The Family Law Support You Need in Naperville

When most people think of family law they think divorce. But, family law is muc
h more than that!

In fact, family law generally refers to all family law, whether child support and maintenance, determining care arrangements for your child, or getting divorced. And, regardless of what kind of family law support you need, Lawrence R. Surinak Ltd. has almost four decades of experience working in your favor!

There are Two Main Categories of Family Law…

Those two categories include:

  1. Parentage Cases – These are cases where you had a child with another individual, but were never married. If you file a parentage action with the court, it’s likely to get a child support order, or to enter what’s called an Allocation of Parental Responsibilities Judgment to determine a care arrangement for your child.
  2. Divorce Cases – Divorce will also involve issues in parentage cases, but will also require you to enter into a Marital Settlement Agreement (to divide the assets and debts of the marriage), and get a Judgment for Dissolution, which officially ends your marriage.

Regardless of which type of family law case you file, you need a Naperville family law attorney who understands the complexities of any case and who can advocate on your behalf. With Larry of Lawrence R. Surinak, Ltd. you get just that.

Breaking Down Complex, Intimidating Problems Into Solutions

If you’ve been considering filing any kind of family law action in court, the entire process might seem overwhelming, or even intimidating. However, it will only remain this way if you don’t seek an attorney who can break down the complexities and make everything more understandable, and digestible.

For example, did you know child custody doesn’t exist in Illinois anymore? Did you know that the formula to calculate child support has just recently changed? What about the changes to alimony under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that will take effect beginning next year?

If not, don’t sweat it! You aren’t expected to know these details about family law. Larry has more than 37 years of experience and can explain to you how every single step of the process works so you never feel overwhelmed, or intimidated.
