When divorce and other family law issues make your life chaotic and uncertain, you want your case resolved as quickly and fairly as possible. Anderson & Boback is a law firm that approaches each case and client as a person—with fears that need calmed and expectations for results that deserve to be met.

The firm is devoted to the practice of family law and specializes in adoptions, divorce (both civil and military), post decree actions, child support (in and out of state), visitation, custody, paternity, and pre-nuptial agreements.

Although the firm is primarily devoted to family law, at times the issues of a family law practice require the advice and representation for criminal complaints. We can assist on those matters, as well.

Through our honesty, efficiency, skilful negotiation and litigation experience, Anderson & Boback has earned a reputation in the legal community—the majority of our cases are referrals from other attorneys and legal resources.

Thorough preparation and aggressive negotiation

With a focus on thorough preparation and aggressive negotiation, Kimberly J. Anderson and Janice L. Boback are models of professionalism in family law. Our attorneys have deep knowledge of the many nuances of Illinois family law, which enables us to resolve cases faster than other firms. In the initial discovery phase, detailed plans of action make the steps that follow easier and quicker to resolve. It’s strategic thinking at the beginning that lead to results.

Much of our success comes from being aggressive negotiators, when the situation demands it. In some cases, once you get aggressive on terms, things get done more quickly and a drawn out trial is less likely.

Experienced and effective litigators

It is less of a burden financially, emotionally, and physically to settle without going to trial. But when out-of-court negotiation does not work, our attorneys are tested litigators.

Broad, exceptional skills and knowledge

Kimberly Anderson excels in Illinois child custody issues. Ms. Anderson has training in collaborative law and has been appointed by the courts numerous times on cases involving adoption and other child-related issues.
Ms. Boback’s background in finance makes her a strong advocate in marital asset division and Illinois child support cases. The unique, complex laws of military divorce is another area of expertise for Ms. Boback.

Both attorneys serve as child representatives throughout Cook County.

Ease of stress and anxiety

We know how stressful and emotionally-draining divorce, child custody, and adoption can be. Often, the most challenging aspect of family law the heavy emotions that weigh on the people effected. Sometimes, a client just needs the comfort knowing someone is there for them, championing their cause. Because of this, our lawyers always keep open lines of communication between the clients and ourselves.
