Family Law

b2ap3_thumbnail_DuPage-County-alimony-attorneys.jpgWhile alimony awards during divorce are less frequent than they once were, there are times that it is still warranted. The following information explains how you can determine if you might be entitled to support (or required to pay it). You shall also learn how support is calculated during an Illinois divorce, and why legal assistance is recommended for those dealing with alimony issues.

When Alimony May Be Owed

Many situations may lead to a ruling for alimony, but most share a common thread: one spouse is financially disadvantaged. This disadvantage could be caused by a lack of education, job experience, training, health issues, or an extended period outside of the workforce. It can also mean more than an inability to support one’s self; it might also apply if one party has become accustomed to a particular lifestyle during the marriage but is unable to maintain it on their own. The latter is typically seen in high net worth divorces, but the former may occur during any divorce case.

Illinois adoption lawyersAn annually released report from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) indicates that there are nearly 6,000 children in the custody of the state’s foster care system. Estimates suggest that there are as many as 100,000 throughout the country, waiting for a forever family. Unfortunately, there are several misconceptions about these children that ultimately decrease their rate of adoption. This misinformation is not only inaccurate, but it is also damaging to the children in urgent need of a safe and loving home. The following information combats these inaccuracies, and it provides details on where families can find assistance with the foster care adoption process.

You Will Be Pushed into Adopting Extra Children

A lot of people seem to worry that getting involved with the foster care system means taking on more children than they can handle. Quite the opposite is usually true. Although the system is certainly overloaded, DCFS tends to err on the side of caution when placing children with a family. Many of these children have already witnessed abuse or neglect; the last thing they need is a home where they do not receive the love and attention they deserve. So, if you can only adopt one child, speak up and say so. You have control over the size of your family.

Illinois divorce attorneysWhile it is no secret that money problems are a major contributor to the divorce rate, few couples recognize that such issues can also complicate the divorce process. Debt and arguments about debt allocation, which often accompany monetarily complex cases, can also contribute to contention. Learn more about protecting your assets and reducing tension in your divorce with help from the following information.

Understanding the Correlation Between Money and Divorce

Many issues can lead to divorce, but research indicates that early arguments over money are the biggest predictor. Part of this is due to the intensity and duration of the fights that typically occur, but experts believe there are other underlying factors. For example, some relationship experts believe that money issues are an indicator of deeper problems, such as trust issues and power in the relationship.

DuPage County domestic violence attorneysWhen domestic violence victims leave an abusive relationship, they often need protection from their abusers. An order of protection can meet this need, but only if the victim knows which one to pursue. The following information explains the three types of orders of protection in Illinois and offers some insight on where to find assistance while navigating the legal process.

Why Pursue an Order of Protection?

At first glance, an order of protection might seem silly, like nothing more than a piece of paper. However, it does offer some significant benefits to victims. First, it can serve as a form of documentation in a family law case; this may be crucial in situations involving divorce and child-related matters. Second, it gives victims the right to call the police if their abuser violates the order in any way, shape, or form. This includes:

b2ap3_thumbnail_DuPage-County-divorce-lawyers_20170506-101038_1.jpgFew things in this world resemble the American Dream as well as the family-owned business. Unfortunately, not all families stay together. When the marriage that held the family together ends in divorce, some decisions must be made – namely what will happen to the family business. The following explains some of your options and provides details on how to protect your financial interests.
