DuPage County divorce lawyersIf you anticipate that your divorce will be both complicated and contentious — perhaps due to parenting style differences, children with special needs, or substantial income and assets to be divided — consider which of these two options sounds better:

You and your spouse each choose an aggressive lawyer who will fight out your issues in one-to-one negotiation or in court, if necessary. Consider which of you has more money to spend and is more likely to drag out the legal process out of spite.

You and your spouse agree to resolve your divorce without going to court, working cooperatively with a team of professionals who will provide a neutral perspective and recommendations on both financial and parenting issues with a focus on the best interests of your family as a whole.

DuPage County divorce lawyersMarriages may sometimes end in divorce, and when they do, there are many adjustments to make for life after marriage. These adjustments often include your children and determining how to handle their lives after the marriage has ended, but before that process can start, you first need to tell them that you and their other parent are divorcing.

Letting your children know about an upcoming divorce is most likely going to be difficult. Children will have different reactions and many questions, so you need to be prepared when you tell them what is about to happen.

Tell Everyone Together First

If you have multiple children, you may want to tell each child individually to avoid a scene, or because you do not want to make it seem important. However, it is important, and studies have shown that it is a better idea to tell all the children at once. They will all be able to hear your answers and start to process the news with their siblings. If you feel one of your children will have too strong of a reaction, it may be beneficial to tell them individually. You can always follow up with the children individually, after you have told them together, to see how they are handling the news.

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 family law attorneyWhen couples start to think about divorce, they often fear that it will be this horrible, contentious battle. They worry that both they and their spouse will be emotionally, financially, or mentally devastated (if not all of the above) by the end of it all. True, divorce is an emotionally difficult process with a lot of legal and financial complexities, but there are many couples who are able to divorce amicably. In fact, there are even some spouses who walk away as friends. If you know that divorce is the path that is right for your marriage, but you would like to do so without tearing one another apart, the following information may help.

Why an Amicable Split?

There are many reasons that a couple may wish to part ways in a peaceful manner. Some may simply want to preserve the happy memories of their marriage, or they may be dead-set on not hurting the spouse that they still very much care about but no longer wish to be married to. Others may wish to split amicably because they do not want their children to be caught in the middle of a war zone. They want future family get-togethers and an environment where their children feel safe and loved, despite the ending of the marriage. Whatever your reason, the key to moving forward peaceably is to keep it in the forefront of your mind whenever things get stressful. Because they undoubtedly will.

DuPage County divorce lawyersAccording to the most recent statistics, around one-third of all marriages end in divorce. That means, for every 12 couples that marry, about four will eventually call it quits. Often, this process is one full of contention, but it also comes with the risk of future financial problems. Those at the highest risk are those marriages in which at least one party is not fully aware of (or does not participate in) the financial aspects of the marriage. That leads to the question of whether or not all couples should plan for divorce, long before they ever consider filing.

Arguments Over Money and Your Risk of Divorce

While the amount of money a couple has is often irrelevant to whether or not a marriage will eventually end, those show argue over it – how to spend it, invest it, or save it – have a much higher risk of divorce than those who do not. As a result, experts have encouraged couples to talk about money early on in their relationship, long before the marriage ever starts. No matter how you decide to handle it, one thing is clear: staying open and honest about money during your marriage may very well be your saving grace. Even if your marriage does end in divorce, the process itself is often easier because both parties know what is owned and what is not, and there are fewer issues to argue over in the divorce process.
