Communication is key: sharing parenting time over summer vacation

5981543_s.jpgHere's to a happy and meaningful Memorial Day for all parents and kids. With the unofficial beginning of summer at hand, however, many unmarried and divorced parents are about to begin what can be one of the most challenging times of year for positive co-parenting: summer vacation.

Study: Marriage does not always equal happiness

11683318_s (1).jpgThere are plenty of spouses in Illinois who are having serious problems in their marriage, yet believe it is somehow healthier to stay together than it is to split up. In some cases these couples have children together and do not want to break-up the family. In other cases, spouses are just afraid of what the future would look like.

Proposed changes to Illinois child custody laws

12736557_m.jpgIn general, laws need to be updated to reflect societal changes. This is especially true when it comes to family law where there have been many changes over the years, including mothers not automatically being favored when it comes to child custody agreements. However, for change to be effective, lawmakers need to take the time to gather information and propose changes that not only make sense, but are also in the best interests of everyone involved -- parents and children.

Divorce can become even more complicated with bigamy

7197053_s (1).jpgLegally, a man cannot be married to more than one woman at a time. In cases where it is discovered that a husband has two or more wives, the courts will become involved. When children are involved with any of these wives, the entire situation can become even more complicated.

Should police run criminal checks on domestic abuse victims?

Criminal Background Check.jpgAs a society, we tend to focus on domestic violence from the standpoint of a wife or girlfriend being abused. And while there are certainly plenty of cases where in abusive relationships this is the case, it is also important to keep in mind that abuse can go both ways and that there are plenty of husbands and boyfriends who are in abusive relationships.

Safe zones for child custody exchanges

For parents with particularly contentious relationships, drop off and pick up times for custody and visitation exchanges can be quite challenging. Especially in situations where there is the threat -- or perceived threat -- of domestic violence, parents want to make sure they are safe and so are their children.

Supervised visitation sometimes an option for Illinois parents

Every parent has the right to a relationship with their child. Even in cases where the parents are going through a nasty divorce full of domestic abuse allegations, children should still be able to spend time with both of their parents.

Will parental relocation affect child custody in Illinois?

There are a number of different reasons why a parent would want to move after a divorce. Maybe the family home is just no longer affordable. Or maybe the neighborhood or county where the family used to live in Illinois is just not longer financially feasible. However, before either parent just picks up and moves, it's important to first learn about relocation.
