The benefits of alternative dispute resolution in divorce

People in Illinois who have chosen to end their marriage likely spend a great deal of time contemplating the matter. However, deciding to divorce is actually only the first of many decisions that will ultimately follow. Even though the process has a reputation of being highly contentious, there are many couples who choose the more peaceful alternative dispute resolution method of mediation.

High asset divorce support is a central focus for Sarah Palin

As many Illinois spouses can attest, marital breakups are rarely easy. Especially in a high asset divorce, spouses often become entangled in issues regarding property division, alimony and other important matters. Building a strong support network from the start is often a key factor to accomplishing one's goals for a settlement. Former presidential candidate and governor Sarah Palin appears to understand the value of hiring a competent and experienced attorney to fight such battles on her behalf.

Man refuses to pay alimony, claims marriage was invalid

The vast majority of people in Illinois believe that they know everything that they need to know about the person with whom they plan to spend the rest of their life. However, in some situations, one person may find out certain information only after they exchange vows, often prompting the decision to seek a divorce. Unfortunately, a man in another state claims that he faces alimony payments even though he believes that the marriage was not valid.

Divorce rate has more than doubled for people age 55 and over

When you think back to the day you got married, you might have mixed emotions. On one hand, it might seem as though that day was centuries ago. On the other, it might feel like only yesterday and leave you wondering where time has gone. Either way, if your marriage failed to unfold the way you'd hoped, you might be one of many Illinois spouses who analyze their situations and wish they'd done some things differently.

Illinois couples can take control of property division in divorce

No one in Illinois expects to be involved in a car accident, but they plan for that possibility anyway by purchasing car insurance. Likewise, no one has an expectation that their marriage will end in divorce while they are planning their wedding. However, the reality of life is that some will, and creating a prenuptial agreement is a form of insurance to protect their assets and ease the property division process should they choose to go their separate ways.
