We understand the importance of putting children first and ensuring they continue to live their lives in the healthiest family environment possible. We believe it is best for parents to work together to maintain the highest level of care for their children during and after the divorce. Our experience in these matters will ensure that you and your children’s best interest will be upheld in determining custody.
Under Illinois law, both parents are obligated to provide financial support for their children. Generally, child support is paid by a non-custodial parent to the parent with whom a minor child primarily resides. The court uses a formula to calculate child support based on income, number of children, and other factors. We can assist you with any child support issue, including representation in both the pursuit of and in defense against claims for unpaid child support.
Spousal maintenance is awarded in situations when one spouse is not self-supporting and unable to contribute to the other spouse’s support. Whether you are a dependent spouse or a higher earner in your marriage, we are ready to help ensure a stable financial future following your divorce.

Most divorces include some division of marital assets (and liabilities) such as:
- Investment accounts
- Real estate
- Credit card debt
- Business interests
- Retirement benefits
Illinois uses equitable property division, which means a judge determines the division of property based on unique circumstances for each case. You need a skilled, creative Barrington attorney capable of crafting a settlement that is equitable and fair for everyone involved.
