Romeoville Divorce and Family Law Attorney

Family Law and Divorce Lawyer in Will County

Most American children do not live in a "traditional" household: a married mother and father who have never been divorced before and their pure biological children. Some "non-traditional" families include blended households, grandparents raising their grandchildren, single parents with children, and adoptive families. These households face unique legal and financial challenges, and while it may be impossible to make these issues go away completely, it is definitely possible to reduce them to much more manageable levels.

Compassionate Pesce Law Group, P.C. attorneys understand the obstacles that Chicagoland families must overcome, whether they are traditional or non-traditional. That is why we take the time to listen to you and learn about your goals in a specific situation. Then, working together, we develop a concrete plan of action that upholds your financial and legal interests.

Planning Your Work

Although the issues that today's families face may be more complex, the legal problem-solving approaches are very much the same, including:

  • Marriage Dissolution: The end of any relationship is nearly always a difficult time, and the financial and emotional issues that accompany divorce, like child custody, child support, and alimony, often make this time even more complex. Pesce Law Group, P.C. attorneys step in and provide effective assistance in these areas and other ones as well, like equitable property and business divisions.
  • Family Law: Unmarried parents must deal with many of the same legal issues as married ones, in addition to ancillary matters, like adoption and paternity. Moreover, special cases require special handling, most notably domestic violence disputes and complex custody matters.

Once the judge enters final orders in the original case, it is normally necessary to have these orders legally modified at least once every three or four years.

Working Your Plan

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., we often use a dual-track approach to problem-solving. While aggressively standing up for your rights in court, we seek to forge a favorable out-of-court settlement that lays the groundwork for effective co-parenting and champions your positions on key issues.

The litigation process typically involves one or more preliminary hearings, at which the judge enters orders that often serve as a blueprint for the final resolution. After a court-supervised period of discovery and disclosure, the case proceeds to trial before a judge and any necessary appeals.

Mediation often takes place in the course of the court case, while collaborative law is a true litigation alternative. Both these pathways involve working together to find mutually beneficial solutions. Mediation and collaborative law are appropriate in many situations as possible ways to control litigation costs, decrease the emotional conflict level, and encourage ongoing voluntary compliance.

In an ever-shifting environment, it is very important to partner with an experienced and local family law attorney. For prompt assistance in any of these areas, contact Pesce Law Group, P.C. at 630-352-2240 for a free consultation. Convenient payment plans are available.
