Compassionate Help For Family Law Issues

Divorce is never easy. The legal process is complex and your emotions are likely more complex. If you have children and must come up with a child custody agreement, it can seem overwhelming. But by working with an experienced attorney, you can reduce the stress and be confident that the guidance you receive is accurate.

We Understand Your Family Law Issues

At McSweeney Moore Law Offices, our attorneys understand the complexity of your emotions, and we know how to help you obtain the best possible solutions for all of your family law issues given your specific circumstances.

Our lawyers are compassionate; they understand what you are going through and how to help. You need to know how the law treats your circumstances and your potential options. Questions of child support or determining a parenting plan or an accurate accounting of the property of the marital estate can be more difficult to work through when emotions may cloud your judgment. Our lawyers provide the support you need with careful analysis and experienced guidance, helping you to make informed decisions through every step of the process.

Our firm can help you sort through your options with any divorce in Illinois, including:

  • Child support
  • Allocation of parental responsibilities (formerly known as custody)
  • Allocation of parenting time (formerly known as visitation)
  • Parentage
  • Establishing paternity
  • Post-decree issues and modifications
  • Mothers' and fathers' rights
  • Same-sex divorce
  • Contested and uncontested divorces and maintenance (formerly known as alimony)

We Can Help With Your Child Custody Issues

Child custody issues can be among the most difficult to deal with during a divorce. You want to do what is best for your children, but you also have to reach a consensus with the person you are divorcing. As difficult as it may be, working with your spouse to minimize conflict will benefit your children immensely. Research has found that parental conflict can have a negative effect on children during a divorce and by minimizing that conflict most children can grow and thrive.

Steps to reduce conflict include developing a careful and detailed parenting plan that sets the correct expectations for everything from the residential schedule and decision-making authority of the parents to how to resolve disputes within the parenting plan that eliminate the need to return to court for every issue.
