No couple gets married thinking that they will be unable to weather disagreements or that their relationship is going to end. Nevertheless, every day, couples choose to end their relationships and file for divorce. At the Law Office of Lela J. Davis, we provide representation to clients who are seeking divorce throughout Cook & Will County, Illinois.

Experienced Divorce Representation

Our years of experience as a divorce attorney allows us to serve clients in all manner of situations. We routinely represent clients regarding issues common in contested divorces, such as:

  • Property division, including questions about the family home, retirement accounts and other assets
  • Maintenance (formerly called Alimony)
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support

We also advise and represent clients who are seeking uncontested divorces. An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties have agreed to all the terms of the divorce, including property division, maintenance, child custody and support. Once advised of the agreed terms, we prepare the necessary documentation for the parties to sign to obtain their divorce. When the matter is uncontested, the parties divorce hearing is a shortened "prove up" rather than a trial.

No matter whether a divorce is contested or uncontested, we provide our clients with advice specially tailored to their situations. We work personally with clients to ensure that they understand the process, know what to expect and are able to begin the next chapter of their lives as quickly as possible. While we may first seek to solve disagreements through careful negotiation, we will not hesitate to recommend litigation if it is necessary to help our clients achieve their goals.
