Survey: Most find cheating to be morally wrong

Thumbnail image for 6614519_s.jpgInfidelity, while more common than one might think, is frequently looked down upon as a society. Some have been in the situation where they were the ones to cheat on a husband or wife, while others have been the ones that were cheated on. In many cases, infidelity leads to divorce.

Property division: Some lose the marital home in divorce

8792975_s.jpgThose living in Illinois who have gone through a divorce -- or are going through a divorce -- can attest to the fact that there are many factors that come into play when it comes to property division. And, whether a couple was married for 20 years or two years, each spouse is at risk of losing out on valuable property. 

Communication is key: sharing parenting time over summer vacation

5981543_s.jpgHere's to a happy and meaningful Memorial Day for all parents and kids. With the unofficial beginning of summer at hand, however, many unmarried and divorced parents are about to begin what can be one of the most challenging times of year for positive co-parenting: summer vacation.

Prenup out of the question? Consider a premarital divorce trust

10971089_s.jpgFor people with substantial personal assets or children from previous relationships, it can be important to protect those assets, and their distribution to intended future beneficiaries, before entering into a marriage. For most people, a well-drafted, enforceable prenuptial agreement is the best legal option. However, for a variety of reasons, some prospective spouses simply won't agree to sign one. What then?

Struggling Illinois dads: Look into child support modification

13044070_s.jpgIn Illinois, the amount a father will pay in child support is based on statutory guidelines. The No. 1 factor in these guidelines is how much the father earns. However, other factors are also considered, such as if the father is already paying child support for another child from another relationship, alimony costs, child care costs and medical costs. All of this information is gathered in order to determine how much a father should be paying in child support each month.

Sharing real reasons for divorce could be hurtful to the kids

13546258_s.jpgIf infidelity was the reason for a split -- maybe mom left dad for another man -- the anger and pain can almost be too much for a father to handle. However, while this is an emotionally trying time, keep in mind that when the idea of divorce is new, especially for younger children, it is important to not divulge too much about the real reason for the divorce, but rather work together to create a stable environment with the same straightforward message.

Charlie Sheen's ex-wife awarded temporary custody of twin boys

11840868_s.jpgAny time a family law decision is made involving a celebrity, there is a very high chance this decision will end up being highly pulicized in the media. Of course, most Illinois fathers couldn't care less about the family law proceedings of someone like Charlie Sheen. However, many times -- taking the celebrity status out of the picture -- there are many lessons that can be learned from these celebrity cases. 

Children and divorce: Pets can help with transition

8131629_s.jpgWhen parents are going through a divorce, they understandably tend to worry about the big picture things, such as how much child support is going to be every month and what the child custody arrangement is going to look like. Of course, these are very important aspects of a divorce, however, parents need to keep in mind that this is an especially trying time for the children too.

Study: Marriage does not always equal happiness

11683318_s (1).jpgThere are plenty of spouses in Illinois who are having serious problems in their marriage, yet believe it is somehow healthier to stay together than it is to split up. In some cases these couples have children together and do not want to break-up the family. In other cases, spouses are just afraid of what the future would look like.
