DuPage County Family Law Attorneys

Family Lawyers in Naperville, IL

The majority of American children do not live in a "traditional" household with a mother and father in their first marriage. The desirability of that situation is open to debate, but the reality is not. Family law matters--particularly issues with second and subsequent marriages, as well as unmarried parents--are a reality in most area households. These situations have special challenges, and it is very critical to partner with an attorney experienced in these specific matters.

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., we are dedicated to families in DuPage County. Our attorneys understand the unique nature of Illinois family law, and they work hard to deliver cost-effective solutions that protect your family and uphold your legal rights.

Common Family Law Matters

Our experienced professionals routinely handle a number of non-divorce family law matters for clients throughout the area, including:

  • Paternity: This legal process transforms a father into a dad, by establishing financial obligations and securing parenting time.
  • Protective Orders and Domestic Violence: If you are a victim, there are immediate remedies available that can help ensure safety for you and your child(ren).
  • Marital Agreements: These documents can be an important part of a secure relationship, by settling property and inheritance questions before they become sources of conflict.
  • Guardian ad Litem: For various reasons, children may need their own legal representation in some family law matters. Mr. Pesce is certified by the local courts to perform this function.

Pesce Law Group, P.C. has very family-friendly policies, like after hours and weekend appointments, and convenient payment plans.

What We Do

Although we handle many of the same family law issues, we know that every case and client is unique. Our attorneys take the time to listen to you, to gain an understanding of your goals and your needs. Then, we offer competent advice based on our years of collective experience, both in and out of the courtroom.

Typically, most family law cases involve a preliminary hearing to make some interim decisions regarding custody, support, and other issues, a discovery period, a formal or informal mediation, and a final trial or prove-up. Many cases can be resolved amicably, through mediation or by agreement between the parties. Other times, however, a trial is necessary. While the former situation requires a skilled negotiator, the latter calls for an aggressive litigator. At The Pesce Law Group, P.C., we fulfill both these roles. 

Family law issues touch nearly every family in DuPage County, either directly or indirectly. For a free consultation with an experienced and compassionate attorney, contact Pesce Law Group, P.C. at 630-352-2240.
