Agree when possible . . . litigate when necessary.
Family law disputes should be about solving problems.
It’s possible that you might have an uncontested divorce in Illinois, or that your case might start off as contested, then quickly settle. I’ll try to make that happen for you. While there are processes to follow, I’ll try to keep things simple and to avoid wasteful protracted negotiations.
But if your spouse or the other parent is being unfair and unreasonable, then you might need to litigate. If necessary, I will fight hard for you while being your strategic partner. Certain people only react when under extreme pressure, and if you are fighting someone like that, I can take your case to trial.
