Lawyers Helping Divorcing Spouses Protect Their Rights and Achieve Their Goals in Wheaton and DuPage County

Ending your marriage can be a complex and difficult process. Dealing with personal conflict with your spouse, the emotional trauma that comes with the end of a long-term relationship, and the need to find new living arrangements can be hard enough. In the midst of this upheaval, you will also need to settle multiple different types of legal and financial issues, including ownership of property, arrangements for custody and care of children, and much more. Getting a handle on everything that will need to be addressed can seem overwhelming, which is why it is crucial to work with a family law attorney who can explain your options and provide you with dedicated representation throughout the legal proceedings of your divorce.

We will work closely with you, helping you make informed decisions that will allow you to accomplish your goals and move forward. With over 12 years of experience in divorce and family law, Attorney Nicolas Nelson will advocate for your interests and help you reach a positive outcome in your case.

Legal Issues to Address During a DuPage County Divorce

Legally dissolving your marriage will require you and your spouse to separate all aspects of your lives, and you may also need to make arrangements to determine how certain issues will be handled going forward. You may be able to complete an uncontested divorce in which you and your spouse reach a settlement outside of court, but if you cannot reach an agreement, a divorce trial may be necessary. In either case, our attorneys can provide you with the legal representation to help you achieve positive results.

During your divorce, you will need to address some or all of the following concerns:

  • Child Custody/Allocation of Parental Responsibilities - If you and your spouse have children together, you will need to create a parenting plan that states how you will divide or share decision-making responsibilities for your children.
  • Parenting Time - Your parenting plan will also include a schedule for the time your children will spend with each parent on a daily basis and on special days such as holidays, vacations from school, and parents' or children's birthdays.
  • Child Support - Both you and your spouse will have the obligation to support your children financially. Child support is calculated based on the income earned by both parents, and each parent's amount of parenting time may also be a factor that is considered in these calculations. As divorced parents, you and your ex will also have the obligation to contribute to your children's college expenses.
  • Spousal Support - If there is a significant difference between the amount you and your spouse earn, one of you may be required to provide financial support to the other for a period of time following your divorce.
  • Division of Property and Debts - All of your marital assets, including physical property, financial accounts, real estate, retirement accounts or pensions, and debts, must be fairly and equitably divided between you and your spouse.
  • Post-Judgment Modifications and Enforcement - In the years following your divorce, you may need to return to court to update your divorce decree based on changes in your, your ex's, or your children's lives, or you may need to take legal action to make sure your ex is meeting their court-ordered requirements and obligations.
