A Full-Service Du Page, Cook and Will County Family Law Firm
The law office of Michael L. Lodermeier, P.C. is a family law firm concentrating its practice in matrimonial and family law. From our offices in Oak Brook and Chicago Illinois, our skilled attorneys take on cases throughout the Chicagoland area, including Du Page, Cook, Will, Kane and Lake Counties.
Our clients come to us to represent them in highly contested divorces, uncontested divorces, the drafting of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, to obtain spousal maintenance, legal separation, property division, equitable distribution, modification of prior orders and enforcement and violation of current orders. We are regularly on trial for custody, visitation, and child support matters.
Divorce is stressful for all parties, including children. Whether your divorce has come quickly or is the result of long-standing problems, you don’t want the process to drag on, prolonging the uncertainty.
Child visitation rights are some of the most contentious aspects of a divorce or parentage action. The care of minor children is always of primary importance to parents and this portion of the divorce usually takes longer to decide than a division of marital assets.
Divorce property division can be one of the most acrimonious aspects of going through a divorce. Illinois is an “equitable distribution” state in which the court must equitably divide the property accumulated during the marriage.
Spousal support, alimony, or spousal maintenance is the continued payment made from one spouse to another to maintain a certain standard of living after a divorce. In addition to child custody issues or division of property, it is one of the most contentious issues that parties may face.
