DuPage County Divorce Lawyer

Kane County spousal support and child support lawyer

Attorney Assisting With Property Division, Spousal Maintenance, and Child Support in Wheaton, IL

While marriage is based on a loving relationship between two people, it also functions as a legal partnership. This means that when a couple decides to get divorced, they must address certain legal issues involved in dissolving their partnership. Resolving these issues in a manner which protects spouses' rights, financial interests, and relationships with their children often requires the assistance of a skilled family law attorney.

As a former business litigator, Attorney Chuck Roberts understands not only the issues that divorcing spouses must resolve but the financial ramifications of the decisions they make. At Roberts, P.C., we can advocate for your interests throughout the divorce process, working to help you reach a positive outcome that will protect your rights and your financial security.

Experienced Representation in Divorce Cases

During divorce, spouses will work toward a settlement that addresses the legal aspects of dissolving their marriage. We help resolve issues related to:

  • Division of Marital Property - Assets and debts which were acquired after a couple was married must be divided fairly and equitably between spouses. We can help determine what is considered marital or non-marital property and work to reach an agreement on the division of assets such as real estate, investment accounts, businesses, retirement funds, vehicles, and other possessions.
  • Allocation of Parental Responsibility and Parenting Time - We can help divorcing spouses create a parenting plan which addresses how decision-making responsibilities will be divided or shared between parents and the schedules for the time children will spend with each parent.
  • Child Support - Parents' child support obligations are based on both parents' incomes, and each parent's amount of parenting time may also be a factor. We work with parents to ensure that income is reported correctly and child support is calculated according to the guidelines in Illinois law.
  • Spousal Maintenance - A spouse may be obligated to provide financial support that allows their former partner to maintain the standard of living they are accustomed to. We work with spouses to ensure that the amount and duration of spousal support (alimony) is calculated correctly.
  • High Net Worth - If one or both spouses earn a large income or own valuable assets, this can complicate a variety of issues during divorce, including property division, spousal maintenance, and child support. We help spouses with a high net worth understand the issues they must address and work to reach a favorable divorce settlement.
  • Business Owners - We work with spouses who own interests in closely held businesses, helping them determine the value of business assets and divide these assets while keeping the business intact.
  • Corporate Executives and Officers - Executives or officers of publicly traded companies may face unexpected public scrutiny and complex financial issues during divorce. We help spouses prepare for interviews with boards of directors and understand how forms of executive compensation may affect the division of marital property, child support, and spousal support.
