Child Custody Attorney Serving Schuyler County Illinois

If you are going through a divorce and have children, things tend to get complicated. While both parents have an opportunity to reach a custody agreement outside of the courtroom, if they are unable to agree on terms – it is left for the courts to decide. The courts always consider what is in the child’s best interest when making a custody decision. After a custody battle, what tends to follow is child support. Child support is based on two factors: the amount of time each parent has with the child and the amount of money each parent makes.

At Michael A. Hankins Attorney at Law, we know the importance of parental rights and use our experience to reach resolutions that are in our client’s best interests

Traffic Law Attorney Serving Schuyler County Illinois

Unfortunately, being cited with a traffic ticket isn’t as simple as paying a fine and moving on with your life. There are more consequences than you might think.

While you can fight the ticket on your own, if you don’t have the necessary understanding of traffic law – it could be more beneficial to hire an experienced attorney who does.
