DuPage County adoption attorneyAdopting a child can be a lengthy process, and for good reason. It is necessary for the proper due diligence to be taken by all parties to make sure the adoption is the right fit. It is helpful to do all the research you can before adopting a baby so you can be adequately prepared. 

Fun Ways to Prepare

  • Get the baby’s bedroom ready - While you are waiting for the adoption process to be finalized, you can prepare the baby’s bedroom for them to arrive. Decorating the room with wallpaper, painting a mural, or buying toys, a crib, a changing table, a swing, and any other things necessary for your baby may take some time, so be sure to give yourself enough preparation time for your new arrival. 
  • Exercise or take up a hobby - If you feel stressed or anxious while waiting for your baby, you can take your mind off things by exercising or starting a hobby you have always wanted to try.
  • Treat yourself and your spouse - Even though you are ready to have a child, you still need to remember your relationship and your own wellness. Once you have a child, more of your time will be devoted to them. Making the effort before you adopt the baby to spend time with your spouse and do things you both want to do will be beneficial to both of you. 

Practical Steps 

  • Find a pediatrician - Make sure you know where your chosen pediatrician is located. Do some research, get recommendations from friends and family, or ask at the adoption agency to find the doctor who will be the best fit for you. 
  • Research daycare facilities - If you are looking to return to work after adoption, make sure you have an idea of the options for daycare in the area. It is never too early to start looking for a daycare that you like, because some daycares have waiting lists. 
  • Attend a new parent and/or CPR class - It does not hurt to get as much information as possible about being a parent beforehand, so it may be beneficial to attend a new parent class. In addition, learning about CPR and basic first aid may prevent a disaster from occurring.

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.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Illinois-divorce-lawyers_20190204-082413_1.jpgWhen a marriage ends, it can cause a significant amount of stress on both parties involved. The decision to ask for a divorce, the actual process of the divorce, and adjusting to your new life after the divorce can cause varying levels of stress. Stress can take over a person’s life if steps are not taken to mitigate it.

What Is Divorce Stress?

Most people have an idea of what stress is, but in order to help combat your stress, it is helpful to learn more about it as it relates to your divorce. Divorce stress usually involves two different types of stressors. There are the ones most people think about and know they will have to deal with in some form: who is going to move, losing what you are familiar with, paying bills, your children’s reaction, and starting over.

Then there are the stressors which are caused by what is unknown in your life because of the divorce: what kind of settlement you will have, the division of assets and debts, finding a job after the divorce, dealing with less money, being afraid of family reactions, etc. The combination of all these factors can cause a large amount of stress in somebody who is going through a divorce.

Lombard divorce attorneysRomantic relationships can be amazing experiences filled with love and affection. They can also be filled with fights and abuse, whether that be physical or emotional. Physical abuse is often more easily seen, with bruises, scrapes, or broken bones. Emotional abuse is harder to view at a glance, so it may take some self-reflection to realize you are in an emotionally abusive relationship. Once you do, it is important that you take steps that protect your emotional wellbeing and mental health, such as leaving the relationship and getting a divorce. If you notice the following behaviors in your relationship, it may be an indication that your relationship is abusive.

They Rush You

In this context, “rushing” is used to mean the other person will try to push past the boundaries that you have set. They may try to move the relationship along faster than you wish and do not show any respect for your comfort. This type of behavior shows that they have a lack of respect for your boundaries and do not think you should be comfortable in the relationship.

Pettiness

If your significant other acts overly petty with great frequency, it can be a warning sign that they are inclined to emotionally abusive behavior. Pettiness can manifest itself by focusing far too much on something that does not merit as much attention as they are giving it and making you feel like you can not do anything right in your life. Repeated criticism and diminishing statements when you make the smallest mistakes is not a good sign.

Illinois divorce attorneysIf your marriage was unable to continue and you went through the divorce process, you may not expect to be emotionally affected by your ex getting engaged or remarried. However, the marriage being over does not necessarily mean that you feel nothing for your ex at all. Whether it is nostalgia for the good times you had or for another reason, chances are good that many people feel something when they see their ex has permanently moved on with their life. It may be beneficial to you to read through some information such as the tips below to help you cope with your ex’s engagement or remarriage.

Be Wary of Social Media

Seeing social media posts about your ex's new marriage or how happy they are with their new significant other will probably cause some emotion for you. You may need to unfollow your ex on social media in order to keep those feelings out of your life. It is also not good to go to your previous spouse's social media and constantly check it. It is not going to end up helping you at all; it will only hurt you.

Spend Time With Family and Friends

Being with the people you love can take your mind off what is happening in your ex’s life. It can also keep you from ruminating on what could be going on or how the new relationship may have started. Not obsessing over the relationship and being with people who make you happy will give you a confidence boost and help you to remember that there is a reason that your ex is no longer in your life.
