Northwest Suburban Chicago Divorce Lawyer

Very few people considering divorce — also known as dissolution of marriage — ever expected to be in that situation.

Mr. Heidelberger has been concentrating on divorce and family law services for more than forty-five years.

Experienced Divorce Lawyer

It is relatively easy to file for divorce in Illinois. We are effectively a no-fault state — the only ground needed for the divorce is that irreconcilable differences exist between the parties which have caused the marriage to become irretrievably broken. Under Illinois law, improper, inappropriate, illegal or even reprehensible behavior is not likely to influence the result of the support or property allocation issues.

Divorce often has a broad range of consequences that clients often initially fail to consider. Issues such as what constitutes marital and non-marital property as well as the implications of divorce on family-owned or closely held businesses need to be resolved as part of any divorce proceeding. In addition, children issues are central to any divorce proceeding. Child support, child custody and visitation, paternity, and adoptions are extremely sensitive and emotional issues that need to be resolved with the best interests of the child as the primary goal.

Divorce lawyer Elliot Heidelberger works closely with each of his clients to efficiently, compassionately, and competently to advise them and to protect their interests and concerns. A quality divorce settlement generally does not happen overnight. Dealing with divorce courts, protecting assets, and devising an equitable distribution of marital assets takes time. However, he also guards against excessive litigation related to divorce settlements. While it is possible to litigate every aspect of a divorce settlement, he believes in protecting our clients from excessive litigation that will have little financial reward.
