The Dissolution of Marriage process can encompass many specific issues, such as grounds for divorce, custody of minor children, visitation, spousal and child support, division of assets, attorney’s fees, and modification of prior court orders and Judgments. Going through a divorce can cause a great deal of emotions and there are many difficult decisions that one needs to make. Divorce attorney, Martin Osinski, can help you through this difficult time and can have a huge impact on the outcome of your divorce.

Whether you are currently going through a divorce or contemplating a divorce, it is crucial that you fully understand your legal rights. In Illinois, the laws governing all aspects of the divorce process are codified in the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act. The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act provides the framework for the dissolution of Marriage, custody of minor child, visitation, spousal and child support, division of assets, and attorney’s fees.

Some couples look for another option instead of divorce, and there are some alternatives. If a couple decides to separate, it does not necessarily mean that they will need to go to court. Some other options include mediation and legal separation:

  • Mediation: During mediation, couples try to negotiate different matters at hand and work with a mediator to resolve any disputes
  • Legal separation: During a legal separation, a couple will try to resolve the same legal issues that arise during a divorce, including child custody and the division of their assets, but they stay married. A legal separation allows the couple to live apart and divide their assets without officially dissolving their marriage

Deciding to legally dissolve a marriage takes a great deal of preparation so that the proceedings are handled fairly. The end result of your dissolution will most likely have a great impact on your future, which is why you need experienced divorce attorney, Martin Osinski, to help you throughout the entire process.
