DuPage County Lawyers for Divorce and Dissolution Matters

Statistics and interpretations vary, but there is no doubt that divorce is much more common today than it was a generation ago. Whenever a family is in transition, a court must enter orders regarding complex property division, parental responsibilities, and child support, so that all parties involved can move forward with their lives. Illinois law dictates that parental responsibilities (child custody) and support orders be made in the best interests of the children, and the parties often disagree about what is "best." Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, there must be an equitable property division, which is not necessarily the same thing as an equal division.

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., we provide thoughtful and aggressive representation in divorce matters. Moreover, we provide both litigation and non-litigation solutions while protecting your legal and financial rights. We also offer non-divorce family law services, including premarital agreements.

Dissolution of Marriages and Civil Unions

If your relationship is ending, your financial, legal, and emotional situation can change in an instant. At Pesce Law Group, P.C., it is our mission to introduce a measure of certainty into your life. We offer services including:

  • Divorce: We deal with both marriage and civil unions, because both are very similar. In both instances, there is property to be divided, a legal status to update, and quite possibly children who need financial and emotional support. Both contested and uncontested divorces typically, although not always, involve alimony and spousal support/maintenance issues.
  • Child Custody: Recent updates to Illinois law have renamed child custody as the allocation of parental responsibilities. In most cases, the law favors joint parenting arrangements, which means both parents share in the legal decision-making responsibilities. It is important that the provisions for child visitation, now called parenting time, be both straightforward and workable, to help ensure predictability and stability to the greatest extent possible. Many children have special needs either emotionally, physically, or educationally, and these needs must be accounted for in the final decree.
  • Complex Divorce: Some attorneys shy away from high net worth divorces or actions involving mental health and addiction, but at Pesce Law Group, P.C., our seasoned professionals are up to the challenge. We can help equitably divide property, regardless of the value of the estate. If there have been issues with waste or dissipation, we help ensure that the responsible party faces the appropriate consequences.
  • Inheritance: In a second or subsequent marriage, a step-family can create significant issues with your proprietary and personal legacy.

We provide both experienced counsel and aggressive representation in your divorce case.

Divorce may be inevitable in some situations, but it does not have to be financially or emotionally expensive. For a free consultation with experienced divorce lawyers, contact Pesce Law Group, P.C. at 630-352-2240.
