And by working together, we can help our clients to survive not only their divorce, but also the years to come.

The first step in the divorce process is for us to clearly understand our clients’ needs and concerns. The next step is for us to educate our clients about their legal rights and responsibilities. We encourage our clients to think about how they hope to live their lives in the future after the divorce is over. We help them to set realistic goals and find the means to achieve them:
- We explain family law in Illinois and how it is interpreted by the courts.
- We describe the spectrum of possible outcomes, drawing on our knowledge of the Illinois family court system and how judges view the issues.
- Based on the facts of a client’s case and the circumstances of his or her life, we assess where he or she might fall on the spectrum of possible outcomes.
- We compare the possible outcomes with the resources it might take to achieve them.
- We are honest. For example, if we are dealing with a $2,000 issue, we advise our client that spending $5,000 in legal fees to fight it does not make good sense.
- We offer knowledgeable financial advice. Attorney Warren Sylvester is skilled in dealing with the complex financial matters involved in divorce, including the tax ramifications of the division of marital assets and debts.
- We structure settlements that enable our clients to move on with their lives in a financially stable manner.
- When an amicable divorce settlement appears unlikely, we pursue mediation or develop aggressive litigation strategies to achieve our client’s goals.
Child Custody, Visitation and Parenting Time
These three issues — child custody, visitation and parenting time — are always foremost when there are young children in the marriage. If these issues are contested, mediation is mandatory in Illinois.
