Rolling Meadows Division Of Civil Union Attorney
On January 31, 2011, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed into law the Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act. This Act allowed same-sex and opposite-sex couples to enter into civil unions, giving them some of the same benefits that are available to married couples. These rights include the ability to visit a sick partner in the hospital and make decisions about a loved one's medical care.
Of course, along with the rights bestowed by civil unions are the considerations that must be made when it is time for those unions to be dissolved. The division of a civil union has many of the same considerations as a divorce and it is important to have the guidance of an experienced attorney. At the Law Offices of Donald J. Cosley, in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, our firm provides representation for the division of civil unions and other family law matters.
Experienced Family Law Attorneys
Even though a civil union is not the same as a marriage, it can be just as difficult to dissolve. The division of property, debts and assets is still a legitimate concern. If there are children involved, the birth parent and the adopted parent will still have to work out where the child will reside and what an appropriate visitation schedule will be.
If a mutual custody agreement and agreement on the division of assets cannot be reached, the final decision will be made by the court.
