Assisting With All Issues Connected To Your Divorce

Your divorce may be causing you a considerable amount of stress. Not knowing what is going to happen throughout the process may weigh on you as things move forward. You can emerge from your divorce process feeling confident about your future.

Since 1981, the attorneys at Ryan Family Law P.C., located in Elgin, have helped people throughout the Fox Valley Area in Illinois obtain sound divorce decrees. Our lawyers use a team-oriented approach, are sensitive to our clients' needs and place a large emphasis on communicating with clients.

Helping You Make Sound Decisions

As divorce attorneys, we provide highly skilled legal counsel and advice. However, our clients still have the decision-making power. We want you to feel in control over your future, and be able to make decisions that leave you in the best possible place after your divorce is over.

We are sensitive to the fact that every divorce is different, and you will have specific needs that you will want to have addressed as part of the process. We create customized divorce solutions for each and every case that we handle. We take a practical approach toward finding answers to many different legal questions, including concerns involving:

  • Division of property: We seek fair and reasonable division of marital and nonmarital property. Marital property includes property, assets and debts that were accumulated during the marriage. Our attorneys adeptly handle the division of marital homes, bank accounts, vehicles, retirement plans, real estate property, investments, business interests, credit card debt and other types of marital property.
  • Child custody and visitation: We take any and all action necessary to ensure that the best interests of your children and your parental rights are protected. We handle initial determinations of child custody, providing quality drafting services regarding custody agreements. We also handle modification and enforcement.
  • Child support: We can ensure the appropriate amount is calculated using state guidelines. Whether you will be paying support or receiving support, we efficiently move through the process to ensure your rights are protected and your children are provided for.
  • Spousal support: Spousal maintenance is awarded on a case-by-case basis. It can be awarded temporarily or permanently, depending on various factors. These factors include the age and health of the parties, earning capacity of the dependent spouse and the ability of the payor spouse to pay maintenance, formerly known as alimony.

We examine all potential approaches that may be available in your case. In some situations, litigating a divorce is an option, but it is not the only option. In McHenry County, mediation is required in nonfinancial matters. In Kane County, mediation is required only in certain situations. Ryan Family Law P.C., offers successful litigation and mediation services. We use the most advisable method for each client's particular situation.
