The field of family law encompasses a wide range of legal issues relating to marriage, divorce, and child custody. These are naturally delicate subjects.

Family Law Services of All Kinds
There aren't always contested court sessions in family law cases. Indeed, at the Law Offices of George M. Sanders, P.C., one of our primary priorities is to minimize unnecessary litigation. Chicago family law attorneys know that a divorced or estranged couple can usually agree on the majority, if not all, of the terms of their separation. We also recognize that each case is unique and that each family situation presents distinct issues that must be addressed.
Here are some of the areas of family law where our Chicago family law attorneys can assist you:
Legal separation: Some spouses decide to live apart without obtaining a divorce right once. This is known as "legal separation," and the parties can form a court-enforceable marital separation agreement in Illinois.
Divorce: A divorce is a legal proceeding in which one spouse tries to end a marriage. For at least six months, the parties are usually forced to live separately and apart.
Child Custody and Child Support: If the parties cannot reach an agreement on the issues of child custody and child support, a judge must make the final decisions. Even if the parties reach an agreement, their choices must be approved by the court. When assessing proper custody arrangements, a court will consider what is in the "best interests of the child," and Illinois has particular legislative criteria in place for calculating child support.
Prenuptial dissent: While no one enters a marriage expecting it to fail, many couples prepare for the worst by signing a prenuptial or premarital contract. These agreements can handle some financial concerns before a separation or divorce, but they cannot address child custody or support issues.
Orders of Protection: Unfortunately, there are times when marital or familial strife threatens to escalate into violence. You can ask an Illinois judge to grant an order of protection for you and your children if you are in fear of impending harm.

Nobody wants to talk about their family's issues in front of a court. Similarly, you should never be hesitant to use the legal system to assert your rights and advocate for your family's best interests.
