Divorce and Family Law Attorney in Addison, IL

Experienced DuPage County Divorce Lawyer

Regardless of how the numbers are analyzed, the divorce rate in Illinois is much greater today than it was a generation ago. At the same time, families which were once considered "non-traditional" are becoming more and more commonplace. Some examples include grandparents raising their grandchildren, single parents with children, same-sex couples, and heterosexual couples with step-children. All these families must overcome unique legal, financial, and emotional obstacles.

Assertive Pesce Law Group, P.C. attorneys believe that the best approach to these issues is a measured tenacity. While an attack-dog mentality is almost never successful and often counter-productive, an aggressive approach is best, because many important decisions are made very early on in divorce and family law cases. In other words, by standing up for your legal and financial rights today, we help ensure a better tomorrow for you and your family.

A Proactive Approach

The ancient poet Virgil once said that "audentes fortuna iuvat," or "fortune favors the bold." That approach was effective in Rome 2,000 years ago, and it is effective in Addison today. We put this philosophy into motion in matters like:

  • Divorce: Regardless of how long the couple has been married, how many material goods they have, and how many children there are, marriage dissolution nearly always involves complicated legal and emotional questions regarding property division and child custody.
  • Family Law: Sometimes, as is often the case with enforcement and modification matters, these cases are extensions of previous divorce proceedings. In other situations, the judge must enter child custody and child support orders in an original proceeding, perhaps related to paternity or a proceeding involving unmarried parents.

Put bluntly, the reason we stand up for your legal and financial rights in these cases is because no one else will, since neither the judge nor the mediator are on your side.

Proven Methods

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., we firmly believe that thorough preparation is the key to a successful result. So, we focus on a few key points in most family law cases:

  • Temporary Orders: This hearing usually takes place after the petition is filed, and the decisions that are made often serve as a blueprint for the final orders in the case.
  • Discovery: The goal in this proceeding--to learn more information from the other party than is disclosed to them--is not an easy one to attain.
  • Mediation: Most judges order contested cases to a pre-trial mediator; mediation is not always successful, but it is nearly always worth a try.

Because we pay such close attention to the details, the results often take care of themselves.
