When it comes to family law matters, emotions tend to run high and it’s more important than ever to work with an experienced attorney who can help you deal with the situation. Family law concerns include the following areas: child custody, child support, visitation, paternity, prenuptial agreements, modification of current arrangements, adoption

In dealing with any of these areas, you want to make sure your attorney has the experience to help you manage what you are going through. A family lawyer in Rolling Meadows, IL, can help you understand and manage things as far as time and economics.

Family Law Areas


Divorce is never easy, and the purpose of a family lawyer is to help you get through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. It is also important that your economic situation is considered and protected. Your family will work to ensure you end up with the fairest result possible while protecting the interests of both you and your children. If your divorce is wrought with conflict, your family lawyer should be skilled in such areas as mediation and negotiation. It is always the goal to avoid going to trial, but if a trial becomes necessary, your family lawyer should be an experienced litigator as well.

Modification of Past Orders

Situations change, and when they do, it might become necessary to make changes to past orders. Your family lawyer can help evaluate the situation to find out whether a modification is necessary. Whether it has to do with changes in visitation, custody, or income, your family lawyer can help to evaluate the situation.


In matters of paternity, your family lawyer can both establish paternity as well as other related matters, such as child support and visitation.

Prenuptial Agreements

Your family lawyer can help to ensure your financial interests and personal property are protected prior to entering into marriage.
