What happens to embryos in a divorce?

In the past, couples who were unable to have children were left with few options. However, advances in medical technology, including in vitro fertilization, have opened up doors for those in Illinois and elsewhere who desire children but struggled to conceive. Unfortunately, family courts are often forced to decide what happens to embryos should the relationship end in a divorce when one person wants to have a child and the other does not.

Planning for the future in Illinois with a prenuptial agreement

When a couple chooses to spend the rest of their lives together with the commitment of marriage, they often have several decisions to make. Some couples may have to decide where they will live and how many children they want to have in addition to planning a wedding. However, these plans are not the only ones couples in Illinois and across the country often address; many also use this time to plan for the future by creating a prenuptial agreement that will detail what will happen should the marriage end in divorce.

Battle over alimony reignites due to campaign contributions

There is no doubt that the end of a marriage can often be contentious. While relatively rare, animosity can lead to continued conflict for years after an Illinois divorce. In fact, a woman in another state is now seeking a higher amount of alimony after she claims that her ex-husband apparently experienced a change in circumstances.

Ensuring financial security in the event of a divorce

It will come as no shock to anyone that some marriages in Illinois and across the country will end. Though all couples who choose to marry likely do so with the intent of spending the rest of their lives together, the reality is that some relationships will end in divorce. Unfortunately, some women may be at a financial disadvantage.

Right of first refusal in your parenting orders

Perhaps the most heartbreaking part of divorcing as a parent is that in addition to dividing your property, you must divide your time with your children. As much as the Illinois courts try to seek a fair division of time between two parents, it is not always possible, especially when you have other obligations.
