River Forest Divorce Attorneys

Wakenight & Associates

Family Lawyers Serving Cook County

If you are a considering filing for a divorce, you may be worried about getting through the process. Mental health experts generally agree that a divorce is among the most stressful events that you are likely to experience in your life, and it is not hard to see why. The skilled attorneys at Wakenight & Associates, P.C. realize that it is impossible to completely eliminate all of the challenges and stress of a divorce, but we can help you take control of your situation. Our team has over 95 years of combined experience in the practice of family law, and we can assist you with managing the avalanche of logistical, spousal, parental, financial, personal, emotional, and legal aspects of your divorce.

Trusted Attorneys for Managing Divorce Finances

At Wakenight & Associates, P.C., we know that ending a marriage through divorce can have a dramatic impact on your financial security. This reality can be especially problematic for those with substantial assets and high net-worth. As you approach the process of divorce, it is important to work closely with a law firm that is equipped to handle large marital estates. Our attorneys have the experience and skills to help you analyze your situation and to develop strategies for dividing your marital property in a manner that protects your rights and serves your best interests. We understand the importance of protecting business interests, real estate investments, and retirement savings so that you have the resources you need to move forward with your post-divorce life. Maintenance, also called alimony, is often a consideration in high-asset divorce cases, and we will work with you in exploring that option.

Child-Related Issues in River Forest

If you and your spouse have children together, your divorce will need to address the allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time, formerly known in Illinois as child custody and visitation. The lawyers at Wakenight & Associates, P.C. can assist you in drafting a parenting plan that meets your children's needs while safeguarding your rights as a parent. We will also represent your interests in proceedings for child support as well.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, a negotiated agreement might not be possible or realistic, especially in situations that involve accusations of domestic abuse, marital infidelity, parental alienation, or addiction concerns. In cases like these, a litigated divorce might be your only remaining option. If litigation is necessary, our lawyers have the courtroom experience and skills to protect your best interests at every stage of the process.
