Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

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.

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.

Recent Changes To DuPage County Divorce Law

Our DuPage County divorce attorneys explain recent changes to Illinois divorce law in the following companion article.

2016 saw several changes to the Illinois Marriage and Defense of Marriage Act (the "IMDMA").  Most of these changes were intended to reduce the likelihood of disputes, and to bring the Act into line with the modern realities of marriage, divorce and parenting.  

The only ground for divorce is now irreconcilable differences, and the required period of living separate and apart is 6 months (this requirement can be waived if both parties agree).  

The terms "custodial parent" and "visitation" have been replaced by "allocation of parenting time and responsibility."   Four categories of parenting responsibility are divided among the parents: educational, religious, extra-curricular, and medical responsibility.

‍Previously, parents were permitted to move anywhere in-state without leave of court, but required court permission to move out of state.  Now the determination is based on distance as opposed to state lines.  Parents can move within 25 miles without a court order, regardless of whether the move is in-state or out-of-state.  A move of more than 25 miles requires permission of court.  Outside of the Chicago metro area, parties can move within 50 miles without leave of court as long as the move is in-state.

Dissipation and Contribution in DuPage County Divorce Cases

In this article, our DuPage County divorce attorneys explain how dissipation and contribution work in Illinois divorce law.  

Dissipation of the marital estate occurs if one spouse uses marital assets for their own improper purposes.  If dissipation occurs, the spouse that dissipated marital assets must refund them to the estate.  Contribution occurs in the context of a divorce case if one spouse used their own personal assets to benefit the marriage.  In these cases, the spouse will be refunded from the marital estate.

Maintenance Awards In DuPage County Divorce Cases

In this article by our DuPage County divorce lawyers, we discuss each of the factors that courts consider in determining whether to award a maintenance award in a divorce case, how much the award will be, and how the award will be paid.  

Maintenance can be paid in a lump sum or continuing payments on a temporary or permanent basis.  As a rule of thumb, divorce courts will try to put the parties in a relatively equal position as close to the standard of living they enjoyed during the marriage as possible.  Some of the most important factors are the duration of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and the sacrifices one spouse made during the marriage for the other spouse's career.
