Oak Park Family Law Attorney

Cicero family lawyer for paternity and adoption

Law Firm Assisting With Adoption and Paternity in Chicago and Cook County

Entering a family court can be an intimidating experience. Family law cases can affect the relationships between parents, children, and others for years to come, or even for the rest of a person's life. As you approach these types of legal issues, you may feel like you are being buried in an avalanche of questions, worries, and emotions. If you want to achieve the best results that will allow your family to thrive, you need an experienced attorney on your side.

The law firm of Wakenight & Associates, P.C. has a combined total of more than 95 years of experience, and we have successfully represented clients in a multitude of family law situations. Whether your case is simple or complex, we can ensure that your rights are protected, and we will advocate for your interests and help you understand the best path to take to reach a positive outcome.

Addressing Family Law Concerns

Legal disputes or requests related to family members such as spouses, parents, children, or grandparents can occur in a wide variety of situations, including:

  • Adoption - Expanding your family by adopting a child can be a joyous experience, but prospective parents must follow specific legal procedures and meet a large number of requirements. Our lawyers can ensure that the necessary steps are followed throughout the adoption process.
  • Paternity/Parentage - When a child is born to unmarried parents, certain steps must be followed to ensure that the child's father is recognized as a legal parent. We can help establish paternity for a child and settle any resulting issues related to child custody or child support.
  • Child-Related Issues - If a child's parents are not married, it is important to create a parenting plan that specifies how parental responsibility (also known as custody) will be shared, when the child will spend time with each parent, and the child support each parent will be obligated to provide. Our attorneys can help resolve these issues, and we can help protect the rights of fathers and stay at home parents.
  • Divorce - Spouses must meet a variety of legal requirements before their marriage can be legally dissolved, including dividing marital property and determining whether one spouse will pay spousal maintenance to the other. We can help you resolve any outstanding issues, including addressing complex matters involved in high net worth and high conflict divorce cases.
  • Emergency Situations - If you or your children are in danger of harm because of domestic violence or domestic abuse, you should understand your legal options for ensuring your safety. We can help you obtain an order of protection against an abusive spouse, a partner or former partner, or another family member.
