Legal Separation

Some clients ask us about legal separation as an alternative or a precursor to divorce. While it's an interesting and moderately popular topic of discussion, the fact is that legal separation, per se, is not common in Illinois. What is common in successful family law cases is proper divorce planning.

We have been providing guidance and representation on these critical matters since 1990. Our lawyers have earned a reputation for being smart and compassionate.

At The Muller Firm, in Chicago, we advise and represent men and women in complicated family law matters related to:
