Divorce: The Impact on Finances and Family

The outcome of your divorce will have a long term impact on your finances and the raising of children. A divorce is an emotional situation at the best of times. The ability to get matters resolved with regard to the terms of a settlement as quickly as possible can allow you to focus on your new situation, and to deal with the many issues involved in transitioning to a single status. Our Oak Park divorce attorney is prepared to discuss your situation with you and advise you about all of the critical issues in your divorce. There are a number of matters that must be fully resolved, including:

Are you eligible for spousal support? Will you be ordered to pay support? What are your options? These are matters that should be carefully analyzed. Under state law, the duration of payment of spousal support will be based upon the length of the marriage, as well as the earning capacity of each party, and the standard of living enjoyed during the term of the marriage. You may or may not be ordered to pay support, or to receive support. You can find out more about these issues directly by contacting our Oak Park divorce lawyer for an initial consultation. This will allow you to find out about our firm, meet with our attorney, and to get information about what to expect in your divorce, as measured against state law.

Richard Ross Associates is Prepared to Fight for You

Many divorces are fairly simple, as the two parties agree on the critical points, and tend to be able to communicate. In other cases, this is far from the situation. A divorce can be so bitter that every detail, from single possessions to pets is hotly contested, with unreasonable demands, with no ability to compromise. It is not impossible that one party could want to make life difficult after an unhappy marriage and subsequent break up. The legal system has been used for this function by many people in the past, and no doubt will be used again in the future. If you are on the receiving end of this type of activity, you need quality legal help on an immediate basis.

It should be noted that the courts do not look kindly upon such activities. My firm can evaluate the situation and take action to help you get it under control and back on track. You have rights, you have interests, and whether the other party is engaging in all-out warfare or is acting in a more friendly way, these rights and interests must be protected. Our firm can assist you in evaluating your circumstances, reviewing state law and case law that could apply, and in crafting a strategy to protect you and to seek a fair resolution. Every client is served directly by our attorney.

Each person we represent is someone we care about, and that we will work hard for. It takes long hours and dedication to resolve a complex divorce. Our firm is committed to serving each individual with the care, focus and professional skill that is deserved. If you are considering a divorce, or have another family law matter to resolve, we can be contacted for more information, or to schedule a confidential consultation. We take our responsibilities to our clients very seriously, and will do everything possible to resolve your matter in a timely manner so you can move forward with your life.
