Compassionate And Caring Family Law Counsel

Family law cases involve tough, emotional issues — we understand that. We realize there is a very personal impact on each client we work with. Families in transition worry about their children's well-being. Others worry that they won't be able to meet their financial obligations. If you are considering a transition or are already in the middle of one, the lawyers at Maurizio & Sharpe can help.

Protect What Matters Most

If you are in the process of a divorce and you have children, your primary concern is likely about your children and the impact of the divorce on them. In Illinois, child custody laws have undergone major changes in recent years.

Now, more than ever, it is critical to hire an experienced attorney who can help you understand how the law affects your family and your children.

Financial Issues In Family Law

Clients are usually concerned about the financial impact that a family law proceeding will have on them. Calculating child support is an issue whenever custody is determined. Asset and debt division is part of every divorce proceeding. In many divorces, spousal support — maintenance — is a major issue as well.

In addition to divorce and custody issues, we routinely handle other family law matters, including:

  • Child support
  • Maintenance (spousal support)
  • Parental relocation issues — in and out of state
