Domestic violence victims need support to leave and survive

29382309_S.jpgDomestic violence can be a deeply dangerous threat to people in unhealthy relationships in Illinois on both a physical and an emotional level. Abuse in a relationship is a betrayal of trust as well as a form of physical, verbal, psychological or emotional violence that frequently escalates to a point of endangering a victim's health.

The military and child support

42671839_S (1).jpgSometimes getting child support from a parent can be difficult. Illinois residents who are owed child support by someone who is in the military should be aware that the regulations and processes for calculating and obtaining child support differs from those that govern non-military parents.

The lingering effects of domestic violence in divorce cases

21924128_S.jpgEmotions often run high during a divorce, and the first year of separation can be particularly difficult and dangerous for estranged spouses who have been the victims of domestic violence and abuse. This is the period when decisions are made about important matters like child custody and visitation, and the lingering effects of family violence can have a profound impact on how abused victims approach these issues according to research from the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Illinois.

Immigrants especially vulnerable to domestic violence

44354719_S.jpgLeaving an abusive relationship can be very difficult for many Illinois women. Pressure to stay with an abuser often arises from a person's lack of income, homelessness and no access to health care. Among immigrants, especially individuals without documentation to be in the country, barriers to action include fear of deportation, poor English language skills and little understanding of legal rights.

Preparation, evidence can help fathers seek full custody

22162521_S.jpgFathers in Illinois going through a divorce are often worried about being ripped away from their children. This is intensified even more in situations of abuse, addiction and other contexts in which fathers want to achieve sole, rather than joint or shared, custody of their children. Many fathers may worry about a potential bias toward mothers in family court or preconceived ideas about a man's role in child-rearing.

Divorced fathers and co-parenting

6372318_S.jpgWhen couples with children get divorced, it can sometimes be difficult for fathers to remain as actively involved with their children as they were before the divorce. However, there are certain steps fathers can take to make sure that they are involved in their children's lives.
