Attorney for Ending a Marriage in DuPage County and Surrounding Areas

Getting a divorce has far-reaching effects on a person's finances, emotions, and day-to-day life. In large part, the impact of a divorce depends on the terms of the divorce agreement or judgment, and a person who is able to achieve favorable terms is often better able to recover and move forward. For this reason, it is crucial to work with an experienced divorce attorney who can help you dissolve your marriage while protecting your interests.

Attorney Jessica Sendek has practiced exclusively in the area of family law since 2007, and she has the experience necessary to help you navigate the divorce process with confidence and a clear plan for achieving the outcome you desire. Whether you are looking to resolve your divorce through a settlement or a trial, she will help you protect your finances, your children, and any other important priorities you have.

Legal Representation for All Aspects of Your Illinois Divorce

Depending on your situation, you may have several important issues to resolve throughout the divorce process. We offer guidance and representation for all parts of a divorce resolution, including:

  • Division of assets and debts - We work with you to determine which assets and debts are considered marital and non-marital property, identify wrongdoing such as the dissipation of marital assets, and achieve a fair distribution that allows you to keep properties that are important to you.
  • High asset divorce concerns - For spouses with a high-value marital estate, we help with business valuation and division, as well as the division of other major assets like real estate property, investments, and retirement accounts.
  • Spousal support - If you are at risk of being left at a financial disadvantage after the divorce, we can help you pursue spousal maintenance to support yourself while you work to become financially independent.
  • Allocation of parental responsibilities - We help divorcing parents protect the best interests of their children as they seek to establish a parenting plan that addresses parental decision-making and parenting time.
  • Child support - We also help parents ensure that children of divorce continue to receive financial support from both parents for their regular needs, health care, education and college expenses, and extracurricular activities.

In addition to representing you during the divorce process, we can help you in the years following your divorce to petition for modification or enforcement of your divorce order as it pertains to parenting time and responsibility, spousal maintenance, and child support.

Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

One of the most important decisions that all divorcing couples face is the best method for reaching a divorce resolution. Couples who are willing and able to communicate and cooperate may be able to reach an agreement on all important issues on their own and avoid much of the conflict and stress that can come with divorce. Such couples can benefit from our uncontested divorce services to help them file their agreement and other necessary paperwork with the court.

However, we understand that not all marriages end amicably, and if you are facing a contested divorce, Attorney Jessica Sendek has the litigation experience to advise and represent you throughout the process of your divorce trial, including by guiding you through the discovery period and helping you prepare and present evidence and testimony in court.
