DuPage County IL Divorce Lawyers

When You Need an Elmhurst Attorney Who Understands the Importance of Family

At the Law Offices of Laura M. Urbik Kern, we believe that while each client is represented by one attorney, we very often practice family law with a team approach. Our clients receive the benefit of both attorneys' knowledge and experience. Likewise, we hope and expect that our clients partner with us in crafting and carrying out the most reasonable and cost-effective legal solutions applicable to their own unique family circumstances.

A Holistic Type of Family Law Practice

Additionally, at the Law Offices of Laura M. Urbik Kern, children's security and well-being are at the forefront in all practice areas of the law. We maintain a child-centered law practice and aim to serve as advocates for children and their interests in all areas of family law and other areas of law that affect families, such as:

The primary focus of this law firm when children are involved is to support and protect the children's best interests in any way that the law allows.

Additionally, individuals who seek divorce in marriages where no children or the children are grown are present are also an important part of our practice and welcome to contact the Law Offices of Laura M. Urbik Kern by phone or through this website. We are also adept at handling all types of property division, retirement and real estate matters that are present during a divorce action.

We see our role as being educators as well as lawyers. We devote a great deal of time and effort to keeping up-to-date in both legal and psychological issues through continuing legal education. As part of our legal counsel and representation, we seek to teach our clients the essential elements of what we have learned through years of experience in family law.

We Handle Divorce, Guardianship, Paternity and Other Legal Issues Pertaining to Families and Children

Our clients include couples who are divorcing, grandparents seeking legal clarity in relationships with their grandchildren, and young people who have been charged with a crime. Although we usually represent parents, children's financial and emotional well-being remains our number one focus in nearly all advice and legal services that we offer.

We Promote the Use of Mediation and Collaborative Law

When conflicts must be resolved, we advocate mediation, collaborative law and other forms of nonadversarial dispute resolution. In some cases, however, litigation is the only solution. This may be the case if one spouse is attempting to hide assets or is otherwise failing to cooperate in the divorce, child custody or support negotiations.
