Making back-to-school stress-free after divorce

Students across Illinois are either in their early days of school or their final days of summer vacation. You may be like many parents who are eager for school to start so you can get your kids back into a predictable routine. This may also be a year that holds exciting promise, such as a special field trip or beloved teacher. Still, if your family has recently gone through a divorce, you may have feelings of dread about how the school year will go.

Could high asset divorce be contagious among friends and family?

According to researchers from leading universities, spouses are 75 percent more likely to end their marriage if a close friend or family member does the same. That sobering statistic may give some Illinois spouses pause. It turns out that in some ways, high asset divorce might be contagious within familial or social circles. 

Lisa Marie Presley fights to seal child custody records

Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis Presley, has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle for some time now. In a recent development, Presley asked the court to seal all records in her child custody case. Her estranged husband, music manager Michael Lockwood, opposes that move. Illinois readers may be interested to learn that the court has sided with Presley, at least on a temporary basis, and the records will be sealed until a permanent decision is reached. 

Don't let emotion overrule reason in alimony decisions

For some Illinois spouses, a divorce marks the end of a very tumultuous and stressful time. It's easy to focus only on the finish line and make decisions that don't benefit from a long-term point of view. But when considering matters of alimony, rash decisions can have lasting financial ramifications and should be avoided at all costs. 

Considering identity during child custody negotiations

For many Illinois parents, a primary focus during a divorce is how to divide parenting rights and responsibilities. While moving through the child custody process, it's easy to overlook the role that identity will play in each parent's life after the divorce is made final. Failing to address the issue can lead to negative consequences for both parent and child.
