Family Law Attorney Serving West Central Illinois

Divorce, child custody and other family law issues are emotional matters. Reaching agreement with a spouse on important decisions can be challenging and stressful. A number of family law attorneys tout their tenacious approach to standing tall for your rights and battling for the upper hand in family law disputes. While that may sound impressive, the biggest winners in these situations are the lawyers themselves, who rack up attorney's fees while the two parties extend the process by trying to tear each other apart.

At Alcorn Nelson LLC, we believe a solutions-first attitude can be employed in family law matters while maintaining the ability to protect your personal rights and put you in the best possible position to enjoy your post-divorce life.

This approach reduces stress for the opposing parties as well as their children, increases long-term satisfaction with agreements such as parenting plans, and typically leaves everyone involved in a better financial position.

Our Galesburg Family Law Lawyers Seek Solutions While Protecting Your Rights

We assist clients with the full scope of family law matters, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Property division
  • Mediation
  • Paternity
  • Modifications
  • Enforcement of divorce orders
  • Guardianship
  • Adoption

Our attorneys' commitment to work directly with each client from the initial consultation through resolution of the case is perfectly matched to suit our solutions-based approach. By taking the time to understand the full details of your situation, we can present reasonable positions on these important matters that will stand up in court if it's necessary to litigate.

Litigation, however, always includes an element of uncertainty. By coming to terms regarding child custody, support or any other family law matter without going to court, both parties involved retain more control over the final outcome.

Our attorneys are trained in mediation and conflict resolution, empowering processes that allow parties to develop their own solutions. We take the decision-making capabilities that are built into the Illinois family law codes and guide our clients through a process that puts the power into their hands.

We are always available to answer your questions and recommend the best steps to take. Any conversations are kept in the strictest confidence, whether or not you select us to represent you. Call 309-345-0000 or email us to schedule an appointment.
