Skilled Guidance Through the Divorce Process

If you and your spouse have decided to get a divorce, you may be feeling overwhelmed and unsure of where to turn. At The Law Offices of Kenneth M Devaney PC, we're here to take some of the weight off your shoulders and guide you through each step of the divorce process. Moving forward may seem impossible right now, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

The first step in seeking a divorce is to file a "Petition for Dissolution of Marriage." This document will outline some basic information about your marriage and detail the grounds for the divorce. This petition is then served on the spouse who did not file. There are two kinds of divorce in Illinois: uncontested and contested. An uncontested divorce occurs when both spouses agree on all issues involved. In a contested divorce, the spouses are unable to agree on child custody, property division, and more. If you are facing a contested divorce, contact us to ensure your voice is heard.

If children are involved in your divorce, the process will be more complex. A number of decisions will need to be made regarding the custody and financial support of the children. In the state of Illinois, there are two kinds of custody to be determined. Legal custody gives a parent the right to make decisions regarding the raising of the child, while physical custody refers to where the child actually lives. A judge will determine a custody arrangement and child support plan based on the best interests of the child or children involved.

At the end of your divorce case, a judge will issue a divorce judgment that will cover the division of property, custody, and child support. We understand that this process may seem daunting, which is why we'll be by your side to advocate for you every step of the way. We serve all of Lake County, including Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Libertyville, and Waukegan. Schedule a free consultation with us today to start moving toward a brighter future.
