Child custody and school attendance choice

It is important for children to have access to a safe and effective education. Now that Illinois schools are offering more options regarding education, some parents are divided over which educational options are in their children's best interests. This problem may be particularly tricky for divorced parents who need to decide between online or in-person school, as this issue was likely not addressed in their child custody agreements.

Selling a home during divorce

Owning a home or second house is often one of the biggest investments a person will ever make. While real estate is generally a smart, safe investment, property can be difficult to deal with during divorce. Even Illinois couples who agree to sell a house encounter hurdles throughout the process.

What's really in the best interests of the child in Illinois?

When parents divorce, they want their children to go through the process with the least angst and stress as possible. When each parent has the best interests of the child at heart, they may find it easier to be more civil with each other -- especially in front of their kids. But, what does best interests of the child really mean legally in Illinois?

  • 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.

  • 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!
