Are you the victim of a parental alienation scheme?

Getting divorced is stressful, especially if you and your former spouse do not see eye to eye on important issues you must resolve in order to achieve a fair settlement. For instance, if you each interpret what is best for your children differently, it can cause a delay in proceedings and may even necessitate litigation to resolve the issue. There are plenty of resources available in Illinois to help you negotiate a satisfactory co-parenting agreement. It's unfortunate when a parent drags the kids into a custody fight.

A child's mental health could affect child custody proceedings

Addressing one's mental health is becoming a priority for more and more people in Illinois and around the world. In the past, mental health issues were misunderstood or often ignored, and today, more people of all ages are getting the help they need to address those issues. However, mental health concerns can be a sticking point during child custody proceedings.

The size, location of a parent's home could affect child custody

Getting divorced is a difficult process, especially when there are children involved. Illinois parents want to do what is best for their kids, and they certainly want to reach the best child custody arrangements possible. However, if a parent is seeking sole custody or even joint custody, it is important to understand how that parent's living arrangements could affect the court's decision.

Protecting assets in a high asset divorce

Ending a marriage in which numerous assets are involved can be more complicated than the average divorce. Though high asset divorce can take more time and effort to complete, it does not have to seem impossible. Of course, most Illinois residents facing this type of case are likely worried about what will happen to their assets.

Mediation allows flexibility during property division in Illinois

Many people in Illinois have the misconception that divorce is always bitter and filled with contentious court battles. They may worry that they will have little control in the property division process if a judge -- who knows little about them personally -- makes the decisions. Fortunately, there are methods of alternative dispute resolution that will allow them more flexibility in the decisions made as they seek to separate their lives.

Child custody: Visitation in Illinois

When a couple chooses to end their marriage, they are often left with a variety of issues to sort through. If there are children involved, one of the biggest issues they face is determining child custody and visitation. Unfortunately, many people in Illinois may not fully understand the options available to them.
