Family Law Lawyers Serving Clients in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Downers Grove, Hinsdale, and Neighboring DuPage County Areas

Family law is a broad area of law that covers Illinois divorce, legal separation, paternity/parentage proceedings, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, spousal support (i.e. alimony), child support, marital property distribution, child custody and visitation, and divorce decree modifications and enforcement.

In many cases — including those that involve divorce, alimony, custody, and property — parties can come to an agreement which is later memorialized into an order. A court or judge may step in and become involved only when some or all of these issues are disputed.

If you are currently beginning or are in the midst of a separation, divorce, paternity case, or custody proceeding or dispute, the experienced family law attorneys at Nigohosian & Dahlquist, P.C. can assist you with your case. When you contact our office, one of our attorneys will discuss the facts and circumstances of your case with you. We will review all of your legal options and provide you with aggressive, thorough representation throughout your entire case. Our legal knowledge and experience allows us to litigate efficiently and effectively.

Illinois Divorce Law

Divorce proceedings can be stressful. However, having the right family law lawyer on your side can help to streamline the process. Often, issues need to be resolved before a divorce can be finalized, including child custody, spousal support, the division of property, and whether one parent will pay the other parent child support. Due to the way in which these issues are resolved and how they can have a significant impact on your life, the protection of your rights is critical. Therefore, the first step is to retain a lawyer.

Illinois Spousal Support

Spousal support, otherwise known as alimony, is available to the recipient spouse so that he or she may continue to maintain the same standard of living post-divorce. In Illinois, a court may award alimony on a temporary, short-term, or long-term basis.

Illinois Property Division Law

In Illinois, virtually all property and debts acquired during the course of a marriage are considered marital property or marital debt. Illinois is an equitable distribution state and provides for the equitable and fair distribution of all marital property and all marital debts. Our experienced Illinois family law attorneys can help you come to an agreement with your spouse regarding marital property and/or resolve a marital property dispute in court.

Illinois Child Support, Custody, and Visitation

When a marriage produces children, then child support, custody, and visitation must be addressed as part of the divorce proceedings. Illinois courts look to the Best Interest of the Child Standard, as well as the Illinois Child Support Guidelines, when making child support decisions.

Illinois law provides for both joint and sole physical and legal custody arrangements. Courts also look to the best interests of the child when making decisions about child custody and visitation.
