Child support and private school tuition

22875714_S.jpgIn some Illinois divorces, private school education for the children may be at issue. Some parents may want their children to attend private schools when the other parents do not feel that it is necessary. Whether or not a judge will order the non-custodial parent to contribute financially to the child's private school costs will depend on a number of factors.

Divorcing the spouse and the house

33871317_S.jpgA substantial concern of divorcing spouses in Illinois is what will happen to their homes after they are separated. Those concerns can be especially heightened if one spouse is interested in retaining the property. Many times, the reasons for wanting to keep the home are based purely on emotional attachment. However, this might not be the wisest financial decision.

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian to continue to co-parent

22393656_S.jpgIllinois residents who follow celebrities may be aware of the messy breakup between television personality Rob Kardashian and model Blac Chyna. On July 11, Blac Chyna took the breakup one step further when she was granted a restraining order. Even so, the model said that she intended to make co-parenting with the child's father work.

Preparing for child support modification requests

37314715_S.jpgChild support can be modified at times if there is a material change in the financial circumstances of the parties, especially the parent obligated to pay. A job loss or reduction of income, or a substantial increase in income, additional dependents or other event may trigger a modification of support. Illinois parents who have gone through a divorcee and who have minor children should become familiar with the documentation needed.

The different forms of domestic abuse

39243756_S.jpgAccording to the U.S. Surgeon General, domestic violence is a leading health concern. However, Illinois residents may not necessarily know what domestic violence looks or feels like. This may stop victims from reporting abuse or prevent friends and family members of an abuse victim from seeking help on that person's behalf. The definition of domestic abuse is abusive behavior used by a person to gain control over a partner.

About "Malicious Mother Syndrome"

Although the Malicious Mother Syndrome is not identified by the medical profession as a disorder, Illinois parents 12648784_S.jpgwho are embroiled in extremely contentious divorce or custody disputes should be able to identify the conduct. Despite its name, both fathers and mothers can exhibit the behavior, and thus it is often referred to as Malicious Parent Syndrome.

Father-child relationships are important

62831760_S.jpgIn Illinois and around the country, there has been a shift in the way people think about the father-child relationship. While mothers have often been the primary caretakers of their children, fathers have increasingly stepped into the role. In some cases, however, social attitudes have minimized men's contribution to the development of their children.

More immigrants demanding custody services

11396009_S.jpgSince the election of President Trump, many undocumented immigrant parents in Illinois fear that they may be separated from their children if they are found and deported. This has led lots of families to seek legal help with custody paperwork that involves designating other friends or family as caregivers in the event of a separation.
