Background: Illinois Divorce Laws and Proceedings
Divorce Laws in Illinois mandate that proceedings begin by filing a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage in the appropriate state court by a “Petitioner.” The Petition is then served upon the spouse, or the “Respondent.” After receiving the petition, the “Respondent” has 30 days to hire an attorney, file an appearance, or otherwise plea.
The Chicago law firm Anderson & Boback has protected the rights of both the Petitioner and the Respondent in Illinois divorce proceedings for over # years. While a divorce can be traumatic to all those involved, you can reduce stress and anxiety when representation is focused on a fair settlement.
During the negotiation process, Illinois divorce laws give guidelines, options, and rights for marital estate asset division, child custody and child support. However, while it’s important to stay within the bounds of the guidelines, each case is unique. It takes negotiating power and knowledge of what’s possible within the law to get a settlement that’s in your best interest. With their combination of knowledge and expertise, Anderson & Boback have the background to have your back.
