DuPage County Divorce Lawyer

Focusing On Your Illinois Divorce Needs

When you are facing a divorce, you have enough on your mind. Your legal counsel should be part of the solution and give you the personal attention and tailored representation that you need to get through a difficult time. As a DuPage County divorce attorney, Ms. Scurto is focused on providing personalized service to her clients, who appreciate the dedicated and solution-oriented representation she provides. Sherby will work closely with you throughout the process, not her assistants or paralegal.

Starting the Divorce Process

As an Oakbrook Terrace family law lawyer, Sherby has extensive experience helping people begin the marriage dissolution process. There a few essential first steps that must be taken, including:

  • Initial assessment — When you work with Sherby, she provides a free initial consultation. She will assess your goals and discuss the best approach for resolving your situation as quickly and equitably as possible.
  • Filing — Once the decision to divorce is made, one party files a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with the court.
  • Summons — The non-filing party receives a summons and has 30 days to file a response. This starts the divorce process.

Resolving the Issues With Quick, Equitable Settlements

Once the process has begun, Sherby will work to reach agreement on all the relevant issues surrounding the end of a marriage, including:

Sherby has seen how courtroom battles tear families apart. That is why she works hard at finding solutions to these issues quickly, so they are settled before you even get to court to finalize the divorce.

Sherby’s approach can save you the time and expense of ongoing litigation. It also reduces the strain between you and your ex-spouse, which is important because you will need to function as co-parents to your children after the divorce. Avoiding the trial process is also simply better for the kids — they do not need to see their parents fighting over the future. From my Oakbrook Terrace law office, she provides a safe, comfortable setting in which you can discuss your case.

Dedicated to Helping Veterans and Service Members

Sherby is an Army veteran, who understand the unique issues that confront military families in divorce. She has the skill and experience to help you with the division of military benefits and can guide you through the sometimes complicated issues surrounding child custody and visitation when a parent is deployed. You can trust in her knowledge of the issues to help guide you through a difficult time.
