Energy tycoon's divorce case centers on division of assets

12394625_S.jpgSometimes celebrity-related stories regarding family law topics are more than purely entertaining. For many people, indeed, they can be highly instructive and broadly relevant, notwithstanding the sometimes singularly large dimensions of what is at stake.

Illinois child custody bill would tweak existing statutory law

15423685_S.jpgIn matters relating to physical and legal custody in a divorce proceeding, judges in both Illinois and Missouri make decisions guided by the best interests of the child or children involved.

Marital contracts: on the rise and covering more ground

26008597_S.jpgNoting in a recent media article that "the stigma that was once attached to these agreements is fading," one family law attorney echoes what many of her peers across the country say regarding prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, namely this: Such contracts are on the rise, and for a number of reasons.

Case ruling on dads in the delivery room draws scrutiny

13481156_S.jpgReportedly, although many family law cases in recent years have expanded the rights of fathers in matters regarding child custody, visitation and other considerations, no litigation ruling had ever issued until recently concerning a dad's right to be present in the delivery room.

Finding funding for Missouri's domestic violence shelters

24086448_S.jpgThankfully, there are a lot of shelters in Missouri that provide critically needed support in myriad forms to individuals -- both women and men -- and other family members who are victimized by domestic violence.

Sometimes, however, parents forget to address certain aspects of child support, which can create problems in the future.

US congressman facing domestic violence allegations

20138370_S.jpgWe have written before on our Illinois fathers' rights blog about how judges may feel they have little choice in a domestic violence case but to issue a temporary protective order against the person who has been accused -- often, the husband and father -- even in the absence of anything other than the word of the alleged victim.

Staying together for the kids could do them more harm than good

11343382_S.jpgWhen it comes to determining child custody arrangements in the event of a divorce in Illinois, there are many considerations to be made. One refrain that is often heard is that the best interests of the children ought to be at the forefront of discussions regarding custody. This often means, for example, taking into account where each parent lives and their availability vis-a-vis work schedules and other obligations, so that kids suffer the least amount of disruption in their lives and still see each parent as much as possible.
