Fathers are awarded child support too

Divorce planning apps offered for iPhones and Androids

Let's say you have filed for divorce in Illinois. You know you want to protect your rights as a father and you'd like to have a rough estimate of just what you'll be paying in child support -- and possibly alimony -- if it's applicable in your situation.

Celebrity divorces can teach Illinois residents lessons

It seems that every time we turn on the TV or radio, or happen to glance at a celebrity gossip magazine while checking out at the grocery store, yet another celebrity is getting a divorce.

In Missouri, how much a parent will pay in child support -- typically the non-custodial parent -- is determined based on guidelines that take into account parents' gross incomes and different necessary costs for the child, like medical and daycare.

Divorced fathers and "second class citizenship"

It is not uncommon for fathers to feel like they have lost their place and have an uncertain status with their children after a divorce. Fathers may be left out of family events, friend circles and activities with neighbors they used to share their lives with. Fathers in Illinois and nationwide may have a difficult time adjusting to new personal and social arrangements after divorce.

Tips for protecting your investments in the case of a divorce

When it comes to retirement savings accounts, like a 401(k), people often want the best advice when it comes to protecting those assets in the case of a divorce. And while the first piece of advice would be to plan ahead and have a prenuptial agreement before even walking down the aisle, for those without a prenuptial agreement, there are still other options that may be available.
