Property division and mortgaged property

The mortgage is often a primary concern when it comes to divorce. In many instances, when an Illinois couple decides to divorce, the decision of what happens to the family home is a primary consideration in the property division process. As a part of this discussion and decision, details surrounding the current mortgage and how it should be handled are a vital concern.

Taking care of the children is the responsibility of both parents. In many cases where the parents are not together, one Illinois parent has physical custody of the children and the noncustodial parent is responsible for taking care of the children in part by payment of child support. The majority of the time, this arrangement works; however, there are instances where the parent responsible for child support payments fails to comply.

Considerations for negotiating a parenting plan out of court

As a parent, there is nothing more important than protecting the well-being of your children during a divorce. You know that kids benefit when they are allowed to have a close relationship with both parents after the divorce is final, and one of the ways that Illinois couples may be able to provide this for their kids is through a negotiated custody plan. 

High asset divorce and business interests

The typical Illinois business owner often spends considerable time and effort establishing and maintaining his or her business. In some cases, the individual is the only family member involved; in other cases, the spouse and even the children become involved in the business.
