b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_259913522.jpgThe Illinois General Assembly passed House Bill 2537,  which will alter the way spousal maintenance payments work in Illinois. According to the existing law, which went into effect in 2015, several factors should be used in order to determine whether maintenance is appropriate. 

In the event that maintenance is appropriate, the court will use statutory formulas to figure out how much maintenance will be awarded and the duration of the payments. Let us take a closer look at how the Illinois spousal maintenance law will change when it goes into effect in 2018.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-24.jpgThe way you spend your parenting time when your child is a toddler will be far different than when your child is a teenager. Since parenting time changes with different ages, it is important to understand how to make the best use of your time throughout every stage of your child’s life. Let’s take a closer look at how you can expect to spend your parenting time when your child is a toddler, in elementary school, and teenager.

Toddler

When your child is young, your parenting time may be spent teaching them how to speak and read. You may consider reading, playing educational games, or taking them to activities that allow them to socialize and meet other children. By doing so, you will prepare them for kindergarten.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-3.jpgA guardian has the same responsibilities to a child as a child’s biological parent. An individual may obtain legal guardianship of a child in Illinois because a child’s biological parents cannot properly care for them, a child’s biological parents passed away in a tragic accident, a minor child is living with a disability, or senior adults do not have the ability to care for themselves.

Types of Guardianships

In Illinois, an individual can become a permanent legal guardian, a guardian ad litem, a standby guardian, or a short-term guardian. Let’s take a closer look at how each of these four types of guardianships are defined.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-7.jpgDealing with divorce is hard enough on its own. However, when divorce is paired with the holidays, you may feel anxious, sad, and overwhelmed. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways you can cope with divorce during the holiday season, make the best out of this roadblock in your life, and experience the holiday cheer you deserve:

  • Volunteer. Although you be tempted to stay at home, getting out and volunteering is an effective way to take your mind off your marital status and help those in need. Whether you volunteer at a soup kitchen, animal shelter, or local non-profit organization, you can remind yourself that life is not perfect and everyone has some type of hardship in their life.
  • Focus on Your Children. If you have children, you should make an effort to ensure your divorce does not stop them from having fun and being happy during the holidays. Try to create a holiday social schedule with your ex-partner so that your children receive the opportunity to spend time with both of their parents. In addition, be sure to keep some old holidays traditions and create new ones.
  • Socialize. In order to avoid feelings of loneliness and depression during the holiday season, you should socialize as much as possible. Spend time with your friends and family members, join a club, attend community events, and go to the parties and other holiday events you are invited to. Frequent socialization can help you make new friends and strengthen your current relationships.
  • Eat Healthy and Exercise. It can be easy to disregard your health while coping with divorce during the holidays. By doing so, you can get sick and suffer from health issues that will only make this time more difficult. Therefore, you should make it a priority to eat well-balanced, nutrient-rich meals and visit the gym or exercise at home on a regular basis.
  • Avoid Overspending. If your finances have taken a hit during your divorce, you should be mindful when spending during the holiday season. Credit card debt can add to your stress, making it crucial to create a holiday spending budget and stick to it. If you have children, speak to your ex-partner to create a plan for buying your children gifts.
