Man wins lawsuit after getting fired for divorce

45947878_S.jpgIf you are getting divorced, there will be days you will not feel like going to work. But the fact that you have separated from your spouse or are getting a divorce should not affect your job security. In other words, hopefully you won't get fired because your boss finds out you have filed for divorce.

Illiniois dads hold 'Fatherless Day' protest outside courthouse

15039344_S.jpgWith Father's Day taking place last Sunday, we hope that most dads in Illinois enjoyed spending time with their children. However, many fathers do not get to see their kids as often as they would like, because their former spouse has sole physical custody.

Three things to consider before your settlement conference

13044484_S.jpgIf you are considering divorce or are in the midst of a proceeding, it is likely that will be ordered to attend a settlement conference. Similar to mediation, a settlement conference is an opportunity for the parties to sit down and get to the heart of the issues to see if any of them can be resolved.

How parents can get along after divorce

7221800_S.jpgA successful co-parenting relationship may be the furthest thing on your mind as you prepare to get divorced, but it should be.

Behavior is a huge factor during divorce

11382939_S.jpgWhen you are going through divorce, one of the most important things you can do is behave yourself. Behavior is a major contributing factor to some divorce disasters, such as having public meltdowns that leave you legally liable for something. This behavior is unacceptable and can lead to more problems for you, and your wallet, as you proceed through divorce.

Beware non-attorneys that promise to help you get divorced

18206625_S.jpgOne thing that stops many people from filing for divorce is that it costs money. If one or both spouses want to, they can drag out the process by fighting over every single piece of marital property, costing both parties more in legal fees and court costs.

What can be done about oppressive child support payments?

34690105_S.jpgMost fathers who are assigned a child support obligation may think that they are paying too much. After all, the obligation may not always reflect the cost of diapers and formula, clothing and of course, the costs surrounding transportation. And depending on how old a child may be, the inconsequential costs continue to add up.

Court lets Italian father pay child support in pizza

19271412_S.jpgAs the years go by, what was once an affordable child support order may no longer be feasible. For example, say at the time of divorce the noncustodial parent agrees to pay $800 per month to the custodial parent. He or she has a steady job and can afford it.
