Family Law

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.

IL divorce lawyerLife after you go through a divorce will presumably change in many ways. You may have a new living situation or a new job, and there will be some adjusting to do with your new single life. Divorce is a stressful and emotional process, and at times it may feel that it is hard to move on after divorce. It is crucial to get back to living your life to the fullest as soon as possible after a divorce. If you follow these tips you can help make your life after divorce as fulfilling as you wish.

Do What Is Best for You

Doing what is best for you can mean a variety of things. You should still pay attention to others and not act completely selfishly, but taking this time to do whatever you need to cope will make the time and stress pass faster. Many people are uncertain after divorce and have doubts. Forcing yourself to make decisions about what feels right will help you recover from the divorce by allowing yourself to do those things you may have been afraid to during marriage.

Smile

Some couples have contested divorces and battle it out over everything involved in their case. Even if you are still angry at your spouse for what happened during the divorce, it does not benefit you to let that anger stay within you forever and hold a grudge. Being angry for a period of time is normal and expected, but keeping that anger for too long is not good for you. Letting yourself let go of your animosity and be happy again will help you move on and get back to enjoying your life.

IL divorce lawyerIf you are currently married but are not happy and wish to end the relationship, there are a few different options. Two of the most common options are legal separation and divorce. Divorce is well-known and very common, ending in the dissolution of the marriage. It also allows a couple to separate and divide up property and assets. Child custody and maintenance may also be worked out in a divorce.

Legal separation is not as well-known. If a couple legally separates, they do not dissolve the marriage, but instead will have a separation agreement. Many of the same issues are addressed, such as child visitation, custody, alimony, or maintenance. However, it does not divide up properties and assets unless both people agree to it ahead of time. Neither spouse is allowed to remarry because the marriage has never been formally dissolved. There are differences in how finances are handled in each option so it is important to evaluate all your options before making a firm decision.

What Is Better About Legal Separation?

Not all marriages will benefit more from legal separation. However, if you wish to take advantage of any of the benefits below, it may be beneficial to legally separate instead of divorce:

IL divorce lawyerGoing through a divorce can be a complicated process. Working out maintenance and child visitation, how to divide a business, debt, etc. can all add to the stress of your divorce. If a couple’s finances are particularly complex, it may require a forensic accountant. A forensic accountant for a divorce is someone who details all the debts, assets, and other financial aspects in the divorce and presents that information in a courtroom. Divorce attorneys can help with general financial aspects of a divorce, but for more complex matters it may be necessary to work with a forensic accountant to ensure the finances are taken care of properly.

How Can Forensic Accounting Help Me?

Forensic accountants are most often used in high net worth divorce cases but can be used by anybody if they are needed. Some of the ways a forensic accountant can help your divorce case by searching to see if there are hidden assets, evaluating the long-term impact of the divorce on finances, or determining the value of assets and evaluating expenses. To do so they will examine any deeds, stocks, investments, bank statements, etc. and compile everything together.

The forensic accountant can be especially helpful if you believe your spouse is hiding assets. For example, if they bought some cryptocurrency in the past and have not disclosed it to you or the court, that could be very valuable and will need to be considered in the division of assets in your case. If your divorce is amicable, you probably do not need to worry about that issue as much, but it is still beneficial to you to make sure everything is accounted for in your case. Often forensic accountants are used for business valuation. Business finances and personal finances for business owners are often intermingled in complex ways, and the forensic accountant will determine where assets should be placed for divorce considerations.
