Chicago Family Law Office
Personalized Legal Counsel From Experienced Chicago Family Law Attorneys
Every divorce is different. That’s why the lawyers at Blacha Law Office in Chicago create legal strategies that are tailored to each client’s unique objectives and needs.
We eschew cookie-cutter approaches to the important decisions that must be made when ending a marriage or a nonmarital relationship in which there are minor children. The decisions regarding child custody and parenting plans, child support, the division of marital property and spousal maintenance will have significant impact on the look and feel of the next phase of your life.
We will take the time to listen to your concerns, understand your priorities and develop a legal strategy designed to achieve your goals.
The lawyer you work with in divorce can have a great impact not only on the outcome, but on how you navigate through the process. We aim to remove the stress that is commonly associated with divorce, while making sure we protect your interests at every turn. We aim to reach agreement on as much as possible through negotiation, but our attorneys are always ready to litigate if a fair offer is not on the table.
From the free consultation through the resolution of your case, we will emphasize clear and timely communication. We will explain all options and encourage your participation in the decision-making process.
