Wood Dale Family Law and Divorce Lawyer

DuPage County Attorney Assisting Families Throughout Northern Illinois

Given the ever-changing makeup of the "typical" American household, family law matters touch nearly everyone in DuPage County, either directly or indirectly. In a few cases, there is a marriage dissolution, and both parties move on. However, in the vast majority of situations, issues like child custody, child support, visitation arrangements, and spousal support are essentially ongoing and, in some cases, seemingly never ending. The challenge in all these situations is to find solutions that are both flexible enough to adapt to changing situations and rigid enough to be both predictable and enforceable.

The professional team at Pesce Law Group, P.C. is committed to cost-effective solutions in area family law disputes. In most cases, the orders that the judge signs encompass a wide variety of situations to help facilitate cooperation and co-parenting. At the same time, the expectations for each side are quite clear, as are the penalties for non-compliance. You do not tolerate excuses for missed weekends and late child support payments, and neither do we.

When legal issues flare up, it is critical to have both solid legal advice and aggressive representation in court. We provide both these things in areas like:

  • Family Law: While most civil litigation matters have a beginning and end, most family law cases do not work this way. For example, child custody and child support disputes typically continue until the children reach 18. Sometimes they linger even longer, if there is unpaid support past due or if there are post-secondary schooling expenses to divide. Other family law matters, like grandparent access, premarital agreements, and paternity, are much the same.
  • Divorce: Simply put, there is no such thing as a "simple" or "routine" divorce. All these cases involve complex legal and financial questions, such as the proper legal procedure for obtaining the marriage dissolution, child support, child custody, and the division of marital property and debt.

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., we firmly believe that there are no shortcuts to success, so we diligently begin work on your legal matter from day one. Our ultimate goal is to champion your legal and financial interests.

Outline of a Family Law Case

Once the petition is filed and served, the judge normally enters interim orders on issues like property division, financial support, and the behavior of the parties. Not so long ago, these hearings were simply brief formalities, but now they may have a tremendous bearing on the case's eventual outcome.

Subsequently, the parties exchange relevant information during court-supervised discovery. In many contested cases involving minor children, the judges will order social studies, refer the case to mediation, and appoint guardians ad litem to represent the children and speak for them in court. Typically, the parties reach an out-of-court settlement. If a trial is necessary, it takes place before a judge without a jury.

For assertive representation based on sound legal strategy, contact Pesce Law Group, P.C. at 630-352-2240 for a free consultation. Convenient payment plans are available.
