Family Law Practice
A significant part of the divorce process is the division of property. The assets that are subject to distribution are marital property, and this includes all assets acquired by either spouse throughout the union regardless of title. Meanwhile, all protected individual property is separate property, and it consists of all the assets either spouse had before being married, an inheritance, and gifts from third parties.
Every state has laws regulating asset division during a divorce. Both Florida and Illinois are “equitable distribution” states, which means that marital property is divided fairly, although not always equally. Since a divorce judge may consider numerous factors when determining property division, hiring an attorney can help you keep the assets you worked so hard to acquire.
At the Shambee Law Office, Ltd., we help clients understand which assets are best for their short and long-term financial security. Our goal is to assist you in making an informed legal decision that will help you get the most from your divorce.
Child Custody Cases
Couples going through a divorce must also arrange for the custody and care of any shared children. In Florida and Illinois, family courts require the establishment of a parenting plan before awarding a custody agreement. Parenting plans describe the rights and obligations of both parents while establishing the expectations of shared parental responsibility. This legal document should include custody and time-sharing schedules, medical and healthcare matters, and any other circumstances relative to the children.
When reviewing a parenting plan, a judge will consider all relevant factors and make a decision based on the child’s best interest. Having legal representation could help you protect your parental rights and the well-being of your family. At the Shambee Law Office, Ltd., we can help you prepare and navigate custody hearings in and out of the courtroom.
