Family Law

DuPage County divorce lawyersAlthough there are exceptions, most married couples fall under the same insurance plan. What happens, though, if the couple then goes through a divorce? Is each party then responsible for their own insurance, or is there a way to continue coverage on a spouse’s plan? Are there other alternatives for disadvantaged spouses who may not otherwise have insurance? The following offers some advice on how to manage your insurance plans after divorce, including when and how to find new insurance if you will no longer be covered after divorce.

Health Insurance After Divorce

If you were covered under your spouse’s insurance plan during the marriage, you can attempt to maintain coverage under your spouse’s workplace plan through COBRA. Unfortunately, this is rarely a cost effective method for maintaining insurance; you may be better off paying for private health insurance. Alternatively, you can seek insurance through your own employer, the health insurance plan marketplace, or you can apply for Medicare or Medicaid (depending on your age). Note that your children may still be covered under your spouse’s plan, but you may be required to help cover a portion of it.

Illinois divorce lawyersDivorce is one of the more traumatizing events that a child can go through, but it does not have to be all bad. In fact, studies have shown that it is often the contention and stress of divorce that causes problems for kids, not necessarily the divorce itself. What does that mean, though, when it comes to your child?

It means that you, the parent, may be able to mitigate against the potentially damaging effects of divorce. All you need is a little know-how, a lot of support, and a willingness to keep your child’s needs front and center throughout the divorce process. The following information provides details on the first element, and it explains where you can find assistance with the rest.

DuPage County divorce lawyersHollywood often portrays divorce as simple and clear-cut, but real-life divorce is rarely straightforward. The reasons, though irrelevant in the courtroom, are often complex and multi-faceted, and couples often experience intense emotions. Also, contrary to the myth, some couples divorce but still love one another. How do you navigate such a painful process when you still have feelings for your spouse? The following explains, and it provides you with some valuable information on the Illinois divorce process.

Love and Divorce

Loving a spouse does not mean divorce is off the table. In fact, many marriages end, despite a shared love between the parties. Some begin to recognize that the relationship is toxic. Others may feel as though they are being held back by their spouse’s lack of ambition or adventure. Some have started to realize they would be happier on their own.

DuPage County divorce lawyersDivorce after the age of 50 is a growing trend – so much so that it has been named the “gray divorce.” In many ways, this is a positive thing. It means that people are living longer and can focus on their happiness and self-fulfillment. It also suggests that women are better able to support themselves, even during their retirement years. Unfortunately, there are some potential drawbacks to divorcing later in life. One of the biggest is the risk of financial loss. In some cases, the loss may be so severe that it results in divorce-induced poverty. Learn how to mitigate against this risk, as well as many others, with help from the following information.

Protecting Your Financial Well-Being

Most couples nearing retirement had originally planned to raise their children together and then enjoy their retirement years together. When retirement approaches and couples realize that they would be better on their own, they often find they are unprepared for the financial implications of divorce. Their retirement funds, which was meant to support just one lifestyle, must now cover two sets of expenses. Financial loss after divorce can impact more than just the ability to cover month-to-month expenses. It could also mean losing health insurance, which may be critical to preserving an individual’s long-term health.

Illinois child support attorneysAfter a slew of changes to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) in 2016, families had to adjust to the new divorce laws. Now there are some new changes on the horizon – this time to the way child support is calculated in the state of Illinois. What will this mean for your case, and how can you effectively prepare? The following information explains further.

Old Child Support Calculations

Under the old child support calculation model, supporting parents paid a percentage of their net income to the receiving parent. That percentage was based on the number of shared children. For example, the paying parent would be obligated to pay 20 percent of their net income for one child, 28 percent of their net income for two children, 32 percent for three children, 45 percent for four children, and 50 percent for five or more children. Other factors, such as special needs, extra expenses, and healthcare costs might be added into the equation, but the formula was generally adhered to by the courts, except, perhaps, in high net worth divorces.
