Child support and incarcerated parents

43376116_S-thumb-180x120-78193.jpgIn Illinois, noncustodial parents who are incarcerated are not required to pay child support under certain circumstances. However, this is not the case for prisoners in some other states, and as a result, the Obama administration is moving to put regulations in place that will make it possible for incarcerated parents to have their child support amounts modified.

Selling the house during divorce

35896987_S (1).jpgFor many Illinois couples, their house or condo is their most valuable asset. It is thus not surprising that an impending divorce can create a fair amount of concern about what will happen to their home. Several considerations come into play, including whether the home will need to be sold and when the sale should take place.

Wrongful conviction settlement may be split in divorce

A Illinois man may have to split his wrongful conviction settlement award with his ex-wife. The couple was married while the man was incarcerated for an event that took place before they were married. After the man was exonerated in an appeal, he filed a wrongful conviction lawsuit and was awarded $20 million. The couple was still married when the lawsuit was filed.

Educating people about domestic abuse

40378967_S (1).jpgOctober is designated as Domestic Abuse Awareness Month. The goal is to eliminate the many misconceptions about what domestic violence is and the significant impact that it can have on its victims in Illinois and around the country. One is that the police will take the initial aggressor into custody. Instead, they may take the primary aggressor into custody, which may simply be the person who is deemed to be bigger and stronger.

Shared parenting following a divorce in Illinois

20360301_S (1).jpgWhile divorces can always be difficult, they can be especially complicated if children are involved. In the past, the children would primarily live with one parent while the other parent would have the kids for short periods of time. However, this trend is changing as more courts are becoming aware of the benefits that shared parenting provides for both the children and adults involved.

Factors used to determine who gets a home in a divorce

54394135_S.jpgIt isn't uncommon for Illinois couples who are getting a divorce to wonder who will get the marital home. In many cases, the couple can decide on its own who will keep it or whether it will be sold and the proceeds divided. However, if a couple is unable to come to an agreement on its own, a judge may need to make a ruling.
