Divorce Lawyer Serving Skokie & Northfield, IL

Enabling families to make a fresh start in Skokie and beyond

A legal separation or divorce means sharing very private, personal information about your life, marriage and finances with the court. During such a stressful time, you need to be able to trust your attorney and have unwavering confidence in their advocacy. Paul Chatzky has advised families going through similar situations for more than 30 years and we look forward to continuing to provide relief to our clients for many years to come. Although we understand that each client’s experience is unique, we pledge the same compassionate advocacy and dedicated service to you.

Knowledgeable legal options lead to positive outcomes

When marriage conflicts are irreparable, an experienced divorce lawyer offers strategies that result in the most amicable solution possible for your family. We apply our years of knowledge to every case, integrating family needs with Illinois state law. We work to:

  • Strengthen and safeguard your family relationships
  • Diligently promote settling disputes amicably
  • Mitigate potential emotional harm during divorce proceedings
  • Obtain a favorable distribution of property and assets

Paul Chatzky applies these guiding principles to provide viable options for you and your family.

Assisting with the divorce and negotiation process in Skokie & Northfield, IL

Whether you are seeking a legal separation, an uncontested divorce, or you are facing a lengthy divorce negotiation and settlement, we guide you through each step from beginning to end.

We take time in our initial consultation to determine if a negotiated resolution is possible, since that process is faster and less expensive than litigating the case through trial. If we must proceed to trial, however, Mr. Chatzky’s years of experience in Cook & Lake County, IL courts work to your advantage through pretrial conferences and trial representation.

Divorce lawyers making a case for family dynamics

Separating parents from children can be the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Our family law attorney strives to maintain the integrity of the family during these often tumultuous times. We advocate diligently for your parental rights, and present a solid case for a favorable outcome of your child custody and child support disputes.

Trusted firm protecting your rights beyond the divorce

Relationships are complex enough, but life circumstances and other factors may affect your role and obligations beyond the divorce settlement itself.

  • Spousal support — Divorce does not need to result in undue financial hardship or a complete change in lifestyle. We work to establish fair and equitable support so you can live comfortably.
  • Enforcement of court orders — A divorce decree establishes legal obligations relating to the allocation of parenting time and parental decision-making authority (Child Custody/Visitation). The Decree also provides for the financial support of your children. If a former spouse fails to abide by court orders, our office advocates on your behalf to compel compliance with the court’s orders.
  • Post-decree support modifications — A job loss, diminished pay or a sudden injury can compromise your financial ability to comply with a court order. Or a former spouse may come into money or receive a promotion. Under the right circumstances, we are able to successfully intervene and obtain a modification for a fairer, more mutual contribution of child support.
