Kids are owed age-appropriate explanations of divorce

12596490_S.jpgIn today's day and age, it is next to impossible to shield a child from divorce. Whether children see divorce depicted on television, have friends at school who are divorced, or have extended family members who have gone through it, kids don't live in a bubble.

Father fights back against child relocation request

19168235_s.jpgWhen one parent wants to move out of the state with the children, the parent in Illinois cannot just pack up and move. Rather, the other parent needs to approve of this move.
