Divorce proceedings could affect sale of business

Some people in Illinois put a great deal of time and effort into creating a business that will be successful. However, all of that effort could be put into jeopardy should the marriage end in a divorce without certain protections in place for the business. In fact, some claim that the sale of a business in another state, and subsequent court filings in response, are the result of the business owner's divorce proceedings.

Federal court will hear case on Native American child custody law

Some families in Illinois and across the country are willing to open up their homes to children whose parents are not able to care for them. Many of these families are willing to make these children a permanent addition to their families but are sometimes thwarted in their desire to seek child custody if the children are Native American. The Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 works to ensure that such children are adopted by members of their own culture when possible.

To settle high asset divorce, art collection must be sold

The end of a marriage is almost always an emotionally difficult time. While some couples in Illinois are able to put their differences aside and come to an agreement with relatively little contention, other couples will ultimately have to ask a judge to make certain decisions for them. In fact, a judge presiding over a high asset divorce in another state has ordered that a couple's art collection be sold in its entirety.

Hiding assets in divorce is illegal. Is your spouse doing it?

When you told your spouse you were filing a divorce petition in an Illinois court, you may have gotten the exact reaction you expected or one that caught you off-guard. Either way, you may also have explained that you simply wanted to do what was necessary to finalize documents, part ways as amicably as possible and move on in life. Perhaps, you knew that would likely not be the case when your spouse made comments about "leaving you with nothing" or "taking you for everything you have."
