Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

Cost-Effective

When we started our firm in the midst of the recession, we learned to survive in a lean environment and pass the savings on to our clients.  As the economy has improved, we have not changed our philosophy.  We are hungry to grow our client base, and so we have intentionally set our rates below what the market will bear.  Our mission is to make each client walk away feeling that they got more value than they paid for.  This is easier to do when we make our prices affordable.

Client-Focused

The secret to our success as a firm is incredibly simple: we build a personal relationship with each of our clients and treat them with the respect that they deserve.  We pride ourselves on our open lines of communication, frequent check-ins with our clients, and our accessibility.  We are here to help you in any way we can, often leveraging our network of resources to assist you with non-legal issues that you may be having.  We are your one-stop problem-solver and trusted adviser.  All attorneys say that they provide excellent client service, but, unlike other attorneys, we practice what we preach.  We make sure every client walks away happy . . . period.

Comprehensive

We are your community law firm.  Our business is built on long-term relationships with our clients.  Our clients have the luxury of building trust over time with one team of attorneys, rather than having to find a new attorney for each different type of matter that arises over the course of their lives.  No one attorney can be an expert at everything.  That is why we have worked hard to assemble a team of attorneys with extensive experience in different areas of expertise.  Our attorneys work together closely to bring our collective experience to bear on any issue that may arise for our clients.

Great at What We Do

Since our business comes entirely from referrals and community involvement, our reputation for quality legal work is our greatest asset . . . and it is extremely important to us.  Each of our attorneys is truly experienced in his or her practice areas, with the highest personal standards of excellence.  We are proud of our reputation in the community, and we did not achieve it by accident.  Our reputation for excellence comes from hard work, continuing education, and an above-and-beyond approach to our clients’ cases.

How is Child Support Calculated When One Party Has Varying Income

In this article, our Kane County child support lawyers explain the current state of Illinois child support law. Prior to 2017, the amount of child support required to be paid by an obligor parent was a fixed percentage of the obligor's income that varied based on the number of children involved. According to the "income shares" model of child support adopted by Illinois law in July of 2017, the amount of child support the obligor parent is required to pay is based on the obligor's income relative to that of the obligee.

How is Child Support Calculated When One Party Has Varying Income

In this article, our Kane County child support attorneys explain how varying income impacts child support obligations.  The amount of a non-custodial parent's child support obligation is based on the income of each party. This is straightforward when both parties have consistent income like a salary, but the calculation becomes more challenging when one or both of the parties has varying income such as overtime or bonuses. In these cases, courts will either use a historical average or a base child support amount with monthly supplements. In addition, the parties will often conduct periodic "true ups" to ensure the amount actually paid in child support reflects the reality of the parties' income.

Kane County Child Support and College Expenses

In this artilce, our Kane County child support attorneys explain how child support works after the child has reached the age of majority. Child support is mandatory in Illinois until the child reaches the age of 18 or graduates from highschool.  However, courts have discretion to grant child support after this time if the party seeking child support can demonstrate that it is appropriate for things like college expenses.
