Our goal is to provide you with courteous, direct family law counsel and service.

  • Allocation of parental responsibilities — Our Chicago family lawyers help you negotiate all aspects of custody and allocation of parental responsibilities, including custody orders, parenting time rights and parenting plans.
  • Child support — The state gives the courts a formula to follow, but we know where the court has discretion and can help you with legal child support strategies that ensure payments are fair and tax-efficient.
  • Civil unionsCivil unions are handled nearly identically to divorce.
  • Orders of protection — We help victims of domestic abuse and violence obtain orders of protection and emergency orders of protection.
  • Premarital and postnuptial agreementsPremarital and postnuptial agreements are sensible ways to ensure certain issues and assets will be handled in the event of either a partner’s death or the dissolution of your marriage or civil union.
  • Paternity rights — Unwed parents have a right to establish the paternity of a child born out of wedlock.
