Child Custody Attorney Serving Jersey County Illinois

Divorce settlements tend to get more complex when children are involved. Child custody and child support agreements can be hard for parents to agree on. However, each parent has the opportunity to work things out and come to an agreement via mediation before it’s taken to court. If neither parent can agree on a resolution, the decision is made by the courts; they take into consideration what is in the child’s best interest when they decide on custody arrangements.

When it comes to child support, it is based on two factors: how much money each parent makes and the amount of parenting time each one gets in accordance with the custody agreement. If you want your parental rights protected and are trying to look out for you and your child’s best interests – contact Michael A. Hankins Attorney at Law.

Traffic Law Attorney Serving Jersey County Illinois

If you are cited with a traffic violation, the impact can be greater than you may think. Traffic citations don’t just result in fines. Other consequences include a possible license suspension if the violation is severe enough or if it is not your first citation within a year. Additionally, if you are found guilty of the citation, you run the risk of increasing your insurance premium. Although you can fight the ticket on your own, hiring an experienced traffic law attorney can be extremely helpful.

We may not be able to help you avoid the fine; however, we can argue down the charge and possibly have it removed from your driving record – which means it doesn’t count against you and your insurance premium won’t change.

  • Moving Violations
