Later this week a judiciary hearing committee is scheduled to review some proposed changes to Illinois laws regarding divorce and child custody. These proposals would change the way decisions are made regarding family law issues throughout the state. In our last post we focused on the child custody proposals, now we will take a look at the possible changes to the divorce laws in Illinois.
When talking about divorce, we often think of the couple who is fighting over every dish, knife and bowl in the house. These are the people who go through a contentious divorce where every aspect of child custody, child support, property division and alimony is fought over in the courtroom. However, the truth is that not all divorces go like this. Rather, some go out of their way to be nice and courteous, and even end up financially hurting themselves in an attempt to not rock the boat.
