Emily Rapp at McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. is adept at handling all aspects of an Illinois divorce. We know how difficult the divorce process can be, and we realize the toll that a divorce can take on both you and your children. When you choose our firm to help with your divorce, you become part of our family, and protecting your best interests becomes our top priority. From negotiating on your behalf to representing you at trial, we will do everything we can to get you the favorable outcome you deserve. We can also help you protect your relationship with your children by developing reasonable arrangements for allocating parental responsibilities and parenting time.

Spousal Support

Also known as alimony or maintenance, spousal support is often an important element in an Illinois divorce. Whether you are seeking spousal support or you are being asked to be pay support in the wake of your divorce, our attorneys will help you secure the resources you need for the next chapter of your life.

Division of Assets

Illinois law requires divorcing spouses to divide their marital assets and debts fairly, but determining a fair allocation is often complex. Our lawyers will work with you to identify, evaluate, and divide your marital estate in accordance with the law, and we are not afraid to take your case into the courtroom to do so.

Litigation and Trials

A large percentage of divorce cases and family law disputes can be resolved outside of the courtroom. Sometimes, however, a trial is the best course of action to get you the outcome you deserve. Emily Rapp at McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. knows what it takes to win even the most difficult cases. If your divorce or family-related matter seems headed for trial, you can depend on us to fiercely advocate on your behalf.


Our lawyers are tenacious litigators with a track record of courtroom success, but we know that not every case requires such an approach. With this in mind, we also help clients who are seeking an amicable divorce through mediation. Mediation is generally considered a lower-stress, cost-effective alternative to litigation. Whether you are looking for a lawyer to represent you in a mediated divorce or a mediator to help resolve your family-related dispute, we are equipped to meet your needs.


Depending on the circumstances of your case, an unfavorable outcome or ruling by a judge does not necessarily mean the end of the road. If the ruling or unfavorable outcome was based on a misapplication of the law, or a procedural error was made during your case, you may be able to file an appeal. The appeals process in Illinois is complicated, and you need an experienced family law appeals attorney on your side. Emily Rapp at McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. can help you with your appeal, even if another firm handled your case originally. Your window for filing your appeal is limited, so contact us as soon as possible.

Estate Planning

Emily Rapp at McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. knows that you have worked hard to accumulate the assets and property that you currently own. We also realize that you deserve the security of knowing that your estate will be in good hands when you are gone. Our attorneys help clients address estate planning concerns and create documents such as wills, powers of attorney, and more. Let us assist you in protecting your legacy for generations to come.
