Chicago Divorce Attorney Tanya Witt As a female Chicago divorce attorney, I am often asked if I represent both men and women.  Yes, I am proud to represent both men and women.  The most important attributes in a family law attorney are honesty, really listening, knowledge and experience, caring about the client’s goals, and putting the client’s interests before the attorney’s interests.

Some attorneys bulldoze over their client’s reasonable requests and goals.  Perhaps it is due to ego or a lack of compassion on the part of some attorneys.  I am very mindful and respectful that it is the client’s life, finances and children that are at issue in the case.  I help my clients thrive.

Divorce and dissolution of marriage mean the same thing.  Regardless of which term you use, when it comes to Chicago divorce you are in good hands with The Witt Law Firm, P.C. 


In Chicago divorce cases, courts may award maintenance (formerly known as “alimony”) to a spouse who has insufficient income to cover his or her reasonable and necessary expenses. Learn about the 14 factors that influence maintenance amount and duration.


Property division in a divorce requires determining marital versus non-marital property. All property must be classified before a divorce can be finalized.


The allocation of parental responsibilities is the legal phrase in Illinois for child custody and visitation. 


Child support is the amount of money that a non-custodial parent must pay the custodial parent to cover expenses for his or her minor child. Child support covers basic needs such as food, clothing and housing, and well as costs for extracurricular activities, transportation, medical expenses, private school and day care.


A lot of dads today are very involved in caring for their children. When the parents are unmarried, Illinois law presumes that the mother has sole allocation of parental responsibilities (“child custody”). Unmarried fathers need a court order to overcome the presumption that the mother of the child has sole custody.


High-net-worth divorces may have more options available than a “typical” divorce. The Witt Law Firm frequently represents parties in high-net-worth divorces in Chicago.  There are unique aspects to high-net-worth divorces.
