With compassion, dedication, and assertion, the divorce lawyers at Berry K. Tucker & Associates, Ltd. are available to help in all of the following areas:

These can include investments in homes, cars, stocks, boats, motorcycles, the list goes on. As these belongings may also have sentimental value, the issue can quickly become sensitive when establishing an agreement that will work in both parties’ best interest. Our attorneys will work with you to determine your priorities and which assets are most important to you.
  • Spousal Support: This area is also known as alimony or maintenance; however, they are not always awarded in divorce cases. The determining factors of this include the health, length, and earning capacity of the marriage. It will also typically occur if a certain lifestyle was established that no longer exists after the marriage. If you are considering spousal support after your divorce, consider speaking with one of our attorneys as it can be established both long and short-term.Divorce-Lawyers-Alsip-IL
