Types of Divorce Cases in Illinois

Our attorneys understand that no two divorce cases are the same. Each case involves a unique set of facts and circumstances that must be given individual attention. When a divorcing couple is able to work together and communicate, an amicable or uncontested divorce may be possible. If communication between the spouses is extremely difficult due to allegations of domestic abuse, infidelity, or other sources of conflict, litigation may be the best option for obtaining a favorable outcome. Our lawyers have the background and resources to help you negotiate an amicable settlement with your spouse, but we are also experienced litigators who will be aggressive in court when necessary. We also handle annulments and legal separations in appropriate situations.

Financial Implications of Divorce

According to relationship experts, money is a common point of contention in many marriages, and financial disagreements are a leading cause of divorce in the United States. Disputes over money and property in a divorce can result in contentious proceedings that can drag on for months or even years in limited cases. At McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C., we are equipped to help find creative solutions to the financial-related issues that you and your spouse may be facing, including but not limited to:

Our attorneys understand that financial matters in a divorce can be extremely complicated. With this in mind, we work hard to simplify the process and provide you with the most favorable results to which you are entitled.

Kane County Counsel for Divorcing Parents

If you and your spouse have children together, the challenges associated with your divorce may be compounded. When children are involved, you will need to consider their well-being and best interests in addition to your own. Under Illinois law, you and your spouse are encouraged to continue working together to raise your children, even after your divorce is finalized. To do so, you will need to develop a parenting plan that outlines your arrangement for sharing parental responsibilities—previously called "child custody" in Illinois. Your parenting plan must also contain a schedule for parenting time, formerly known as "visitation," as well as provisions for how to handle an intended relocation (formerly removal) by either parent.

The skilled attorneys at McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. can help you draft a reasonable parenting plan that both protects your rights as a parent and serves the best interests of your children. We also provide skilled guidance in all proceedings related to child support, including basic child support calculations, extraordinary expenses for your children such as childcare, extra-curricular activities, uncovered medical, and school expenses, and non-minor support for college costs (also known as 513 expenses).
