Divorce and Family Law
The most common area of family law involves the legal process of ending a marriage, known as a divorce. It is a complex process and can involve a variety of issues, including property division, child custody, and spousal support. A divorce attorney can help you navigate the legal aspects of this important life event so that you can focus on settling your case without stressing out about the impact on your future.
Prenuptial Agreements and Estate Planning
Before a couple gets married, they often make agreements that detail how the property will be divided should their marriage end in divorce. A family lawyer can help you ensure that these agreements are legally binding and that you and your spouse will be able to benefit from them should you decide to separate in the future.
Grandparents’ Rights and Adoption
Following a divorce or the death of a parent, grandparents can find themselves facing many challenges as they try to establish visitation rights with their grandchildren. The attorneys at Anderson & Boback understand how complicated this can be and are ready to assist with any legal issues that you may face.
Father’s Rights and Adoption
As a father, you are entitled to certain rights and protections under the laws of Illinois. These include the right to claim custody of your children and visitation with them. In addition, you can claim support if your ex-spouse does not pay you enough money or is denying access to your children.
Custody, Visitation, & Support Options
When couples have been together for a long time and the children are well-established, there is little chance that they will be unable to come to an agreement on any of the important aspects of parenting. In most cases, these agreements can be settled out of court with the help of a family lawyer.
Some couples also choose to resolve their differences through a process called collaborative law, which is typically conducted outside of the courts and usually involves several problem-solving procedures. This is often a cheaper and more efficient way to resolve the various issues involved in divorce and custody cases, and it can be beneficial to both parties.
