  • Domestic Violence: In any situation that you and your child, if involved, are in danger of your spouse, you must reach out to the authorities immediately. It is then important to contact an experienced divorce lawyer to discuss your options for legal protection. As domestic violence can include any of the following situations: physical, mental, or emotional abuse, harassment, stalking, or any threats made to your or your loved ones, you are immediately eligible to file for a protection order.

  • Spousal Support: Although this is not granted in all divorce cases, there are a number of situations where individuals do qualify for this support. Also commonly known as maintenance and alimony, the determining factors of this aid can include the overall length, health, and earning capacity of each party during the time of the marriage. In addition, you may also qualify if a particular lifestyle was established during the marriage that no longer exists after the divorce. Regardless, the attorneys at Berry K. Tucker & Associates, Ltd. will work with you in negotiating the details of establishing your spousal support.
  • Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements: In the event of a divorce, a pre- or post-nuptial agreement can provide a strong foundation when it comes to the division of assets as well as the custody of your children, if involved. If you are considering one of these agreements before, during, or after your marriage, our experienced divorce lawyers will be able to establish an effective solution that will ensure a smooth transition in the event of a divorce.Divorce-Law-Palos-Hills-IL
    • Pre-Nuptial Agreement: Most important for establishing a foundation in the divorce process, this agreement will set the grounds for all financial investments, property, and assets before they are to become marital or community. If you find yourself in any of these situations, you may want to consider a pre-nuptial agreement: you own or co-own a business, are expecting a significant increase in their salary, or have large investments.
    • Post-Nuptial Agreement: Similar to a pre-nuptial agreement, this document outlines the boundaries for financial interests as well as child custody and support, if present, after the marriage has ended. However, you will want to consider the fact that the assets covered in this agreement are already considered marital or community property.
  • Division of Property: Unfortunately, the division of property is not as simple as drawing a red line through the center of the home and picking a side. The details can involve aspects that may not even be expected during a divorce, such as child custody or support. Especially if you share a number of assets and investments between you and the other party, consider speaking with an experienced divorce attorney at Berry K. Tucker & Associates, Ltd. We will work with you to establish an effective solution that best accommodates your needs in the event of a divorce.Divorce-Attorneys-Palos-Hills-IL
