Family Law Practice Areas

At Susan E. Kamman & Associates, we combine a passion for helping our clients with a thorough understanding of the law. We work with you and for you in exploring all possible solutions to your divorce or other family-law matter. Specific areas of our practice include:

Divorce

Future relationships with your children and financial stability are at stake in the agreements made during a divorce, whether it is contested or uncontested. You need an experienced lawyer who employs cutting-edge resources in identifying solutions on your behalf. Ending a marital relationship is emotionally taxing and legally complex. Other options include annulment and legal separation.

Property division

At Susan E. Kamman & Associates, we possess a comprehensive understanding of financial issues in complex divorces. Clients come to our firm seeking to protect their valuable property, recover dissipated assets and locate a spouse's hidden funds. We attend to every detail, teaming with forensic accountants to create a comprehensive financial picture that often includes:

Parental Allocation and Parenting Time

Decisions involving parental allocation and parenting time, or what we used to call parents "custody" and "visitation", are challenging for parents to resolve. Even in mediation or negotiation, mothers and fathers can get involved in heated disputes over the creation of a parenting plan. While we prefer to resolve these issues in a more cooperative setting, we prepare all types of parental allocation cases for trial.

Child support

The unique aspects of child support in Illinois require a skilled attorney with in-depth experience in and out of the courtroom. Susan E. Kamman is recognized statewide for her child support knowledge. Mrs. Kamman chaired the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) Family Law Section Council Child Support Subcommittee four times, served on the HFS Child Support Advisory Committee, and has co-authored two revisions to the Illinois Child Support Statute. Today, she continues to track pending legislation. That contemporary knowledge is invaluable to our clients as they focus on their children's well-being and development.

Maintenance/Alimony

Establishing lifestyles following a divorce requires an attorney with expertise in that specific area of spousal maintenance law. Susan E. Kamman possesses a thorough knowledge involving maintaining a way of life for one spouse via financial support from the other, particularly in light of recent modifications to the Illionois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act.

In addition to the above areas of practice, we provide dedicated and aggressive representation in the following areas:

Personalized and Customized Resolutions to Your Family-Law Matters

Some clients come to us needing an aggressive litigator. Others want the skills of a savvy negotiator. Regardless of your specific needs, we apply the best techniques and most effective strategies to your case.
