Geneva Family Law Attorney

To experience a divorce can be one of the most trying times of a person's life. In addition to the emotional struggles, the legal issues surrounding a dissolution of marriage, such as child custody, property division, alimony/maintenance and child support, can make the road ahead seem daunting. Even an uncontested divorce can have complicated issues that need to be carefully addressed to avoid problems later. If you find yourself facing a divorce, the family law attorneys at the Law Offices of Cooper, Storm & Piscopo understand those problems. We will listen to your concerns and create lasting legal solutions, so you can move on with your life.

The Need for an Illinois Divorce Attorney

There are numerous difficult and complex decisions that need to be made when filing for a divorce. Our attorneys will guide you through the entire process, listen to your concerns and help you understand your options regarding matters such as:

  • Child custody and visitation: Custody and visitation issues will be tailored to your needs through negotiation or litigation, depending upon the circumstances.
  • Child support: Our attorneys can create plans that comply with the Illinois child support guidelines and address immediate as well as future financial matters.
  • Property division: We carefully evaluate all assets and debts to create an equitable agreement that includes consideration of any tax implications and valuation of complex assets, such as professional practices and family businesses.
  • Spousal maintenance: Also known as alimony, there are numerous types of support that can be explained by our divorce attorneys and negotiated into a divorce decree.

Our firm also handles a number of other family law matters, such as:

  • Modification and enforcement: If your divorce settlement is not working, we can petition the court for a modification. If your former spouse or co-parent is not following the court orders, we can alert the judge so proper enforcement measures are taken.
  • Paternity actions: Determining paternity is essential for the future of your child. Our lawyers can file a paternity action and resolve any legal issues that may follow.
  • Prenuptial/premarital agreements: Our attorneys have extensive experience drafting prenuptial agreements that are equitable and give consideration to the financial future of each party.
  • School litigation: We represent the families of students who have been suspended, expelled or forbidden from participating in school activities. Our lawyers will provide counsel throughout every step of the process, file necessary paperwork and attend all hearings and proceedings.

The knowledgeable family law attorneys at the Law Offices of Cooper, Storm & Piscopo consider all settlement options, including alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services. We have resolved some of our most difficult cases through mediation and arbitration. This method is usually more cost-efficient, but never comes at the cost of our client's rights or wishes.
