IL divorce lawyerIf you and your significant other are entering into the divorce process, it can put a strain on your finances. Divorces can sometimes be a costly process, especially if it is a contested divorce and you and your spouse cannot agree over anything. The court process often leads to people having to take a hard look at their finances to determine how they can pay for everything now that they are alone. The divorce process is difficult on your finances, but it can be less difficult if you follow the tips listed below.

No Impulsive Decisions

Divorce changes people. It can be for the worse, or for the better. For a period of time, many people will feel distraught about their relationship ending and might make impulsive decisions such as buying a boat or motorcycle or moving to a new city without any planning. It is important to wait until you are sure you have processed the divorce before making those types of financial decisions.

Illinois divorce lawyerOn January 1, 2018, a new law regarding pet custody in Illinois made its debut. In the past, pets were divided between the divorced couple like furniture or a vehicle. If a spouse acquired the pet before marriage, it would be awarded to them. In the event the pet was acquired during marriage, the judge would be required to award the pet to one spouse and reimburse the other for half the pet’s value.

Now, however, a judge will be able to take the well-being of the pet into consideration before granting custody. They can consider who spent more time cleaning out a fish tank or walks and feeds the dog on a regular basis and award pet custody based on this information. Let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons of this new law.

Illinois divorce attorneyThe process of divorce can be expensive. In an attempt to save money, some adults decide to handle their divorce on their own. Although there are several resources that can help you file your own divorce, doing so without the guidance of an experienced divorce lawyer can lead to mistakes that can cost you a great deal of time, money, and headaches down the road. By seeking legal representation for your divorce case, you can avoid the following common mistakes that often occur in do-it-yourself divorce cases.

1. Missed Deadlines

Divorce involves filling out a significant amount of forms and attending a number of hearings. Since it can be confusing to determine what needs to be done when, you may miss deadlines that can dismiss your case or even invalidate it. An attorney can help you understand all of the specific deadlines and requirements associated with your divorce and ensure you know exactly what to do and where to be during the process.

car home insurance imageThere was an article in the Chicago Tribune about a recently divorced woman who found out just how much paperwork a divorce can involve. Kirsten Lang, a 32-year-old massage therapist, divorced in March, which meant she had to go through various issues, including changing her insurance plans.

Removing your ex-spouse from a policy or getting a new insurance is important–otherwise you might become over- or underinsured, or not insured at all. According to Lang, her ex-husband attempted to change the conditions of her policy, for example, add costs and include an option to have her removed without notice. Her situation got even more difficult when her ex’s employer changed plans, causing an increase of $140 to her co-payments. Lang eventually managed to terminate her old policy and got her own plan, which her ex-husband could not affect in any way.

Other insurance policies are likely to require changes as well. Life insurances might have only the other spouse as the policy owner which gives that spouse full control over any decisions about it. Needless to say, there are a number of details in a life insurance policy that you probably don’t want your ex messing with. A well planned divorce settlement is crucial in ensuring that your former relationship won’t come back to haunt you. For instance, insurance coverage can be addressed in a divorce settlement. Professional divorce attorneys know what the best course of action is and can offer invaluable help in a difficult situation.
