Roscich & Marel Law Firm, LLC is committed to helping protect your parental rights. Our Naperville DCFS defense attorney is here to guide you through the process.
Civil unions between same-sex couples and non-traditional, heterosexual couples are legal in the State of Illinois. The Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act – which went into effect on June 1, 2011 – grants those who enter into a civil union many of the same legal protections enjoyed by married couples. Same-sex marriage was later recognized by the State of Illinois and took effect on June 1, 2014.
Of course, just as some marriages end in divorce, some civil unions may also come to an end. Civil union dissolutions are very similar to marriage dissolutions. At the Roscich & Martel Law Firm, our experienced Naperville attorneys are skilled in guiding same-sex and heterosexual couples through the process of civil union dissolution.
Resolving Civil Union Dissolution Issues
Because couples bonded by civil unions enjoy many of the same rights as married couples, the end of a civil union brings up many of the same issues as a divorce. When couples build a home and family together, there are many connections both financial and familial that need to be addressed.
Couples must resolve issues pertaining to:
- Property division
- Child custody & visitation
- Child support
Our Naperville civil union attorneys always seek to resolve these matters as amicably as possible in order to save our clients valuable time and expense. We also understand that an amicable parting is in the best interest of children involved and helps preserve the long-term harmony of the family. If disputes arise that cannot be agreeably resolved, however, we have the knowledge and experience to effectively advocate for our clients’ rights and interests in court.
Our offices are conveniently located in downtown Naperville. Visit us in person or call us at (630) 793-6337 today.
