Chicago Divorce Attorneys

Experienced Cook County Divorce Lawyers

There are a lot of decisions that must be made when going through a divorce, but none is more important than your choice of a divorce attorney. Hiring the best possible legal representation can make a dramatic difference in the outcome of your divorce proceedings. The law office of Anderson & Associates, P.C. is one of the most established and respected divorce firms in the Chicago area. For the last 30 years we have provided our clients with reasoned legal counsel and aggressive representation in divorce matters.

Division of Property in Illinois

One of the primary issues that must be decided in a divorce is division of property. Illinois is an equitable distribution state, which means marital property must be divided in a manner that is equitable, but not necessarily equal. In most cases, the greater the value of the marital estate, the more complex it is to divide the estate in a divorce. Our attorneys are skilled in handling all types of divorces including high asset/complex divorces. We are experienced in working with family businesses and in handling business valuations and maintenance/alimony as well as marital and non-marital property matters.

Child Issues in Divorce

Some of the most disputed matters in a divorce can be those related to child custody and child support. Child issues can become extremely contentious because they involve strong emotions and serious financial consequences. Our attorneys always seek to put the best interests of the child at the forefront of negotiations and litigation. We also strive to protect our clients’ parenting rights and satisfy our clients’ goals and expectations in these areas.

Family Law Alert: As of January 1, 2016, Illinois family laws regarding child custody and visitation have changed drastically. Read more about these updates.

In our experience, the best outcomes are generated when parents are able to work together to reach a mutual agreement on child issues. This preserves harmony within the family unit and lessens the necessity for post decree modification in the future. When this is not possible, however, our attorneys are skilled litigators who are always ready to aggressively represent our clients’ interests and the interests of your children in family court.
