amount or can advance arguments in favor or denying a petition for child support or maintenance.
An Order of Protection is a powerful tool which can protect you or your loved ones from further emotional or physical abuse. Order of Protection hearings are highly fact specific and specialized and require attention to detail regarding events in which you were involved. It is our job to make sure the court is aware of every fact and scenario which needs to be considered in deciding your case. There is no cookie-cutter approach to an Order of Protection hearing and no two cases are ever alike. You can rest assured that your voice will be heard and your side of the story portrayed to the court.
As the preeminent Illinois divorce law firm serving the Riverwoods area, our attorneys understand that divorce litigation can be filled with uncertainty. In order to maintain financial stability during a divorce, we recommend that you and your partner enter into a premarital agreement (agreement prior to marriage) or postnuptial agreement (agreement during marriage) which will protect both parties financial interests. These type of agreements are invaluable and worth their weight in gold; however, these agreements must be drafted as to make them binding and to ensure that they will be honored by a Court in the event of a Riverwoods divorce. Please contact us to speak with a Riverwoods attorney regarding drafting a custom premarital or prenuptial agreement.
