Proven combination: divorce attorney with collaborative law acumen

26312886_S.jpgA financial adviser and wealth manager recently made some comments of a family law-related nature in an article he penned for the Wall Street Journal, which we think some of our readers in Illinois, Missouri and elsewhere might find both relevant and instructive.

Changes to divorce laws in Illinois is possible

15407899_s.jpgLater 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.

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.

Baby boomer divorce: where retirement and divorce meet

14023143_s.jpgThere are more and more people ages 50 and older who are getting divorced. In fact, between 1990 and 2010, the divorce rate among baby boomers doubled. During this time, one in four divorces hit that age group.

Study finds nagging leads to divorce

16472028_s.jpgThere are certainly plenty of reasons why a couple would file for divorce. Infidelity, financial concerns and disagreements over parenting are just some of the many reasons to divorce. And while these are all vital concerns, it turns out that one of the most common reasons for divorce is nagging.

Dealing with trauma during and after divorce

6455459_s (1).jpgDivorce can be emotionally taxing on a person. In fact, divorce can trigger one -- if not all three -- types of trauma: acute, complex and post-traumatic stress disorder. In dealing with any type of trauma, the brain is hardwired to protect a person, which in many cases mean the fight or flight response will kick in. However, this type of response does not always lead to the best decisions being made, for not only the person going through the divorce, but also for their children.

Is divorce more likely at the 3, 7 or 12 year mark?

10162632_s.jpgNo doubt most Illinois residents have heard of the seven-year itch. The phrase itself got popular from the 1955 movie starring Marilyn Monroe. The idea is that after seven years, couples begin to lose interest in each other. In terms of marriage, this can result in divorce.
