Divorce and Family Law Lawyer in Itasca, Illinois

DuPage County Attorney Protecting Your Family's Rights

In December 2014, researchers announced that, for the first time, less than half of American children lived in a household with a married biological mother and father who had never been divorced before. This trend is almost sure to accelerate in the years and decades to come. In a related development that has been decades in the making, today's divorce rate is much higher than it was a generation ago. But, while the composition of individual households in DuPage County has changed, the families themselves remain much the same: all people need, and deserve, emotional and financial stability, to the greatest extent possible.

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., our mission is to give area families the tools they need to cope with the legal challenges that life brings. We do this by protecting the legal and financial interests of our clients. In other words, when you partner with us, you are setting the foundation for your family's future success.

Areas of Interest

Family law is what we do at Pesce Law Group, P.C., because we have a passion for helping individuals succeed in any way possible. So, we choose to focus on:

  • Divorce: Legally, the only grounds for divorce recognized in Illinois is irreconcilable differences. After the petition is filed and served, the judge typically conducts a preliminary hearing to make an interim order concerning child custody, child support, property division, and spousal support. During the discovery process, the two parties both engage in settlement negotiations and prepare for trial. Many contested cases also involve a social study and court-ordered mediation.
  • Family Law: In addition to pre-matrimonial matters, like spousal agreements, and post-martial cases, like enforcement and modification matters, family law includes a host of extra-marital situations, like grandparent visitation, paternity decisions and disputes between never-married parents.

We routinely handle all these matters, and more, in both DuPage County and nearby jurisdictions throughout Chicagoland.

Our Focus: Illinois Family Law

In almost any endeavor, the time-honored principle of "plan your work and work your plan" is at least somewhat appropriate, and family law is no exception.

We develop a concrete plan of action by listening to you and your objectives, reviewing the available evidence, applying the appropriate law, and then discussing each possible approach in a business-like manner. Our goal is to achieve the most cost-effective solution possible in any given situation.

Once we establish that plan, we diligently work for you. We continue to accumulate facts in the discovery process, work towards a favorable out-of-court settlement, and champion your point of view in mediation, pre-trial conference, and trial.

A truly successful outcome in a family law case requires a measured approach. For a free consultation with experienced professionals who have a track record of success, contact Pesce Law Group, P.C. at 630-352-2240. After-hours appointments are available.
