Wheaton divorce attorneysDuring an Illinois divorce, a couple’s debts and assets are valued, summed, and then equitably divided. Of course, some assets are far easier to split than others. Take, for example, vehicles. Most couples have two – one for each spouse. In divorce, each typically takes their own vehicle.

The family home is far more difficult to divide, for both obvious reasons and not-so-obvious ones. Businesses are also extremely difficult to divide in divorce. Learn more in the following sections, including how an experienced divorce attorney can improve the outcome of your case.

DuPage County divorce lawyersDivorce is a complex and often emotional legal process – one in which the assistance of an attorney is highly recommended. Unfortunately, with all the choices that are now available, consumers often struggle to find the one that is most suitable for their situation. Learn why finding the “right” attorney for your Illinois divorce is so important, and discover some tips that can help with the selection process.

Strive for Balance Between Quality and Cost

Of all the concerns that divorcing parties have, those relating to cost are the most common. Understandable as that might be, parties should be careful to not let cost rule their decision – especially since many “discount lawyers” and “divorce mills” have little regard for the outcome of your case. Instead, do your research and strive to balance quality of the cost. Also, if you are afraid that you cannot afford the attorney of your choosing, discuss your concerns with them. Some may be willing to do payment plans, and in some situations, parties may be entitled to support from their spouse to cover any applicable legal expenses.

Illinois divorce attorneysStalking may not be an issue in all divorces, but it is common in marriages that have an element of abuse or violence. Thanks to technology and digital tools, stalkers also have more ways to track their spouses during and after a divorce. If you are leaving an abusive or dangerous marriage, learn more about the tactics that may be used to track you during your divorce, and discover how an experienced attorney can help protect you from a violent spouse.

GPS Tracking and Your Rights

Whether you are aware of it or not, your phone and the applications on it can track your location. Yet, even without a cell phone (or one in which the GPS function had been disabled), abusive spouses have a workaround. Miniature GPS tracking devices – some no larger than a button battery – can be installed in purses, on vehicles, and even jackets or other clothing items.

DuPage County divorce lawyersParenting changed the moment the first in vitro fertilization baby was born back. One would think that, since then, the law would manage to sort out what happens to a fertilized embryo if the prospective parents should ever divorce. Yet, as many couples learn, this is not the case. In fact, in the last 25 years, little progress has been made regarding the rights of each divorcing individual to either procreate or not procreate – but that could all soon change.

In a case that is set to be heard by the high courts in Colorado, an individual’s Constitutional right to procreate or not, and whether one outweighs the other person’s, will finally be ruled upon. Learn more about how and why this upcoming case is different than the previous IVF divorce cases, discover what the court’s potential decision could mean for your case, and gain insight as to how an experienced divorce lawyer can help improve the outcome of your situation.

Illinois parenting time lawyersAlthough divorce can negatively impact all involved parties, children tend to be the most vulnerable. In fact, studies have shown that children may experience behavioral, mental, and emotional issues during a divorce, and some of those effects can carry on into adulthood. Thankfully, parents can mitigate the potential damage with compassion, empathy, and few tried and true tips for helping children cope. Learn more about them, and discover how an experienced divorce attorney can improve the outcome for you and your child during an Illinois divorce.

Be Empathetic to Your Child’s Position and Feelings

Part of the reason that children struggle so much with divorce is that they are powerless in the situation. They have no choice; they can only cope and eventually accept. To complicate matters even further, children rarely have any advance knowledge that divorce is on the horizon, so the news may leave them feeling like their entire life has fallen apart, and all in a matter of moments. Also, because children may not have a clear understanding of divorce, they may think that they can “fix” the issue, or they may blame themselves. Some also fear that their relationships with one or both parents may suffer, or they may be afraid of the changes. Be empathetic to their position and feelings, and do your best to comfort them when it is needed. Be clear but empathetic about how life will change.
