Attorneys For High Conflict Divorce Cases in Cook County, Illinois

When your marriage is in trouble, and it seems that divorce may be on the horizon, you are probably struggling to deal with an avalanche of emotions, financial issues, and legal concerns. You may worry about where you will live, whether you will have enough money to cover your expenses, how your children will be affected, and many other questions. While all of this may seem overwhelming, having a dedicated, compassionate attorney on your side can help you address these concerns and set you up for success as you deal with the monumental changes you are facing.

At Wakenight & Associates, P.C., we have more than 95 years of combined experience, and we have represented clients in a wide variety of simple and complex family law cases. We can assist you in overcoming the mountain of issues you must face during divorce, ensuring that your rights are protected and reaching a positive outcome that will allow you to successfully enter the next phase of your life.

Legal Issues to Address During Divorce

No matter how long you were married, you will need to resolve a number of concerns as you and your spouse separate your lives, your possessions, and your finances. We can help you overcome the issues that may arise over the course of your divorce case, including:

  • Child-Related Issues - When spouses have children together, decisions about the allocation of parental responsibility (formerly known as child custody) and parenting time/visitation will need to be made. We can ensure that your rights and your children's best interests are protected in these matters, and we can also ensure that the proper process is followed when determining obligations for child support and other expenses.
  • Spousal Maintenance - A spouse who earns a lower income may request financial support from their spouse during and after divorce. Whether you will be paying or receiving spousal support, our attorneys can make sure the amount and duration of these payments are calculated correctly.
  • Property Division - Illinois law requires marital property to be divided fairly and equitably between spouses. We will ensure that the value of your property is determined correctly while working to negotiate a fair settlement, including determining how to divide complex assets such as investments or retirement plans.
  • High Conflict Divorce - If your divorce is highly contentious, you may be concerned about fair treatment in court, or you may even fear for your safety. In these cases, our lawyers will fight to protect your rights and overcome obstacles related to parental alienation, cheating and infidelity, mental health and substance abuse, or harassment and electronic monitoring. If there is an emergency, we can help you take the necessary steps to receive an order of protection.
  • High Net Worth Divorce - If you or your spouse have large incomes or assets, we can ensure that your financial interests are protected. We will assist in reaching a resolution over the division of real estate, business interests, and family-owned businesses, and we will address your concerns about taxes and hidden assets or income.
