Dissolving A Civil Union In Illinois
Providing The Guidance You Need
The intention of the act is to allow civil unions and to provide for a legal protocol if the parties wish to dissolve the union; the protocol is similar to that of a divorce. There are exceptions, however. To navigate these exceptions, it is important that you have knowledgeable legal guidance.
Federal laws take precedence over state statutes. For instance, the division of a federal military pension or retirement would require marriage and is therefore not allowed in the dissolution of a civil union.
Should you decide to dissolve a civil union, we are skilled in property division and the family law issues you would face. Our lawyers are prepared to handle your case, protecting your assets and family interests.
