How Divorce Works in Illinois

Experienced Elgin, IL Divorce Lawyers

Divorce, also referred to as dissolution, is one solution to the breakdown of a marriage. Most people use the word separation interchangeably with divorce. Legally, however, they mean two different things. Couples who separate remain married pending any further action, while those who divorce are officially no longer married. How the couple's assets and debts are divided during a period of separation varies by state and the type of separation that occurs.

Every Divorce is Different, We Can Help

In our initial consultation, we discuss your family and your facts – as every divorce case we handle is different. We want to be sure that we know what your goals are, and we will advise you of the process and give you advice on how to proceed; one of our strongest attributes as a firm is our dedication to providing each client with individualized attention.

There may be many steps involved in your divorce case (discovery, temporary support, temporary custody, litigation, negotiation) and we proceed after clear consultation with you. Our firm handles cases involving the division of considerable financial assets.

However, we also regard cases with modest or few assets as equally important. We are also specially equipped to handle complex contested custody cases (also known as allocation of parental responsibility disputes) that may involve several experts including a Guardian ad Litem and psychological evaluations.

Rest Assured with Our Counsel

In sum, Pucci Pirtle will coordinate and handle your divorce case with the utmost care, professionalism, and zeal throughout the entire process of dissolution, including but not limited to the division of marital assets, child custody, child support, parenting time, and maintenance/alimony. These issues can be determined by both parties by settlement, or, if that is not possible, the issues will be brought in front of the Court for a trial.
