We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

About Family Law Attorney in Arlington Heights:

Arlington Heights Law Firm Divorce Attorneys

Navigating the complexities of family law can be challenging, especially when dealing with sensitive issues like child custody and child support. At our Arlington Heights firm, our experienced family law attorneys provide sound legal advice and personal attention to guide you through the divorce process. From the initial stages of the legal process to resolving intricate legal matters, our dedicated divorce attorneys are committed to offering comprehensive support. We understand the emotional and legal troubles that affect you and your family members during these times. Trust our skilled family attorney team to help you achieve the best possible outcomes with compassion and experience.

Property and Debts: The Financial and Emotional Maze

Divorce involves dividing assets and debts, a process that goes beyond numbers to personal aspects of your life. In Illinois the goal is an equitable division of property but achieving that means considering each party’s contributions, marital property and non-marital assets and how assets can become commingled. Our attorneys can untangle this mess and get you a resolution that respects your financial and emotional investments.

  • Considerations include property ownership, non-marital assets and how to address commingled property.

Child Support and Parental Responsibilities: Fairness and the Children’s Best Interests

Child support in Illinois follows the income shares model, taking into account the income of both parents, the needs of the children, and the shared parenting time. Beyond financial support, the allocation of parental responsibilities (formerly known as custody) is a critical part of family law that requires a deep understanding of legal and family dynamics. Our team can navigate these areas and always get you an outcome that’s in the best interest of the children.

Parenting Time and Spousal Support: Equity and Needs

Creating a parenting time schedule that works for everyone, especially the children, can be tough. We look for solutions that allow for meaningful relationships while respecting the logistical and emotional realities. Spousal support requires a nuanced approach to balance the financial needs and capacities of both parties, based on the latest Illinois laws.

Domestic Violence: Safety and Rights Sensitive

When domestic violence is involved in family law cases it requires a careful and informed approach to protect the safety and rights of all parties. Our firm has the experience to navigate these situations, whether it’s to get protection for the victim or address allegations within the divorce and custody case.

What to Expect: The Arlington Heights Divorce Process

Strategic Thinking in Filing

The timing and way you file for divorce can have big implications on your case, from living arrangements to custody decisions. Our strategic guidance will help you make informed decisions that are in your best interest and legal goals.

The Discovery Phase: Laying the Groundwork for a Fair Outcome

Discovery is the stage where the parties exchange detailed information about their finances and other relevant parts of the case. This process can be complex but is critical to make sure all decisions are made with all the facts. We navigate this phase with attention to detail and protecting your interests.

Mediation and Settlement: Getting to a Good Outcome

Many family law cases are resolved through mediation, a process that promotes agreement and can speed up the resolution of your case. Our attorneys are trained in mediation techniques and will advocate for solutions that protect your rights and relationships and get you to a good place.

In Arlington Heights, our firm is a guiding light for those navigating the choppy waters of family law. With compassionate representation and smart legal thinking, we can help you through every step of the process and make sure your voice is heard, and your rights are protected.

Benefits of a Comprehensive Law Firm in Arlington Heights Illinois

Our family law attorneys and paralegals have extensive experience handling the nuances of your legal matter but also consider how other areas of law might affect your case. We often consider angles that aren’t obvious to an attorney with experience in only one practice area. 

A Law Firm that Handles Simple and Complex Cases 

Some legal issues are quick, requiring fast efficient services. You want those knocked out fast with the most efficient cost possible. But, for more involved cases, we take the time to get it right and work hard to get the outcome you want. 

A Team That Collaborates on Your Case in Cook County

We’ve had many legal clients complain that their last firm just didn’t have the resources or understanding to manage their case. Our attorneys regularly communicate across the firm, getting input from several legal professionals without the additional cost. Please think of us as your legal community who is ready to represent clients in any legal matters that may arise.

Open Communication 

No one wants to be sitting in the dark, unsure of what’s going on with their case. Part of our core practice model is to regularly update our clients on the status of their case. 

Relationships Built on Trust and Communication 

Dealing with legal issues can be stressful. You don’t need added stress from an attorney who is slow to communicate and hasn’t given you a clear plan to resolve your case. Trust comes from knowing your attorney has your back and best interests in mind. 

Competitive Fees with Excellent Service in Arlington Heights, IL

We are not a free legal aid firm. We pride ourselves on offering top-tier service at a competitive local price. Legal solutions cost money but putting them off only leads to more headaches and financial problems.  

A Story About Compassion:

In Arlington Heights, IL the Johnsons were facing a tough situation. After years of marital problems, Sarah and Michael decided to get a divorce. Their main concern was their 2 young children. Sarah wanted full custody, she thought it was best for the kids, while Michael wanted joint custody so he could still be involved in their lives.

Feeling overwhelmed by the legal and emotional stress Sarah reached out to our firm. Our family law attorneys gave her clear advice, so she understood every step of the divorce process. We worked to mediate between Sarah and Michael and emphasized the importance of them being cooperative for the kids' sake.

We handled all the legal aspects of the case including child custody and child support. We gave Sarah personal attention and kept her informed every step of the way. Our goal was to minimize the stress on the family and get a fair and amicable result.

In the end, Sarah and Michael agreed to a joint custody arrangement that put the kids first and a fair child support plan. Thanks to our divorce attorneys the Johnson family came out of the legal mess with a balanced and positive outcome for all.

Our Cook County attorneys want to get you the best outcome possible. Our extensive experience allows us to help with your divorce process, child custody battle, and many other legal needs. Give us a call today!
