Lawyers in Kane County for Family Law Disputes

When you are facing the possibility of a divorce or any other difficult family law matter, the attorney you choose to represent your interests can make a difference in the outcome of your case.

You also need an attorney who knows how to get results.

With more than 12 years of experience both inside and outside the courtroom, we have handled the toughest cases and established an impressive history of success.

Divorce and Property Considerations

According to leading mental health experts, divorce is one of the most stressful experiences a person will ever endure. The end of any romantic relationship is always difficult, but divorce is more than a breakup. It also represents the process through which you and your spouse must separate the life that you may have spent many years building together. For most couples, this means finding solutions to a number of financial and property-related matters.

Under Illinois law, divorcing spouses are each entitled to an equitable share of the couple's marital property. Determining what is "equitable," however, is a common point of contention. Our attorneys will work with you to identify, evaluate, and divide marital property fairly between you and your spouse. Through negotiation, mediation, or, if necessary, litigation, we will ensure that your rights are fully protected throughout the process.

Emily Rapp at McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C. can also help you petition for spousal support as part of your divorce. Spousal support, also called maintenance or alimony, is intended to help offset the financial impact of a divorce on a lower-earning or stay-at-home spouse. Our goal is to get you the resources you need to move on to the next chapter of your life.

Child-Related Dispute Attorneys in Batavia and Elgin

If you are a parent who is going through a divorce or legal separation, or you were never married, our attorneys are prepared to help you with any child-related dispute you may be facing. We offer skilled guidance in creating workable parenting plans that address issues such as the allocation of parental responsibilities (child custody) and parenting time (visitation). Our team also helps mothers and fathers in disputes related to a proposed relocation by either parent.

We also recognize the importance of establishing legal paternity for your child. Whether you are a mother seeking to establish paternity so you can receive child support or a father who is ready to take on a larger role in your child's life, we can help you take the necessary steps. Emily Rapp at McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C., believes in protecting family relationships, and we will work hard to assist you in doing so.

Other Family Law Considerations

In addition to divorce and child-related matters, our attorneys help couples create reasonable, legally sound prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We can also assist you in appealing the outcome of your divorce or family law dispute if you believe that a procedural error or misapplication of the law led to an unfavorable result.
