Talking Doesn’t Help: If talking with your spouse does not help any more, and things continue to heat up with each passing day – then it is time you consider consulting a divorce lawyer.

Physical Abuse: Physical abuse is the last straw that can be broken in a relationship. If your partner is putting you through any sort of physical abuse, then consulting a divorce lawyer becomes a must.

How to Find the Best Divorce Lawyer?

Reviews and Recommendations: Nowadays one of the best ways to search for anything is through reviews and recommendations. You could get direct referrals from someone, or reach out to people who have had experiences with divorce lawyers in the past. Having access to the internet makes things even easier now because you can easily go through the reviews as well.

Know what you want: It is important to determine the type of outcome you are expecting from the attorney. Always properly communicate your desired outcome with the attorney. Whether it is a fair distribution of assets or child custody – always be clear with your thoughts.

Interview Family Lawyers: Amidst a divorce, your patience levels may already be down. It is worth interviewing the family lawyer first to see whether they understand your requirements or not.

Know your Budget: Budget can always make a difference when searching for a family attorney. Have a clear picture in your mind on how much fee you could afford. However, do not be discouraged because there are expert many lawyers who only charge a nominal fee.

What to ask from a Divorce Lawyer at the First Meeting?

Case Outcome: Carefully explain your case to the lawyer, ask for a candid answer on whether they could assist you or not.

Skills and Experience: Skills and experience matter a lot when hiring a law attorney. Ask how long they have been in this and what is their particular field of expertise.

Who will have Custody of my Child?

Illinois laws have two main aspects when defining a child’s custody: Residential Custody: This includes where the child lives and which parent has the obligation to pay child support. Legal Custody: This includes making the important decisions of a child’s life such as choice of religion (if any) and school. Which parent gets the residential custody of the child depends on the following factors:

  1. Child’s Welfare
  2. The mental health of Parents
  3. Relationship with Parent
  4. The occurrence of Abuse
  5. Physical Health of Parents

There are also chances of joint custody, but this can only happen if the parents are open to communication. In case the parents are unwilling to communicate, then the judge may show reluctance in proceeding with this decision. Child custody mainly depends on facts, and while determining the outcome on your own can be difficult, a law attorney can thoroughly guide you by evaluating your current circumstances.

How do I get Child Support?

Normally the parent with primary custody of the child is eligible to receive payments from the other parent for child support. Normally it is a fixed amount that includes a couple of basic costs including medical, education, travel, and extra-curricular activities. Depending on the financial standings of the other parent, and your requirements you could consult your family law attorney to prepare an agreement. Once that agreement is prepared, the attorney is then going to present it in front of the court.

If you are trying to get support for your child, then it is important to have a thorough discussion with your attorney. They are going to ask you different questions and then file documents for the court proceedings so you become eligible for the payments once the documents have been approved.

How can I change a Child Support Order?

In case you are not satisfied with the child support, there is also the option to modify it. There’s a specific process that one must follow which includes notifying the parent that you are requesting modifications along with the following:

  • A stamped copy of the petition to the parent
  • File Certificate of Mailing Petition for modification of child support with proper verification of date by the circuit clerk.
  • The other parent must receive a stamped copy of the Certificate of Mailing

Speaking with a lawyer under such circumstances can always be beneficial. Changing the child support order can at times be stressful due to all the paperwork involved. Once the Certificate of Mailing is received and viewed by the other parent, you can request a hearing for the modification to get a date fixed. The overall process of child support order modification can still be tiring. The involvement of an attorney could give you better guidance on what steps you should take.
