Family Law

DuPage County family law attorneysFor families still adjusting to life after divorce, the traditional togetherness of the holidays can be stressful and downright depressing. This can be especially true for children, who might still be struggling to understand why the divorce happened in the first place. If you went through a divorce earlier this year, help your child cope with the holiday season using the following tips.

Keep the Focus on Your Children

Despite the change in your marital status, your family is still technically a family. No, this does not mean that you need to invite your ex-spouse over for Thanksgiving dinner. It does mean that you need to remember that your child still loves both of you, and that they do not want to be put in the middle. More than that, children can be emotionally hurt if they are forced to choose sides, so do not make them. Instead, work with your ex-spouse the best that you can. Come up with a plan that everyone can live with, and make sure your child’s wants and needs are at the top of your list of priorities when making those plans. Above all else, avoid any angry words either in front of or around your child.

DuPage County divorce lawyersDivorce among most age groups might be declining, but those nearing the age of retirement are splitting up at a rate more than double what it was just two decades ago. On one hand, the willingness to start over and pursue a path to self-happiness could be considered a testament to the improved financial stability of women. On the other, divorce at this stage in life carries with it some causes for concern. If you are nearing your retirement age and considering divorce, the following information explains what you should know.

Protecting Your Financial Future is Critical

As you near retirement, your ability to make up any income or assets lost during divorce is greatly diminished. This means you will need to do some extra planning to protect your financial future. Take stock of what you have – assets, income, expenses, investments, and retirement accounts – and ask your attorney for help in determining what might be left once the divorce is over. This will tell you if you should make any adjustments to your retirement plan, divorce plan, or financial plan.

DuPage County divorce lawyersNot every couple who separates does so in the same way. Economic situations, family situations, and personal preferences all come into play. For those that maybe cannot financially afford to separate in the traditional way, have children and do not want to be away from them, or want to try and use separation to repair their marriage, an in-house separation might serve better than an out-of-house one. What is this type of separation, exactly, and how can you make it work? The following provides some tips.

What is an In-House Separation?

At its core, in-house separation is pretty much what it sounds like: a couple “separates” while still living in the same home. Some have one living in the bedroom and the other in the attic. Others simply section off a part of the house. The point is that you each have your own space that is separate from one another. Of course, because you are still in the same home, there are many ways for this type of separation to go awry. Further, it can be a little confusing to children, if you have them. As such, it is important to have some strategies for making it work.

DuPage County divorce attorneysWhile it has been said that “money is the root of all evil,” there is really nothing wrong with wanting or needing financial stability. In fact, in this day and age, financial stability is absolutely crucial when it comes to protecting your overall health and wellness. So how do you ensure you get your fair share in high asset divorce? The following explains further.

A Battlefield or a Place of Compromise?

Sadly, the fight over money in divorce can (and sometimes does) turn court into a battlefield. Couples who once loved each other wage war and sometimes even engage in sneaky and underhanded tactics in order to keep their fair share. In these situations, it is critical that you have a legal representative who is willing to protect your rights – preferably one who is also experienced in handling high asset divorces and high conflict litigation proceedings. Yet this is not always a requirement. In fact, if you instinctively pursue the kind of attorney that starts out swinging, you could turn what might have been an amicable divorce into a highly contentious one. As such, it is important that you also seek an attorney who knows how to protect your interests in peaceable negotiations.

DuPage County family law attorneysEach year there are 18,500,000 mental health care visits due to intimate partner violence. However, there are also many domestic violence incidents that go unreported. This could be due to a number of reasons, being that the victim becomes afraid of their abuser. As such, it is important to communicate to loved ones if and when an abusive situation occurs.

You Have Options

One way to put an end to domestic violence in Illinois is to seek an order of protection. There are multiple reasons you can use this option:
