Oak Brook Family Law Attorney Serving the Chicagoland Area

Legal issues surrounding marriages, families, and children are arguably some of the most critical cases that our legal system deals with. An Oak Brook family law attorney can help you with a variety of family challenges such as paternity, child custody, visitation rights, legal separation, and divorce. They are skilled at providing legal education and options to clients just like yourself. If you are facing any type of legal family issue that needs to be resolved, hire an attorney who can be an advocate for you and your family.

Types of Family Law Cases We Handle

An Oak Brook family law lawyer from the Goodman Law Firm LLC is available to provide you with professional and compassionate representation for the following types of legal cases and more:

  • Divorce—full divorce legal services including assisting with mediation, collaborative divorce, completing and filing paperwork, and more
  • Legal separation—for whatever reason you may not be ready or willing to divorce, and we can help you file and receive orders for a legal separation to protect your rights
  • Child custody and visitation, sometimes referred to as parenting plans—we can help you create a parenting plan that will support the best interests of your children
  • Child support—Paying or receiving child support under Illinois law is essential to the health and well-being of your children, but it can also be a highly contested issue
  • Modifications to child custody or child support—in rare circumstances, one or both parents can petition the court to make changes to their child custody or child support orders
  • Spousal support, also known as alimony or spousal maintenance—this type of support can be essential if one spouse was earning significantly more than the other
  • Paternity— for an unmarried couple who has a child together, it may be necessary to legally establish the child’s paternity in order to resolve other issues such as parenting time and child support

Family Law Often Mixes with Other Types of Law

It’s also important to note that in some cases, family law will intersect with other areas of the law. Domestic violence cases involve criminal law. Divorce cases can cross over into estate planning law. Child custody laws sometimes mingle with immigration and naturalization laws. Whenever necessary, your Oak Brook family law attorney can enlist the expertise of other attorneys and collaborate with them to assist in your legal needs.
