Family Law Attorney for South & Southwest Cook County
Also Serving Individuals & Families in Will County, DuPage County & South Chicago
Family law issues such as divorce, child custody, and more may be the most stressful of all legal problems because they deal with the most personal areas of your life. Not only can they be complex legally but they can be especially challenging to resolve due to the emotional strain they put on people and their children. All kinds of issues can be deeply impacted in family law cases, from how the kids will be shared, how the property will be split up, and how you can safely move on in separate households on your one income. Even the family dog can become a hotly-contested matter in a divorce case.
To handle all this and understand how state law may affect your case, you need a knowledgeable attorney you trust and with whom you feel comfortable. Your attorney will be your guide, your ally, and your legal protector in making sure your rights are asserted and your best interests are represented in negotiations and/or in court. At Thomas Eric Ost, Attorney at Law, we understand how difficult divorce and its related issues can be. The stakes can be high in terms of your finances, your children, and a thousand other aspects. Backed by three decades in the legal profession, we bring valuable experience and a supportive approach to your family law case.
