Family Law Cases at the Maywood Courthouse

The Maywood Courthouse serves the Fourth Municipal District of Cook County, which includes Berwyn, Bridgeview, Brookfield, Cicero, Elmwood Park, Forest Park, Maywood, Oak Park, River Forest, Riverside, and Westchester. Family law cases heard at the Maywood Courthouse will typically fall under the oversight of the Domestic Relations division, and these cases include:

  • Divorce - Spouses who are planning to dissolve their marriage may file a petition for divorce or a response to a divorce petition. They may need to appear in court multiple times to resolve issues related to the division of marital assets (including real estate, family businesses, and retirement funds) or determine whether alimony will be paid by one spouse to the other. Same-sex spouses may also file a petition to dissolve their marriage or civil union.
  • Child Custody - During a divorce case, parents will need to create a parenting plan that determines how they will divide parental responsibilities and parenting time. Parents who are unmarried and living separately or married parents who are legally separated may also need to resolve child custody issues. Courts may also need to establish child support obligations and review requests for parent/child relocation.
  • Parentage - If a child's father is not married to the mother at the time of the child's birth, he will not be considered the child's legal parent until paternity is established. A petition to establish paternity may be filed by a mother, a person who believes they are a child's biological father, or another interested party. When legal parentage is established, this will secure a parent's right to parenting time and a child's right to receive child support.
  • Adoption - Adoptive parents will need to meet a variety of legal requirements to complete the adoption of a child. If the adoption is contested, a court hearing in the County Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County may be necessary to determine whether the birth parents' parental rights should be terminated.
  • Orders of Protection - A family member who is in danger of abuse or the threat of violence may receive an order of protection that will limit contact between the abuser and their victims.
