Family Law Overview

Compassionate and Committed Chicago, Illinois, Family Law Firm

When you are dealing with a family law issue, whether it be divorce, legal separation, child custody or visitation, property division or alimony, it is important to work with a family law attorney who is not only experienced, but also understanding and empathetic, and who understands that every case and client is unique.

Contact The Law Office of Jennifer A. Pritz or call 708-459-8234 for a free initial consultation.

I am attorney Jennifer A. Pritz , and I provide dedicated and compassionate family law counsel in the following areas:

  • Divorce: The divorce process can be highly emotional and stressful. It is crucial to have legal counsel you can trust, who can give you objective guidance and a realistic assessment of your situation. Whether you have concerns about how your property will be divided or what will happen to your home or children, I take the time to listen and understand your individual background and situation in order to provide guidance best tailored to your needs, goals and objectives.
  • Child custody: More than simply "who gets the kids," the question child custody raises two key considerations: whether one or both parents will make decisions regarding the welfare of the child, and how much time will be spent with the child. I will work closely with you to craft a custody and parenting time arrangement that keeps the child's best interests in mind, while protecting your parental rights.
  • Custody and support modifications: When an individual's circumstances change and the determinations made as part of the divorce decree are no longer applicable, post-decree modifications can be made. Changed circumstances may include changes in health, income, employment or location of residence that affect child support, child custody and spousal support/alimony.
  • Collaborative practice and mediation: Pursuing a collaborative practice approach to divorce often allows individuals to get through the process more quickly and cost-effectively. This route lets couples avoid litigation, by taking a more cooperative approach to reach agreements regarding property division, custody and child support.

A Practice Centered on the Client

In my family law practice, I take pride in keeping my clients informed. I believe that this approach reduces stress during an already difficult time, makes the legal process less foreign and allows me to build client relationships grounded in confidence and trust. By being fully informed about their rights and options, potential outcomes in their situation and the status of their case, I believe my clients are put in the best position possible to make the informed decisions that protect their interests.
