Divorce

 

Divorce is one of the most stressful times, and it can be emotionally and financially straining for families. At Luckett & Ashford, our goal is to make this experience as easy as possible for our clients. We take time to listen to your concerns, explain how the divorce process will be handled and discuss the best options for you and your family. Read More

Child Custody / Parenting Time

 

If you are going through a divorce and have children caught in the middle, you will need an allocation (formerly custody) agreement to determine who will be the main care provider. At Luckett & Ashford, we work hard to negotiate a fair arrangement that maintains a strong relationship between you and your children following a divorce settlement. Read More

Child Support

 

A main concern during a divorce is how your children will be supported once you and your spouse are separated. We will explain the Illinois maintenance (formerly known as alimony) guidelines and work in your best interest to ensure support for your children. Read More

Post-divorce Litigation / Modification of Orders

 

Litigation does not come to an immediate halt once a divorce is finalized. Things may change, especially during your children’s growing years. Court orders can arise if prior agreements need to be modified to fit a change in life situations. Read More

Domestic Violence / Order of Protection

 

If there is domestic violence within your home, you should immediately report the abuse to the authorities and get a protective order from a judge. Ideally, you will be able to stay at your current residence with your child, and your spouse will be forced to move out. If you plan to vacate and take your child, you will need to obtain a temporary custody order so you are not convicted of kidnapping. It is important to consult a family law attorney to discuss the best options for your situation. Read More

Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements
