Chicago Family Law Attorney
People who are going through divorce can let their emotions take over the process, resulting in added stress and higher legal costs. At the law offices of Jay A. Slutzky, Attorney at Law, I will help you obtain an amicable settlement if that is possible. However, if your spouse is hiding assets, undervaluing property and avoiding a fair settlement, I have the experience to fight for you and help you obtain everything to which you are entitled.
I have over 40 years of experience determining the value of your marital property such as financial accounts, pensions, securities and deferred compensation plans, as well as businesses and real estate that may contain a mix of separate and marital property. From my office in Niles, Illinois, I represent men and women throughout Chicago and the north and northwest Chicago suburbs. If you think that divorce is inevitable, you should contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to protect your financial interests.
Protecting the Best Interests of Your Children
Divorcing spouses with children often let their egos and worries about their own futures take priority over the needs of their children. As your lawyer, I will help you keep the focus where it belongs: on the best interests of your children.
In making any child custody, visitation and support decisions, Illinois courts will be concerned about what is best for the children, not what is best for the parents. While some parents go into divorce wishing to have sole custody of children, Illinois courts favor joint child custody unless there is a strong reason not to.
For most people, a negotiated or mediated child custody and visitation arrangement will mean fewer complaints and disagreements after the divorce. Divorce is more than just the end of a marriage relationship. It is also the beginning of a new relationship for the ex-spouses and children.
Offering a Wide Range of Family Law Services
Beyond divorce, I advise clients in a full range of family law issues such as:
- Modification of child support and child custody
- Prenuptial agreements and estate asset protection
- Relocation of a child by a custodial parent
