Illinois high court rules on unmarried domestic relationships

So much has changed in the past 35 years, but the Illinois Supreme Court proudly bucks the trends and fashions, standing firm on common law marriage. More than three decades have passed since the state's high court said in 1979 that it would uphold state policy and law that discourages cohabitation between unmarried partners.

Financial issues that can go boom in divorce for Boomers

  • I cannot even express in words the level of gratitude that I feel. ‘Thank you’ doesn't seem to be enough. Please know that your services and compassion will never be forgotten! I am forever grateful!

  • Thank you so much for your hard work and expertise. I feel as a father in the state of Illinois that what I am trying to achieve is nearly impossible. I am so glad I chose to have your office full of extremely intelligent women represent me.

  • We would like to say thank you for your expertise, education, and kindness when we met with you! Your confidence has helped to comfort us and give us hope that resolution of the issue is possible.

  • I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your time, energy, and efforts you put into our case. Thank you for helping make our son's quality of life better. I cannot tell you how happy we are!
