Dissolution of Civil Unions Attorney Oak Park and Oak Brook

Under the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act, both gay and lesbian couples and heterosexual couples who choose not to get married have important legal rights. The status of a civil union is equal to that of a marriage, with some exceptions.

I am Gabrielle S. Davis, a family law attorney with more than 20 years of experience, and I believe that all couples deserve to have similar rights. My law firm in Oak Park and Oak Brook, Illinois, welcomes civil union cases. In addition, I have experience assisting individuals from out of state who need to dissolve their civil unions.


My practice is dedicated to offering effective and compassionate legal representation in all civil union issues. One of the most common issues is how to dissolve a civil union. To do so, you must have a court order. In addition, a court order will determine child support payments and child custody arrangements for any children involved.

My law firm can also:

  • Clearly explain the benefits and limitations of a civil union
  • Help you take advantage of the protection offered by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act
  • Advise you about health insurance, pensions, Social Security and other dissolution-related concerns
  • Draft a prenuptial agreement for you, if necessary


Whether you are currently in a civil union and contemplating dissolution or you simply have questions about your legal rights, contact the law office of Gabrielle S. Davis, P.C. I offer free initial in-office consultations in Oak Park or Oak Brook, Illinois. Call my firm at (708) 358-0901 or contact me online.
