Reasons You Need to Hire a Divorce Lawyer
- To protect your legal rights. Divorce can be an emotional and complex legal process, and various laws and regulations govern child custody, child support, alimony, and property division. A local Chicago divorce lawyer can help guide you through the divorce process and, ensure you understand your own legal rights and protect your interests.
- To negotiate a settlement agreement. If you and your spouse can agree on all of the issues in your divorce, your lawyer can help you draft a settlement agreement. A settlement agreement is a legally binding document that specifies the terms of your divorce, including child custody, child support, alimony, and property division.
- To represent you in court. If you and your spouse can not agree on your divorce on your own, your lawyer can represent you in court. A divorce lawyer can help you present your case to the judge and advocate for your interests.
Why Consider Hiring a Reputable Divorce Lawyer
You have children, and you need to make decisions about child custody and child support.
You have a complex financial situation, such as a business or investment account.
You have a spouse who is abusive or controlling.
You have concerns about your spouse hiding assets or alienating you from your children.
You are unsure of your legal rights or how to navigate the divorce process.
Even if you and your spouse are amicable and you have already agreed on most of the issues in your divorce, it is still a good idea to consult with a divorce lawyer to make sure that your rights are protected and that your settlement agreement is fair.
An experienced and top rated divorce attorney will be an invaluable asset for crafting a custody case. While judges typically prefer to develop custody arrangements that provide children with as much access to both of their parents as possible, every family has different needs, schedules, and other everyday concerns that must be addressed in a custody determination. Most custody resolutions will also include terms for child support, which is money paid from a noncustodial parent to a custodial parent each month to account for their child’s basic living expenses.
