Can you avoid losing your business during a divorce?

If you and your spouse are seeking a divorce in the state of Illinois, you may have already begun to think about the list of important decisions you need to make in the coming months. Often, you may be faced with choices to make regarding child custody, spousal support, relocation and separation of assets. If you and your spouse own a business together, you will face an even more complicated future as you work to protect your company and avoid losing it all as the result of separating from your partner. 

Do you need an attorney when you sell your home?

Your house in Illinois is more than a home; it is an investment. While selling it can be emotional as you pack up the memories and prepare to move, it can also be an opportunity to maximize the return on the investment. According to the Illinois State Bar Association, a real estate attorney is an essential part of your team.

If you cannot pay your child support payment

As the noncustodial parent, you have been making your child support payments regularly since your divorce was finalized in Illinois. However, you suddenly find yourself unable to make the payments. We at the Essig Law Office understand that the state has protection in place for those whose altered circumstances mean they cannot pay the original child support amount.

Is your family hoping to move forward with stepparent adoption?

Many Illinois families grow and expand through adoption. There are a few different types of adoption, and in your case, you may not want to adopt domestically or internationally, but to adopt your stepchild. If you are looking to take this step and adopt the biological children of your spouse, it is helpful to understand how this process works.
