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.

Ensure Valuation is Accurate

One of the most crucial steps you can take in divorce is ensuring that your business is accurately and comprehensively valued by an experienced professional. Do not leave the matter up to chance. Do not leave it in the hands of your spouse. Instead, contact an experienced divorce lawyer – preferably one that has experience working with forensic accountants.

DuPage County family law attorneysWhile most wedding trends include things like hairstyles, locations, and colors, a new and different sort of trend has entered the scene recently. It is known as the prenuptial agreement. Of course, they have always offered potential benefits to marrying couples; they just have not ever been all that popular. Instead, they were considered one of the least romantic ways to tie the knot. Now they are the norm. What has changed? The following explains.

Difficult to Value Property

Traditionally, prenuptial agreements covered straightforward assets – or assets that are easy to value: homes, cars, incomes, collections, and family heirlooms. More recently though, they have been extended to include concepts and ideas, such as copyrights, trademarks, and software applications. These types of assets are known as intellectual property, and they can be difficult to value in divorce. Using a prenuptial agreement prior to the marriage can clarify who owns the intellectual property, and it can set parameters on what the joint or non-owning spouse may be entitled to there are ever any proceeds from the asset. At the very least, it can keep a non-owning spouse from selling an idea that does not belong to them during the divorce process.

Illinois family law attorneysBlended families come in all shapes and sizes. Each one is unique, but they all have one thing in common: shared children. It is the best interests of these children that should take precedence in all that the families say and do. One family is setting the example by showing up to soccer games in customized, blended family jerseys. How are they making it work, and how can you adapt their style to fit your family? The following explains.

Remember to Be Mindful of the Child’s Comfort Level

Although a new relationship may be the last thing on the mind of some divorcing couples, others have been working on their transition for years. As such, they may already be romantically involved with someone else. Unfortunately, children can find these new relationships jarring, painful, or even traumatizing. The effect is heightened if they have not yet had the chance to adjust to the divorce. So, regardless of where parents are at in their new relationships, it is crucial that they stay mindful of their child’s comfort level.
