Divorce Cases

Frequently, couples have made every possible attempt to salvage their marriage, but permanent separation is inevitable. In such situations, it is strongly advised that you seek the assistance of a legal professional to advocate for you during the divorce proceedings. Regrettably, numerous complications can arise from the termination of a marital union.

If you are facing this situation, our experienced divorce lawyers in Cook County are here to assist you.

Our team of lawyers is dedicated to advocating for unpaid support, resolving property matters, modifying marital settlement agreements or parenting allocation judgments, and addressing other related issues.

Our services involve resolving child support calculations and expenses related to children, recovering overdue support payments, challenging inaccurate arrearage awards, and modifying child support arrangements.
