You Don’t have to Go Through Your Divorce Alone

Divorce is difficult, even if you and your spouse both know it’s time to go your separate ways. Ending a long-term relationship is hard enough, but the issues in an Illinois divorce case go far beyond the emotional aspects. Your assets, your finances, and even your relationship with your children could be on the line.

This high stress time often triggers strong emotions, but emotion-driven decisions can hurt. The best way to protect your interests if you are considering divorce or have been served with divorce papers is to work with an experienced Illinois divorce attorney.

He is a Diplomate of the prestigious American College of Family Trial Lawyers, which limits its membership to 100 of the top family law attorneys in the United States.

Our Whole Team is Behind You in Your Divorce Case

Every divorce lawyer at Peskind Law Firm has extensive experience with Illinois divorce cases and related issues such as custody and child support. But, we recognize that each of us has unique strengths that contribute to a successful divorce negotiation or litigation. So, we draw on one another’s skills and knowledge to ensure that you get the best possible representation. No matter which attorney is representing you, you’ll have the benefit of the whole firm’s insights when your attorney thinks it’s useful in your case.

Help and Guidance with All Aspects of Your Divorce

We are a law firm, and our primary responsibility is to represent your legal interests and protect your rights. But, we’ve been representing people in divorce cases for a long time. We recognize that the process isn’t just a clinical legal or financial one. An Illinois divorce has an emotional impact and raises numerous practical issues.

That’s why we have a certified divorce coach on staff to listen to your concerns, help you plan for the future, and avoid pitfalls. She’ll work hard to help you navigate your next steps, avoid pitfalls, and move forward into a brighter future.

We Tackle Complex Financial Issues

In a high-net-worth divorce case, a case where one or both spouses own a business, a case where you’re unsure that your spouse is being honest about finances, or a case involving any other complicated financial issue, it’s especially important to have the right support. At Peskind Law Firm, our attorneys are experienced in handling divorce cases involving complex financial matters, and know how to work with financial experts to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.

We Take the Best Approach for You and Your Family

Divorce can be contentious. Or, it can be resolved amicably. Most divorce cases fall somewhere between complete agreement and full-scale battle. At Peskind Law Firm, we won’t try to push you into an agreement because we don’t want to go to court–our attorneys are seasoned litigators ready to try any divorce-related issue if it’s in your best interest. But, we also won’t stoke conflict to run up fees.

If you and your spouse can come to an agreement, that’s good for everyone–especially if you share children that you will be continuing to co-parent. But, that doesn’t mean giving too much to keep the piece. If it’s in your best interests to fight some or all of the issues in your divorce case in court, we’re here for you.

Every step of the way, we’ll be working toward the resolution you want.
