Older kids more impacted by divorce than younger children

6865191_S.jpgIt goes without saying that any child whose parents divorce will feel the impact of that decision sooner or later. What parents might want to consider when they are considering a divorce is the timing of that impact. Immediate child custody issues aside, it might take years for a divorce to really settle in for a young person.

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. They will be curious about the idea of divorce, and often fearful that it will happen to their family too.

Celebrity moms targeted for not allowing dads to see their kids

8571352_S.jpgMany family law cases in Illinois don't necessarily make the news. Families break up all the time these days, so getting a divorce is hardly a novelty. For movie stars, however, almost nothing is private. Celebrities who get married in the public eye often can't expect privacy when they get divorced.

Illinois child custody exchange sites play important role

12619570_S.jpgCo-parenting is very difficult for many Illinois residents. Even when a divorced couple's relationship remains fairly amicable, it can be tough for exes to get on the same page when it comes to parenting. And, when the relationship between ex-spouses is adverse - as is often the case after divorce - sharing physical and/or legal custody of children is easier said than done.

Father's life turned upside down after false accusations of abuse

14657045_s.jpgAllegations of domestic abuse sometimes come up during divorce, child custody, and paternity proceedings in Illinois. In some cases, accusations are completely false. But, even when claims of domestic violence prove to be unfounded, the accused person's reputation and relationships still take a major hit.

International parental abduction threatens father's rights

10526224_s.jpgThere are few legal battles that rival child custody disputes when it comes to the value of what is at stake. Under Illinois law, courts are tasked with deciding child custody or visitation disputes based on the best interests of the children involved. That means that it is imperative for parents to be able to prove to a judge why it is in a child's best interest to be in their care.

Communication and consistency important for children of divorce

10096783_s.jpgWhen two parents decide to divorce, how they break the news to their children and how they go about setting up visitation schedules afterwards can be crucial. This is one area where parents certainly want to put a lot of planning into in order for their children to not harbor any resentment later on down the road. 

How divorced parents handle financial aid applications

22079240_s.jpgWhen it comes to applying for financial aid, divorced parents often struggle when it comes to who should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, commonly referred to as FASFA. Should it be the custodial parent? Does who pays child support play a role in who should file? What about a stepparent? Should there information be included?
