Customer Question

I am in need of a reputable, successful, attorney in the Rockford, IL area to represent me in a child support case with my ex-wife and a divorce from my current wife. Due to a couple surgeries and inpatient rehabs I paid my ex-wife the same percentage
of the lower income I was receiving while on disability. We had a verbal agreement and I was unaware that I was actually required to get the original amount of $220/wk. adjusted to reflect the change in income. She was fine with that arrangement and never
complained until many years later when I terminated child support after my youngest daughter was already 20 years old. Now she is trying to sue me for $20,000 and has taken my unemployment and trying for my 401k. I lost my job last month and will be losing
my home soon. I am very unhappy with the attorney I am currently using and I feel poorly represented. So I could a little advice and an aggressive attorney. Thank you!

Unfortunately, we are not permitted to provide you with a specific referral (it is one of the rules we have to agree to as experts on the forum), but I can provide you with some resources to find a local attorney that can help you find an attorney that can either provide you with a second opinion or pick up representation for you (take on a more aggressive approach).You can find local attorneys using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
