Property Division

As a marriage dissolves the complex issue of division of property can be emotionally charged and difficult to resolve. In these situations, it is important to seek help from an experienced DuPageCounty property division lawyer. The actual division of marital property can be extremely complicated, and can result in unnecessary anxiety and uncertainty. Our DuPage County property division attorneys are fully prepared to assist with even the most complex property division matters. We will make every effort to help you and your spouse settle these matters through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution. If this is not possible, we also are accomplished litigators who will fully advocate for you in court.

Child Support

When children are involved in a divorce case, both parents share the responsibility of providing them with the love and attention they deserve, not only to endure the proceedings, but to succeed in life. This is the case for financial obligations as well.

Child support is a monetary payment that a noncustodial parent pays toward the living expenses of their children.

At Hoffenberg and Block, we provide personal, professional representation for a wide range of child support matters. Whether you need to establish child support or are in need of assistance with child support collection or modification, we are prepared to guide you through every step of the process. Our DuPageCounty child support attorneys are dedicated to helping you obtain the best possible outcome for your situation. 

Child Custody and Visitation

When determining child custody and visitation matters, either during or after a divorce or for unmarried parents, the courts will decide based on the best interests of the child. What is in a child’s best interest may not be easily determined. Additionally, the difference between joint and sole legal custody may be unclear. In these situations, an experienced DuPage County Child Custody lawyer can explain the process and guide you through to a favorable outcome.

We also handle temporary and permanent custody issues, child removal and relocation matters, as well as modification and enforcement of existing court orders.

Spousal Support

Spousal Maintenance, formerly called Alimony, and also called Spousal Support, is not always agreed to or awarded in a divorce case.

Instead, alimony is determined by the need of one party and the ability to pay by the other. There are many factors considered in calculating alimony, including the length of the marriage, the standard of living established during the marriage, earning potential of both parties, contribution of each party to the marriage, and the financial status of each party.

When a marriage is dissolved it can have unfair financial consequences on a spouse. If one party in a divorce case has become accustomed to a lifestyle standard that was established during marriage, spousal support such as alimony, maintenance or palimony, is an option to consider.

Our experienced maintenance attorneys are prepared to assist with even the most complex cases. Whether you are seeking alimony or defending against it, we will advocate for you at every step.
