As a family law attorney with a history of helping my clients overcome the pain of divorce, I understand that you need someone who will take the time to learn about you and your family before creating a divorce strategy. The divorce itself is just one aspect of a comprehensive family law plan. Consideration must be given to issues like spousal support, and the care and support of your children.

I represent clients in Kane County and throughout the area, each one with different needs. Some couples are able to work through the process with very little outside help, while others cannot even be in the same room. Strategies for divorce resolution include

  • Contested divorce: The traditional method of getting a divorce, this option is the most expensive and time consuming, as it involves litigation. This means that not only are agreements argued in court, but the final decisions are made by a judge. This can cause serious turmoil when it comes to property division and child custody matters.
  • Uncontested divorce: Some relationships have simply run their course. The spouses agree on all matters related to property, children and support, and they amicably part ways. This option is inexpensive and expedient.
  • Collaborative law: The collaborative approach works where both parties and their attorneys cooperatively are able to come to an agreed settlement. This usually saves time and money while reducing conflict.
  • Mediation: In this process, the couples meet with a neutral mediator. Generally, there are no attorneys present. This option works best when there are issues that the parties do not agree upon, but they are able to be civil.
