At Abear Law Offices, we represent clients in Elmhurst, IL and throughout DuPage County and Kane County in divorce and family law legal matters including:
DIVORCE (CONTESTED & UNCONTESTED) – Divorcing your spouse is one of life’s more difficult challenges. Not only are there complex legal issues to resolve, there are also complex emotional issues involved. Having an attorney who is skilled in navigating the world of family law is essential to getting through the process as easily as possible. At the Abear Law Offices, our Elmhurst divorce attorneys work hard to ensure that your divorce will be handled with skill, compassion and efficiency.
CHILD CUSTODY & VISITATION – In situations where two parents are not together, arrangements for child custody and/or visitation must be made. While some parents can work out these arrangements on their own amicably, these issues are often hotly contested in many cases. At the Abear Law Offices, we aggressively protect the rights of our clients and the interests of the children involved. The well-being of the children is always our top priority.
CHILD SUPPORT – Child support is one of the most commonly handled issues in family law. It is typically a part of divorce proceedings and legal separations or arranged between two unmarried parents. This issue goes hand-in-hand with child custody and visitation.
COMPLEX DIVORCE – High-net worth divorces often involve complex issues that include business valuations, enforcement of prenuptial agreements, business valuations, and more.
FAMILY LAW – Legal disputes within a family can be particularly challenging for everyone involved. Choosing the right family lawyer to represent you can make a significant difference in the outcome of your family legal issues, both legally and personally. We are committed to helping our Elmhurst, IL family law clients navigate the legal system without disrupting their life any more than is absolutely necessary.
MEDIATION – Many divorce proceedings involve a significant amount of conflict and expense. Bitterness and discord often come with the territory in the dissolution of a marriage. That doesn’t have to be the case for every divorce, however. Where both parties can agree to an amicable negotiation process, mediation can save time, money and hurt feelings. At the Abear Law Offices, many of our divorce cases are handled through mediation rather than litigation.
PROPERTY DIVISION – In a divorce, all assets that are considered marital property are subject to equitable distribution. For example, if you start a business during your marriage or if your business increases in value in part due to the efforts of your spouse during your marriage (i.e. providing child care so that you can run the business), some or all of the value of the business may be divided in a divorce.
SPOUSAL MAINTENACE ( ALIMONY) – Spousal maintenance, also called spousal support or alimony, is often one of the most contentious matters involved in a divorce. Maintenance payments are made from one former spouse to the other and are intended to offset the financial hardship a divorce may cause to one spouse. How much one spouse owes to another varies depending on the specific financial circumstances of both parties. At the Abear Law Offices, our Elmhurst divorce attorneys are experienced in negotiating and litigating issues of spousal maintenance from both sides.
UNCONTESTED DIVORCE – An uncontested divorce is a practical and cost-effective solution when you and your spouse have agreed to divorce. If you and your spouse agree on all issues, you should consider an uncontested divorce – our Elmhurst uncontested divorce lawyers can help!

We are committed to assisting our clients in finding resolutions even in the most difficult situations. We will help you navigate these challenging times and provide you with the support you need.
