Illinois family law attorneysEarly studies on children of divorce found that divorce negatively impacted children in all sorts of ways. They struggled in school, found it difficult to adjust, suffered psychological problems long into adulthood, and often experienced issues in their own adult relationships. Divorce has changed a lot since then – it is more common, more socially acceptable, and it is far more likely that both parents will continue to be a part of the child’s life after the divorce. However, more recent studies have found that the effect of divorce on children has changed very little.

Possible Negative Effects of Divorce on Children

There is no shortage of studies on children of divorce. One published in Journal of Youth and Adolescence found that twice as many children from divorced families experienced a condition known as “destructive parentification” – a situation in which the child takes on parental responsibilities, possibly even caring for the parent themselves. The effect was found to be long-lasting, carrying into many of their adult lives. Many went on to experience anxiety or depression of their own and struggled with forming healthy romantic relationships.

Generally, child support is either outlined within an agreed-upon divorce settlement decree between the couple, or it is ordered by the court based upon certain factors such as income and the extent of custodial responsibility between the parents.

Too often, however, some parents may evade their responsibilities to their children and voluntarily choose to not pay the required child support amount. In this situation, Illinois allows for wage garnishment, a process by which the parent’s wages are reduced by a certain amount until his or her dues are paid.

The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act is the law that governs how child custody is determined in Illinois. When we think of the word “custody,” we sometimes view it in terms of the time spent with a child regardless of whether the courts award joint or sole custody. However, custody in Illinois actually has to do with determining which parent has the decision-making power over the child. The length of time a parent spends with the child is not the focus of the determination.

Researchers who study marriage dynamics and the causes of divorce have focused most of their efforts on studying the effects that physical or emotional cheating have on a marriage. However, until recently, very little research had been done to study the effects that “financial infidelity” had on relationships. Financial infidelity occurs when one partner hides what he or she does with his or her money from the other partner. It could take the form of spending money behind the partner’s back, maintaining separate credit cards or secret accounts, stashing away money, or borrowing from others without the partner’s knowledge.

aging parents, Illinois family law attorney, marriage, Mevorah Law Offices LLC, fostering your marriage, marriage trendsTaking care of aging parents can be an incredibly stressful experience. It is not uncommon for it to take a heavy toll on you, your spouse, and even on your marriage. The married couple needs to strike a balance between their needs as a couple and the needs of aging parents.

Avoid the trap of overcaring, as one author puts it. This happens when well-intentioned loving people sacrifice their marriages in which they have invested years because they spent all their time and emotional energy on family caregiving responsibilities.
