Family law is a broad area of the law that guides legal matters related to families like yours. If you have a parenting concern, for example, the outcome will be determined by family law. Because you and your children’s legal rights are paramount, seeking the legal guidance of an experienced family law attorney in Naperville is always in the best interest of your family law case.
While family law is a sweeping area of the law, some of the most common categories of family law issues include the following:
While no two divorces are ever exact replicas of one another, they all address the same basic terms, which include:
Other than the division of marital property, each of these terms can also lead to post-divorce modifications.
When the parent who has primary parenting time with the children plans a move, matters related to parental relocation often arise. When both parents are in agreement, the court generally accepts the modification. If not, however, the court will base its determination regarding the parent’s proposed move on the best interests of the children involved.
While prenups and postnups cannot address matters related to child custody or child support (unless the terms exceed court-ordered child support), these legal contracts can spell out how your marital assets will be divided and/or how alimony will be determined in the event of a divorce.
When one family member is harmed by another’s abuse, an order of protection can help protect the victim from further abuse in the following important ways:
Orders of protection can play an important role in breaking the cycle of abuse that arises in some homes.
