Rolling Meadows Division Of Civil Union Lawyer

Palatine Family Law Attorney for Same-Sex Couples

Although Illinois has passed the same sex marriage law as of June 1, 2014, there are still many people who still remain in a civil union. If a couple decides that they don't want to be in a civil union with one another anymore, it is called a division of a civil union or dissolution. This will happen under the same laws as an opposite-sex marriage. When Governor Pat Quinn signed the Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act in January 2011, this law allowed couples in a civil union to have some of the same benefits that are available to married couples. This included the ability to visit a sick partner in the hospital or make decisions about a loved one's medical care.

The Law Offices of Donald J. Cosley deals with a variety of different cases on a daily basis. Those who would like to dissolve their civil union have to take into consideration many of the same issues as a married couple that wants to get divorced would. If you and your partner are considering a separation, it is important to seek the help of a professional civil union division lawyer so you have the guidance to help you make the right decisions. We provide full representation for the division of civil unions and other family law matters.

Experienced Family Law Lawyers

For over 20 years, the Law Offices of Donald J. Cosley has been using our skilled and talented lawyers to help families and couples in the Rolling Meadows, Illinois area and the surrounding suburbs with issues like gay and lesbian family law, divorce, legal separation, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and more. We understand that a civil union is not the same as a marriage, but going through the process of dividing can be just as complicated as divorce. Depending on the case, all property, debt, and assets are still a major concern. And if there are children involved, child custody, child support, and visitation arrangements will have to be made.

If the couple is not able to make these divisions with the help of a lawyer, the courts will have to step in and a judge will make the decision. We stand by our clients and will defend the rights of our clients during any court case. The Law Offices of Donald J. Cosley can assist you with any aspects of the division of your civil union and guide you through the process as smoothly as possible. Our division of civil union lawyers use different strategies in order to make each case successful, and the approach to these strategies are what creates positive results.
