Grounds for Divorce in Naperville, Illinois
Divorce laws vary from one state to another, so it is important to hire a lawyer who is familiar with the laws that will apply to you. In Illinois, you can seek either a fault or a no-fault divorce. Some common reasons for finding fault in a divorce include desertion, adultery, cruelty, emotional or physical abuse, or extended drug or alcohol abuse.
When you seek legal representation at the Naperville Law Office of Ken Wang, our team will guide you through the divorce proceedings and address your concerns at each and every point. We will help you with:
- Property division: Illinois is an equitable division state, meaning that property is not divided into equal shares but rather in a manner that the court deems fair.
- Child Custody: Our team can help you decide whether to seek joint or sole custody of your children.
- Child Support: While both parents are required to support the children from the marriage, there are several factors that determine how much each is required to contribute financially.
- Visitation: The noncustodial parent is usually entitled to visitation with the children, but how much and when can vary greatly from one case to another.
- Negotiations include mediation: Not everything requires a judge – in some cases, many of the difficult divorce decisions can be made out of court.
- Alimony / Maintenance: Depending the details of your situation, you may be entitled to receive or required to pay permanent maintenance, temporary maintenance, or rehabilitative maintenance.
- Tax implications: The decisions you make during divorce proceedings can affect how much you owe the government.
