Are You Considering a Divorce?

The divorce process is about much more than simply ending a relationship. There is no one solution for every couple. Whether a couple has been together for a few years or decades, each spouse has invested a significant amount of his or her self into the partnership, from assets and finances, to children and an intimate history. If you are considering a divorce, the qualified family law attorneys at Nottage and Ward, LLP can help you focus on the facts and will fight to ensure that your needs are met.

Do You Need Help Determining Child Care, Custody, or Adoption?

Protecting and raising children is a chief concern for many couples. If you are considering a separation or a divorce, working with an experienced family lawyer will help you come to an agreement about who will be responsible for child care and custody. Many families turn to adoption to complete their family, to protect a partner’s children, or to care for another’s children after a tragedy. If you are seeking solutions to raising your children in a safe and healthy environment, the team at Nottage and Ward, LLP can help you explore the many avenues to keeping your family secure.

Will You Need Spousal Maintenance or Alimony?

In many cases, when a couple divorces, one spouse may be left with little to no financial assets to support his or her basic needs. Illinois law permits courts to order temporary, reviewable, or permanent spousal support to help compensate the spouse in need of financial assistance. This support is provided in the form of income and/or property from one spouse to the other. If you believe that spousal maintenance will be a factor in your divorce, consult with a Chicago family law attorney to build a strong case on your behalf to protect your rights and financial future.

5 Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for

Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for in a very complicated, emotional matter. She has continuously looked out for my best interest and the best interest of my son. She is always prompt in getting back to me and in keeping me well informed about my case.
