Navigating Family Law Issues In Illinois

Amidst disputes arising from challenging situations, you need to recognize the value of relationships that are worth saving. Children are often the most affected parties in family law disputes.

For heterosexual and same-sex parents, maintaining a positive co-parenting relationship can lead to better outcomes for their kids. Children who have healthy relationships with both parents are more likely to excel academically, have higher self-esteem and develop stronger social skills.

Our compassionate attorneys are dedicated to helping families during these challenging times. We believe in fostering healthy relationships and guiding our clients toward solutions that prioritize the well-being of all the parties involved.

We guide clients in the following matters:

  • Parenting and child custody arrangements: We can secure arrangements prioritizing the child’s best interests while ensuring both parents maintain a meaningful relationship with their child.
  • Financial support for children: We help parents understand their financial obligations and their rights to child support. This helps ensure their children receive the finances resources they need to survive and thrive.
  • Grandparent and third-party custody: We recognize the importance of maintaining meaningful relationships with extended family members.
  • Establishing paternity: We offer detailed legal assistance in paternity matters, ensuring the child’s rights and well-being are protected.
  • CHINS and DCS cases: We assist parents who are facing inquiries from the Department of Child Services.

Family matters, especially those involving children, can be overwhelming. Our Indianapolis family law attorneys can help you during this process and ensure your children’s rights are protected. Alternatives are also available that may help you avoid going to court.
