Following through with a divorce is a big step, no matter how long you have been married, and especially if children are involved. But when your partnership with your spouse just isn't working any longer, you know it.
Working with a divorce attorney to resolve family law issues is important to ensure that the steps you take through the process are in the best interests of you and your children. I can help you avoid expensive legal and financial pitfalls while doing everything possible to guide you along the path that will end with your best possible result, whether we are working towards settlement or preparing for trial.
At the Law Offices of Dwayne Douglas, located across the street from the Lake County Courthouse in Waukegan, your informed decisions are respected. I will be your passionate advocate and strategize for your success.
Gurnee-Area Family Law Attorney
During your free initial consultation, we will discuss your particular situation comprehensively. We will address each of your concerns individually and focus on how my services can best be applied to resolve your legal issues in a reasonable and efficient manner. I will present you with options, including:
- Utilizing out-of-court settlement efforts
- Preparing for mediation and contested litigation in custody and visitation disputes
- Preparing for contested litigation for matters where children are not at issue, such as maintenance (alimony), property division, attorney's fees, and other matters
I will help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of each approach, and we will work together to create a plan that is tailor-made to serve your needs.
Across my practice, from child custody matters to support modifications to anything that might require my attention in the courtroom, I handle cases with care and professionalism. With my help, you can gain positive footing to move forward with confidence and security.
Experienced Lake County Appellate Lawyer
I am also an appellate lawyer, so after the trial is over, I can continue to protect your interests in the Appellate Court. Whether we are working to protect what we have achieved in the trial court if your spouse appeals, or resolving to continue the fight beyond the trial, an appeal is a completely different process from handling your case in the county courthouse. I have the experience to fight on beyond the county courthouse and to continue to protect your interests until the very end.
I have been practicing law in Illinois since 1991, and I am familiar with the diverse needs of the clients I work hard to serve in Lake County, McHenry County, Cook County and DuPage County.
