If you have a legal issue that affects your family, the stakes are so high that it can feel overwhelming. The fact is, however, that you have important rights in the situation at hand that are well worth protecting, and an experienced family law lawyer in Arlington Heights can help you with that.
While divorce, the separate terms of divorce, and post-divorce modifications are common family law concerns, there is a lot more to this considerable arm of the law, including:
Divorce and its terms are common family law concerns, and these terms include:
As more and more couples marry later in life – after they’ve amassed assets of their own – prenuptial agreements have gained in popularity (and in acceptance). These contracts, which are created prior to marriage and go into effect upon marriage, can make the terms of divorce (other than those that address child custody and child support, which must be addressed in relation to the best interests of the children in real time) less challenging to resolve. Prenuptial agreements are also used to protect the inheritance rights of children who were born during prior relationships. Postnuptial agreements are very similar to prenups, but they are created and go into effect while married.
Divorce not only affects the adults involved but also the children. Because the court is always motivated by the best interests of the children in family law cases, it will sometimes appoint a child with his or her own legal representation in the form of a guardian ad litem (GAL). While many GALs are family law lawyers, they fill a unique role in their GAL postings.
