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.

Prenup out of the question? Consider a premarital divorce trust

10971089_s.jpgFor people with substantial personal assets or children from previous relationships, it can be important to protect those assets, and their distribution to intended future beneficiaries, before entering into a marriage. For most people, a well-drafted, enforceable prenuptial agreement is the best legal option. However, for a variety of reasons, some prospective spouses simply won't agree to sign one. What then?

Sharing real reasons for divorce could be hurtful to the kids

13546258_s.jpgIf infidelity was the reason for a split -- maybe mom left dad for another man -- the anger and pain can almost be too much for a father to handle. However, while this is an emotionally trying time, keep in mind that when the idea of divorce is new, especially for younger children, it is important to not divulge too much about the real reason for the divorce, but rather work together to create a stable environment with the same straightforward message.

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.

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.

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.

Create a prenuptial agreement that is enforceable in Illinois

17858915_s.jpgMore and more couples are getting prenuptial agreements before walking down the aisle. The point behind these agreements -- commonly referred to in Illinois as prenups or premarital agreements -- is to address just how property would be divided in the event of a divorce. These are not to jinx a marriage, but are rather to protect the interests of both parties involved.

To sell or not to sell? That is the marital home divorce question

11218023_s.jpgDivorce is one of the leading reasons behind the decision for a couple to put their Illinois home on the market. No longer wanting to live together, and wanting to be able to split the asset, some decide that instead of one moving out, both will move out.
