Clarendon Hills Divorce and Family Law Attorney

Family Law and Divorce Lawyer in DuPage County

Today, only about 46 percent of children live in a "traditional" household that consists of two married heterosexual parents that have never been divorced and their pure biological children; this number represents a near-reversal from 1960, when the figure was 73 percent. Today's "non-traditional" families, most notably same-sex couples, single parent households, and blended families, must overcome legal, financial, and emotional obstacles that were nearly unheard of 50 years ago. An experienced family law attorney can help these families not only survive, but also thrive, to the greatest extent possible.

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., we meet this goal by working hard. Our simple commitment to our clients is to give our best effort, and our best attitude, every time we pick up the phone, perform legal research, or advocate in court. Because of this dedication, we are often able to produce results that exceed our clients' expectations.

What We Do

With more households made up of divorced adults without children and grandparents caring for their grandchildren, and many more families in transition, to one degree or another, there is an overpowering need for pragmatic advice and aggressive representation in areas like:

Sometimes, traditional litigation is the most cost-effective and emotionally beneficial path towards a long-term solution, while mediation and collaborative law are more appropriate in other circumstances.

How We Do It

As families have evolved, laws and procedures have evolved along with them. Whereas a family law dispute was once governed by relatively straightforward statutes and cases that changed very little over time, there is now a complex web of legislative laws and judicial decisions that sometimes reach conflicting results.

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., it all goes back to our focus. By concentrating on the case at hand and paying attention to the details, we effectively leverage our collective education and experience. In other words, we take nothing for granted.

Although a favorable out-of-court settlement can present itself at almost any time, most litigation matters follow the same path:

  • Filing the Case: The proper paperwork must be filed in the proper court at the proper time, to avoid frustrating and costly delays.
  • Pre-Trial Hearings: The temporary court orders issued in these hearings often serve as blueprints for the final orders in the cases.
  • Discovery: Experienced attorneys can discover as much as possible while disclosing as little as possible, giving their clients an edge.
  • Trial: If this step is necessary, it always takes place before a judge, who serves as both umpire and fact-finder.

Family law has changed, but the formula for success at Pesce Law Group, P.C.--careful preparation and professional insight--remains the same. For prompt assistance in this area, contact us today at 630-352-2240. We serve individuals and families in Clarendon Hills, La Grange, Westchester, Downers Grove, Westmont, and throughout DuPage County.
