Orland Park, IL Attorneys Provide Comprehensive Family Law Representation

The right attorney addresses your legal needs beyond divorce

At The Palmisano Law Group, we’re dedicated to providing comprehensive family law advice and representation. Although most of our practice involves divorce and its ancillary issues, we have vast experience in less common aspects of family law and provide the same exceptional service for clients in these areas:

  • Legal separation
  • Grandparents visitation
  • Sibling visitation

Separation offers legal protections without marriage dissolution

Spouses can physically separate and live apart without a divorce, but only by obtaining a legal separation can they establish a legally enforceable agreement for spousal support, child custody and other issues. Separation may be a step toward marriage dissolution or reconciliation, but putting this legal structure in place helps lessen the likelihood of future disputes.

Helping grandparents and siblings assert their rights to visitation

If grandparents and siblings have an existing positive relationship with a child, a court may decide that continuing the relationship is in the best interest of the child. If one or both parents interfere with that relationship, the alienated grandparents or siblings may petition the court for visitation. Parents who have a good-faith belief that the relationship is harmful to their child can oppose visitation.

Resolving paternity issues for single mothers and fathers

Establishing the legal identity of a child’s father through a paternity proceeding is important to the parents and the child. A legal father can claim the right to custody and visitation, and a single mother can require a legal father to pay child support. In addition to representing mothers, our firm represents putative fathers seeking to establish their fatherhood or challenge the allegation.
