Skillful Guidance on Issues of Divorce and Property Division
Our divorce lawyers represent husbands and wives in divorce negotiations, divorce mediation, and divorce court. We also assist with marriage annulments and premarital agreements. Our lawyers help divorcing couples and unmarried couples — civil unions and cohabiting couples — work through the issues of property division after the break-up of a relationship. No matter how complex your marital property, we can help with skillful negotiation and access to expert valuators for complicated assets such as executive compensation and family-owned businesses.
We can also represent you in negotiations, divorce mediation, or court regarding spousal maintenance (alimony) and with post-decree issues and enforcement of orders if a former spouse is failing to follow through.

Compassionate Legal Guidance on Issues Affecting Children
Children need and deserve the loving support of every adult in their life. What children do not need is the emotional turmoil that often accompanies an uncomfortable custody dispute. At the law office of Anderson & Associates, we help families find solutions to child custody (also known as allocation of parental responsibility) and child support challenges while working to put the best interests of the child first.
- We represent parents seeking custody or parenting time (visitation), or needing help with modification of an existing court order, such as in a move-away situation.
- We assist grandparents in asserting their rights to visitation and in cases of grandparent adoption.
- We help couples resolve questions of parentage with DNA testing and voluntary acknowledgement of parenthood.
- We assist couples seeking to build a family through adoption: we handle open and closed adoption, U.S. and international adoption, and family-member and foster adoption. We also help in cases of contested adoption.

Avoid the Anxiety and Uncertainty of Property Division
There are things you can do today to ensure your financial security in the event of a divorce or dissolution later in life. Our Illinois family law attorneys can guide you in the preparation of a premarital agreement prior to marriage, or a postnup if you are already married. If you are considering living together, you can still enter into a legally binding cohabitation agreement to specify how property and assets will be handled. The family lawyers at Anderson & Associates also represent clients in prenuptial and postmarital litigation.
Orders for Protection
If you have been the victim of domestic violence, threats, stalking or intimidation, take it seriously and seek help. Our family lawyers will help you go to court to obtain a restraining order.
Estate Planning and Probate Services
Any time there is a significant change in your family situation — a divorce or the addition of a child — you should review your estate plan. We assist families with wills and trusts and legal guardianship, as well as with probate or estate administration following the death of a loved one.
