Family Law

Guiding You Through the Illinois Family Law System

Divorce and other family law conflicts can take a high emotional and financial toll. Understanding the legal process and knowing what to expect can give you peace of mind during this difficult time.

At Courtney, Clark & Mejias, P.C., we take the time to listen to our clients' stories and help them understand how Illinois laws apply to their case. When you have a family law concern in Southern Illinois, we will work to minimize the emotional and financial cost of your case.

Divorce

No two families are the same, and there is no one solution that works for every divorce. During your free initial consultation, we prepare you for every stage of the divorce process. We will walk you through the steps that need to be taken to resolve every aspect of your divorce, including:

  • Separation agreements
  • Division of marital property
  • Parenting Plans
  • Child support
  • Spousal maintenance (alimony)

Together, we will explore all options available to you and guide you through the process, reaching workable solutions that look to the future. Your lawyer will always let you know what to expect so that you are never shocked in negotiation, mediation or litigation.
