Peoria divorce lawyer representing fathers

Illinois allows a parent to file for divorce as long as they have resided in the state for at least ninety days. Shortly after the case is filed the Court will make temporary rulings on issues regarding child custody, child support, and whether a child can be relocated out of state. This is in addition to issues such as spousal support, possession of the marital residence, and more. After these initial rulings have been made then each party will begin accumulating evidence which they need to prove their case. The matter will conclude with a bench trial at which the Judge will rule on all financial and child related issues. Taking a case to trial is a complicated process and you should retain an experienced attorney to assist you.
