Illinois divorce attorneyInterfaith marriages are more common today than they were in the past. Unfortunately, interfaith divorces have also become more frequent. While most aspects of divorce are the same regardless of the religions of both spouses, a unique issue in an interfaith divorce is the religion of the children.

Even if one spouse converts to the other spouse’s religion before or during the marriage, they may return to their original religion once they get divorced. When this occurs, the children of the divorce are left with serious religious complications.

illinois divorce attorneyAfter a divorce, you may feel like the joys of your life have been put on hold. One of the most effective ways to add some joy into your life following a divorce is to put time and effort into rebuilding your social life. This way, you will have people to turn to during this difficult time and make happy memories that can help you move past this difficult stage in your life. Here are five tips on how to rebuild your social life after a divorce:

Illinois divorce lawyerA divorce does not have to lead to a courtroom battle filled with emotions. With collaborative divorce, divorcing couples can avoid this and work together to come to an agreement. In recent years, this type of divorce has become more common. In fact, it’s been recognized by the Illinois Collaborative Process Act which will go into effect on January 1st, 2018 and was passed to promote the use of the collaborative process to settle more cases in Illinois. Let’s take a closer look at the meaning of the Collaborative Process Act.

The Collaborative Process Act Defined

A collaborative divorce involves spouses working together with their lawyers to come to a resolution on outstanding issues that need to be settled. The Collaborative Process Act states the following:

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-42.jpgStudent loans are common for anyone with a higher education. Since many people have high amounts of student loan debt that takes them decades to pay off, the issue of student loan debt often arises in the divorce process. If you are going through a divorce, you may be wondering how student loan debt will be divided and whether it will remain with the spouse who incurred it.

The truth is student loan debt is treated just like any other debt in a divorce. Therefore, if the debt was incurred before you got married, it is “separate” and becomes the responsibility of the spouse who borrowed the money. 

However, if the student loan debt was incurred during your marriage, it is known as marital debt like a mortgage, car loan, credit card debt, and personal loan. In the event your student loan debt is marital debt, you and your spouse will likely both have repay it.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-36.jpgOften times, couples cannot reach a complete agreement regarding their divorce but would like to avoid filing for a contested divorce. When this occurs, seeking mediation can help them reach an agreement and lessen the burden of the divorce process. 

Mediation involves a couple working with a neutral third party mediator to discuss and resolve divorce-related issues. If you and your spouse are unable to reach a divorce agreement, you should consider mediation in order to reap the following five benefits.

  1. Greater Privacy. By choosing mediation, you will be able to work out all of your divorce-related issues behind closed doors instead of in an open courtroom. If you would like to make sure your conversations and negotiations are private, seeking mediation is a good idea because anything that is said during mediation cannot be repeated in court. 
  2. Faster Resolution. With mediation, you can focus on reaching an agreement on matters related to parenting time and division of assets at a pace that you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse decide on. You can schedule appointments with the mediator at times that are convenient for both of you rather than having to consider the judge’s calendar. 
  3. Improved Co-Parenting. Since mediation promotes cooperation and compromise, it can help you and your ex-spouse become better co-parents. In addition, mediation will allow for a less stressful divorce and give you both the opportunity to focus on the best interests of your children. 
  4. Lasting Decisions. Research has shown that couples who use divorce mediation to come to an agreement are more willing to honor their decisions than those who have to abide by court-mandated decisions. Working together to create an agreement for the future can also help spouses form a positive relationship that will improve their lives as well as the lives of their children after the divorce.
  5. Money Savings. Divorce can become expensive very quickly. The good news is that mediation can help a couple save money on their own court and attorney fees by expediting the process. If you opt for mediation, you can share the cost of it with your spouse.
