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?

Co-parenting issues can arise after a divorce

14213031_s.jpgWhile some couples may be able to keep their cool -- or even get along -- during a divorce, when it comes to child custody decisions no two parents should ever just assume that they are always going to continue to agree on everything when it comes to raising their children. Even if the divorce went smoothly, issues can still arise in the future.

Communication tips for divorced parents who cannot get along

15027178_s.jpgIt is hard to not continue to hold a grudge after a divorce in Illinois. Maybe there were hurtful things said during the divorce? Or maybe there was a bitter child custody dispute where each parent wanted sole custody, but now each are sharing responsibilities with joint custody and co-parenting? Whatever the case may be, having to continue to communicate in a civil manner can be downright impossible for some divorced parents. 

Child visitation schedules may change in the summer

20144415_s.jpgSummertime for children is an exciting time. The idea is that with school out of session there is plenty of time for friends, fun and relaxing. For children -- including those in their teenage years -- this is a particularly important time where kids get to enjoy just being kids.

The role of religion in co-parenting

16057952_s.jpgAs many divorced parents in Illinois already know, issues related to child custody and visitation can be contentious enough. However, when parents observe two different religions, coming to some sort of an agreement on how to raise the children can end up being the hardest roads to navigate. 

Illinois parents prepare for common divorce questions

Thumbnail image for 7940593_s.jpgParents in Illinois who are preparing for divorce should know their children are going to have lots of questions. Some of these questions may be hard to answer as the kids could be visibly upset. However, to get through these questions, parents should pay attention to what the children are really looking for, which is typically affirmation not the actual answers to why mom and dad are splitting up.

Part 2: Divorce trends over the years

7363098_s.jpgIn our last post we talked about some divorce trends that many Illinois residents can relate to. These trends include the fact that the overall divorce rate is actually declining, that many older Americans are the ones filing for divorce, and that there are factors -- many times outside of one's control -- that lead to divorce.
