Many family law matters arise when a married couple decides to get divorced. If you believe that you and your spouse will be able to have an uncontested divorce because you have agreed to all terms concerning property division, child custody, and support, it is still essential to have an advocate on your side. Even uncontested divorces can be complex, and it is important to work with an attorney near you who has experience handling divorces under Illinois law.
Aside from the initial process of filing for a divorce, other important aspects of family law and divorce often concern the distribution of marital property and family support. Property owned by the spouses will be classified either as marital or separate (nonmarital) property. Only marital property is subject to distribution, and it is divided according to a theory known as “equitable distribution.” Courts consider making factors when deciding what an equitable distribution should look like. Family support can include both alimony and child support.
There are also many different family law issues that arise outside the context of divorce. For example, family law includes drafting and enforcing prenuptial (or premarital) agreements. It can also include guardian ad litem matters, as well as child custody and child support when the parents were never married.
