Aurora, Illinois Divorce and Family Law Attorney

Collaborative Law Lawyer Serving Kane County and Kendall County

Throughout my career, I have learned that, for many people, talking to an attorney about a possible divorce or another family law dispute can be stressful. In some situations, it can actually increase the amount of anxiety and frustration that the person was already feeling. I also realize that stress and anxiety often represent just a fraction of the emotions that a person might experience in such a situation. If you are facing a divorce or any other type of family law concern, you might be feeling angry, hurt, betrayed, confused, and uncertain about what to do next.

My name is Attorney Matthew M. Williams, and I am the principal attorney at the The Law Office of Matthew M. Williams, P.C. in Aurora, IL. As a family law attorney with more than 15 years of legal experience, I understand the various challenges that often arise in disputes related to family law and divorce. I also get why you might be hesitant to get a lawyer involved. While you could be tempted to try to resolve your case on your own, doing so is almost never advisable. A small oversight or minor mistake could create much more serious problems for you down the road. With my background and knowledge of the law, I am equipped to help you find solutions to your divorce or family law matter.

Divorce Representation in Aurora, Naperville, and Yorkville

In virtually any divorce, there are going to be a number of issues and concerns that must be resolved. If you and your spouse are civil and can cooperate with one another, the process of finding a resolution can be fast and efficient. If there is a great deal of bitterness and contentious, reaching a resolution is likely to be more complicated. Regardless of the situation, I will work with you to help you and your spouse find common ground and to develop a common-sense divorce settlement if possible. I can assist with divorce-related matters such as:

  • Asset division: Identifying, evaluating, and dividing marital property are important components of the divorce process, especially for situations where retirement savings or high-value assets are involved.
  • Spousal support: Also known as maintenance or alimony, spousal support is intended to help minimize the financial effects of a divorce for a lower-earning spouse.
  • Allocation of parental responsibilities: Formerly known as child custody, the allocation of parental responsibilities determines if and how divorcing parents will work together in raising their children. I help couples develop workable parenting plans and parenting time (visitation) schedules.
  • Child support: Under Illinois law, both parents are expected to provide financial support for their children. In some cases, the court may also order both parents to help cover additional expenses related to their children as well.

In addition to divorce-related considerations, I also work with clients in a variety of other family law matters including but not limited to:

No matter what type of family law concern you may have, I can provide the guidance and representation you need.

Collaborative Law Attorney in DuPage County

I am especially proud of my training and experience in the areas of collaborative law and cooperative law. These approaches offer clients freedom and flexibility that is often not available in a "standard" divorce." The goal of collaborative law and cooperative law is to resolve your case while keeping the proceedings out of court. I am a skilled negotiator, and I understand how to facilitate productive cooperation in reaching agreements in even the most complex cases.
