Family Law Attorney Serving Clients Throughout Cook County

Legal issues involving families in Cook County can feel overwhelming, and it is important to have an experienced family law advocate on your side who can help you through any legal matter you may be facing. Most often, clients need help with divorce cases and related matters, such as child support or child custody. Yet family law is a broad area of the law, and it also involves issues like paternity, drafting prenuptial agreements, grandparent visitation rights, and modifications to existing court orders. Many Cook County family law cases are governed by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA), but there are numerous other laws that may come into play based on the particular facts of your case.

Family law in Illinois is complex, but an experienced Cook County family law attorney will be right by your side throughout the process.

Recent Changes to Cook County Family Law

It is important to know that many aspects of Illinois family law have undergone changes recently, including the following:

  • Grounds for divorce have been eliminated (now there is only “no fault” divorce”);
  • Child custody and visitation have changed to “parental responsibilities” and “parenting time”;
  • Child support is now calculated based on the “income shares” model; and
  • Amount and duration of spousal maintenance is now based on a formula for couples who earn less than $500,000.
