Determining whether a prenuptial agreement is right for you

43433220_S.jpgShould you and your spouse sign a prenuptial agreement before walking down the aisle? It's a difficult question to answer, and you shouldn't decide on anything without having some thorough conversation with your spouse. The two of you need to be on the same page before signing such an important document.

Bitter battles not a prerequisite for protecting fathers' rights

7475205_S.jpgUnder family laws in Illinois, fathers have the same rights and obligations as mothers. Although the letter of the law does not preference one parent over another based on gender, divorce settlements and custody orders don't always reflect that ideal.

Maintaining the grandparent-grandchild relationship after divorce

21895862_S.jpgWhen married parents get divorced, any custody decisions made by the court are likely to affect more than just the children and their two parents. In many cases, grandparents also experience the consequences of a child custody agreement - sometimes for better but often for worse. An acrimonious divorce can even lead to severed ties between grandparents and the grandchildren they love.

Study suggests cheating is likelier near the end of a relationship

In the wake of the Ashley Madison hacking scandal, in which millions of the site's users were publicly outed, there has been a lot of public discussion about infidelity: Why do people cheat on their spouses? Does "looking around" online mean that someone is going to cheat? Are human beings meant to be monogamous, or is monogamy just a social convention?

Food Network star will be paying thousands in child support

2562346_S.jpgThe traditional notions of child support and spousal support were very gender-specific. In both cases, it was assumed that men (as the higher earners or only earners) would make monthly payments to their ex-wives and pay child support on behalf of their children. Of course, it was also the norm for women to be granted full custody.

Fighting for the rights of parents to be parents

10511714_S.jpgWhether an individual is going through a divorce or break up, everything changes when a child is involved. A child forever bonds two individuals together, even when both would rather part ways forever and have absolutely nothing to do with one another. For a parent, the end of a marriage or relationship with a child's mother or father means that an agreement with regard to child custody and visitation must be made.

When a divorce doesn't make sense to those outside the marriage

11307310_S.jpgOn this blog, we often focus on the common reasons people get divorced: Infidelity, reckless spending, abuse/neglect and trust issues, just to name a few. And, of course, couples may just realize over time that they are incompatible with one another. All of these reasons for divorce are valid and understandable.

How your divorce may impact your child's college funding: Part II

8875251_S.jpgIn our last post, we began a discussion about divorce and its potential impacts on funding college for your kids. If you have minor children and are seeking custody, you may have more immediate concerns than paying for college - especially if your children are still very young.
