Woodridge Divorce and Family Law Lawyer

Family Law Attorney Serving DuPage County Clients

Precise statistics vary, but there is no doubt that legal divorce is about twice as common today as it was 40 or 50 years ago. The increase in divorce also means an increase in related legal matters, like modifications and custody disputes, due to the nature of a family law case. Most civil claims for damages, like a personal injury case, come to an end. However, while family law actions may be dormant for a few months or years, they rarely "end" in the traditional sense. So, when choosing a family law attorney, it is important to partner with one on a permanent basis, because it is difficult for everyone involved to start over each time the case flares up.

At Pesce Law Group, P.C., we forge relationships with our clients, because that is the most efficient way to do business. It is also easy for us to do, because we live, work, and play in the same communities as our clients. We invite you to visit us in our spacious office so that you can experience the difference for yourself.

Supporting Families in Illinois

We primarily limit our practice to family law, and to other issues that matter most in area households. We are prepared to provide assistance in:

Once finalized, nearly all these orders will need to be legally modified at one time or another. Rather than start over with a new attorney, it is best to pick up where you left off and work with someone who is already familiar with your legal and financial interests.

Proven Methods that Achieve Results

More and more people are moving away from the traditional litigation model to one based on mediation and collaborative law. In many situations, these litigation alternatives significantly reduce legal fees and resolve the immediate situation in a more civil manner. As an added bonus, the compliance rate may be higher, which can mean fewer legal enforcement actions.

That being said, litigation is still the best approach in most circumstances, especially if there is any element of mistrust between the parties. After laying the groundwork at a preliminary hearing, the case moves into the discovery phase and then on to trial. An out-of-court settlement is possible at any time.

Laws and circumstances may change, but our commitment to you does not change. For a free consultation with an experienced family law attorney, contact Pesce Law Group, P.C. at 630-352-2240. Mr. Pesce is a court-certified mediator and guardian ad litem.
