In January, 2016, the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act was revised, and changes have been made to the law and terminology. Our Naperville attorneys can help you through the steps and processes and will explain the changes along the way, including:
As part of the divorce process, both spouses are required to provide a complete disclosure of their financial information — incomes, assets, and debts. You will have to provide pay stubs, income tax returns, and bank statements supporting the information listed in the affidavits. If inaccurate information is provided, the court can impose monetary penalties.
Every divorce case is different, and a local Naperville attorney will know your rights under the Illinois legal system and advocate for your best interests in court. Our attorneys can help you divide assets properly by using legal discovery methods such as depositions, subpoenas and requests for your spouse to produce documents. And even after the divorce, we will take care of paperwork, follow-up tasks, and return to court should additional problems arise.
Illinois laws and guidelines can be difficult to interpret, and making a mistake could mean returning to court and nasty and costly drawn-out battles that adversely affect you and your children. Fortunately, there is help available when you have a lawyer on your side. The seasoned Naperville family law attorneys at Wolfe & Stec handle all cases with sensitivity, respect, and discretion.

During trial four experts all testified against our client the Judge found it was in the best interest of the child that our client be awarded custody. We have successfully represented clients in numerous child custody cases.
We recently analyzed a case whereby the opposing side was seeking a substantial award of maintenance against our client. After a thorough review of the facts and circumstances and several hearings, our client’s obligation to pay maintenance was limited to two years at half of what his former spouse was seeking.
After our client voluntarily changed employment we were able to obtain a substantial reduction in child support payments. We have also stopped such reductions when representing clients receiving child support.
