Family Law

DuPage County family law attorneysAs divorce becomes less stigmatized, and families grow more aware of the negative impact that family strife can have on children, more couples are opting for unconventional post-divorce family models. Some use birdnesting. Others choose a 50/50 split on the allocation of parenting responsibilities and parenting time. Still others have separate lives but continue to have family outings and vacations together. Which option is right for your family? The following may help you decide.

Live-In Parenting Models

Some parents get along well enough that they can use a live-in model after the divorce. This can range from all-out living together as a family, 24/7, to birdnesting – a model in which children stay in the family home but parents rotate in and out. How do you know if one of these options may be appropriate for your family?

Illinois divorce attorneysThe National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) estimates that approximately 20 people are abused by an intimate partner each minute in the United States. That equates to more than 10 million victims per year. Some of them are married, unsure of how to escape, and afraid of what might happen if they try to pursue a divorce. An attorney may be able to help.

Guiding You Through the Process

When you are dealing with both domestic violence and divorce, it is crucial that you have someone to guide you through the process. You need someone who can stand up for your rights and protect them in every situation. You also need someone who can help you work through the financial discovery of any marital assets.

DuPage County divorce attorneysCouples who are in or nearing retirement are at serious risk for financial troubles if they decide to divorce. This is because, unlike younger folks, they do not have the time to earn back the money they may lose in the process. As such, it is critical that older couples plan carefully before deciding to file. The following covers some potential strategies, and explains how they can effectively mitigate the risk of costly mistakes often made during a gray divorce.

Take an Honest Look at Your Debts and Income

Because the potential for added income is limited as you near or enter retirement, it is crucial that you take an honest look at your income and debts before deciding to file. Not only does this help you understand what sort of situation you are up against, it can assist you in creating a viable strategy, moving forward. For example, if you find that your combined income and debts simply cannot be split without making sacrifices, you can decide, jointly, to sell the home, pay off your debts, and then divide whatever proceeds are left.

Illinois child support lawyersWhile some married parents choose to divorce, others decide to separate. For some, this is a transition into divorce. For others, it is a chance to determine if divorce is truly the right path. Whatever the case or reason, parents who legally separate have the right to pursue child support. Learn more about this process, and how an experienced family law attorney can assist you, with help from the following information.

How Legal Separation Differs from Divorce

Unlike divorce, which is a complete severance of the marriage, legal separation does not legally end the marriage. Instead, it is a process through which couples develop a formal arrangement while living apart. Married couples do not need this arrangement to live apart, but many choose to pursue this legal documentation anyway. It gives the disadvantaged party the right to pursue financial assistance, including a request for child support and/or alimony (whenever appropriate). It also offers additional benefits above and beyond financial matters.

DuPage County divorce lawyersBaby boomers - or those that are nearing retirement age - are setting a major trend in the divorce arena. Amidst declining divorce rates for most age groups, late-life divorce rates have doubled over the last two decades. Most feel confident about their decision, and many separate on surprisingly good terms. Yet there are still risks associated with these late-term divorces. One of the biggest is the potential for a financial disaster for one or both parties. If you are planning on filing for divorce, the following information can help you understand how to reduce this risk.

Divorce is More Complex Than Most Realize

While most couples have gone through at least one major financial transaction in their lifetime, moving to another state or purchasing a new home pales in comparison to divorce because. Divorce touches every aspect of your life. It can impact your credit and ability to obtain financing. Your car insurance policy, health insurance policy, and renters/homeowners insurance must be changed. Bank accounts, retirement accounts, and other financial accounts are impacted as well. Depending on whether you plan to go through a name change, you may even be changing your driver’s license, social security card, and other legal documents. Indeed, divorce is likely the most complex financial transaction in existence.
