Caring, Compassionate Legal Help with Illinois Family Law Matters
Chicago Family Law Attorney Rhea A. Dorsam
I'm Rhea Dorsam, a family lawyer helping clients in the greater Chicago area find solutions to their family law challenges. While I handle divorce and child custody issues, my law practice goes much further than that. I strive to address the wide range of issues that a family may face, both in good times and in difficult times.
I offer my clients more than 30 years of legal knowledge and experience, as well as my commitment to personal attention and sensitive legal representation. Whatever your family's legal needs, my law office can help. Contact my Orland Park law office to schedule a free initial consultation. I look forward to assisting you with divorce or any of the following legal matters.
Prenuptial Agreements: Benjamin Franklin wrote, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." He was not thinking of divorce, but his advice is correct. No one marries thinking that they will eventually divorce. Unfortunately, statistics tell us that divorce is not unusual.
A premarital agreement can help couples start their new life feeling secure that their financial needs will be protected. It can ease conflict and minimize expense in the event the relationship ends. It can also protect the inheritance rights of children from a prior marriage. I am experienced in preparing prenuptial agreements that address the goals of each partner in an impending marriage.
Adoption: Adoption is one of the happiest moments in a parent and child's life. The parents accept all of the rights and responsibilities of caring for another human being. The child is welcomed into a loving new home, to be cared for and cherished. Unfortunately, the legal system can be a daunting labyrinth on your journey to family life. Allow me to help you navigate the confusion and bring your family together with a minimum of delay and expense.
Legal Parentage and Paternity: Every child deserves the financial support of two parents. Every father being asked to provide financial support has a right to know if the child is his. When a child is born out of wedlock, the mother or father may ask the court to assist them in determining the legal paternity of the child.
Once parentage has been established, the parents can make decisions regarding child custody, visitation, and child support matters. I can help you with the practical matters of obtaining a DNA test and then assist you in reaching agreement on custody and support. Contact my office for a free consultation.
Domestic Abuse or Violence: If you are being abused, assaulted, stalked, or harassed, you need protection. Take action today to stop being a victim. Do it for yourself and for your children. Call my office at (708) 403-1640 so I can help you get an order of protection. This is a serious matter, and you will have my immediate attention.
Whatever your family's legal need, contact my law office in Orland Park to schedule a free initial consultation. For your convenience, I offer daytime or evening appointments, and I accept Visa and MasterCard.
