Lake County Divorce and Family Law Attorneys

Serving Lake Forest, Libertyville, Gurnee, Waukegan, and Surrounding Areas

Several years ago, researchers discovered that, for the first time, most American households do not contain a "traditional" family–a married mother and father who are on their first marriage, and their biological children. Instead, most households consist of single-parent families, step-families, same-sex couples, grandparents caring for their grandchildren, and the list goes on. Moreover, given the seemingly endless parade of new court decisions and laws, families will probably be even more diverse in the near future.

Although the attorneys at Pesce Law Group, P.C. continually adapt to the changing landscape, they still employ proven methods to obtain results that exceed their clients' expectations. After all, the goal of family law attorneys remains the same, regardless of what changes may occur. That objective is to protect the legal and financial interests of their clients, and that is a task that we approach with the utmost sincerity. A solid wall is still built one brick at a time, and that is the attitude our professionals take to work every day.

What We Do for Illinois Family Law Clients

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., we proudly limit our practice to the issues that matter most to area families. This focus gives us an edge in both court hearings and settlement negotiations, as we strive to deliver cost-effective solutions that are in the best interests of you and your family. Our specific areas of practice include:

Regardless of the issue, it is very important to partner with a qualified local attorney who can successfully guide your case through the complicated court system.

How We Take Care of You

All divorce and family law matters begin with a petition. This document must be in the proper form, filed in the proper court, and make the proper allegations, to avoid costly delays. In most cases, the judge holds a preliminary hearing to make interim orders regarding custody, support, and other matters.

In the discovery phase, the parties exchange relevant information, such as school records, financial documents, and medical records. In many contested cases, the judge will order a social services evaluation and appoint an attorney ad litem to independently represent the children. If there is no out-of-court settlement, the case proceeds to trial without a jury, and then to any appeals.

The law may change, but the legal challenges that families face remain much the same.
