If you need a divorce, need to modify a divorce term, have been asked to sign a prenup – or are considering a prenup – or are in a situation in which your children need legal protections, it’s a matter you should discuss with experienced family law attorneys in Schaumburg.
A big part of family law is divorce-related concerns. While your divorce will be specific to the situation you find yourself in, the terms you’ll need to address are the same as those addressed in every other divorce (as applicable), including:
You may be going through a divorce and need to resolve each of these terms, but other common scenarios include:
If your spouse-to-be has asked you to sign a prenup or you think having a prenup in place might be in your best interest, you need the skilled legal guidance of a family law attorney. Both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are contracts that couples execute either at the time of marriage or during their marriage, respectively. In order for these contracts to be binding, they must take each spouse’s rights into fair consideration. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements often address matters like the following:
When Illinois courts make determinations that directly affect children, such as in child custody cases, judges focus on the best interests of the children. Sometimes, the court requires more information in order to make well-considered decisions on behalf of the child involved, and in these cases, a guardian ad litem (GAL) is often appointed. GALs tend to be family law attorneys, but in their role as child representatives, their focus is solely on protecting the rights and best interests of the children they represent.
