Illinois parenting plan lawyersWhen parents file for divorce, they are required to complete a parenting plan that outlines their wishes on parenting time and the allocation of parental responsibilities. Of course, since every family is unique, each parenting plan is (and should be) different. However, these variances in needs, desires, and circumstances can make what sounds like a straightforward process rather complicated. Learn how to make the most of your parenting plan by adopting some creative parenting plan solutions that may address your family’s unique needs.

Consider Your Child’s Age

Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes that parents make when designing their parenting plan is not taking their child’s age, activities, or personality into account – yet these factors can greatly influence their specific needs. For example, it might make sense for an infant who has spent most of their life with a stay-at-home parent to have more parenting time with that individual. However, child mental health professionals typically recommend more frequent transitions for extremely young children, as they need a great deal of time with both parents to ensure proper bonding. Depending on your situation, a two day stay with one parent, a two day stay with the other parent, and three days back with the first may be appropriate until the child is a bit older. At that point, the family may want to consider going to a 2-2-5 parenting arrangement.

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.

Wheaton divorce attorneysChildren can be especially prone to emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues during a divorce. Worse yet, there are studies that show divorce can have a lifelong impact on the overall well-being of a child – but that does not necessarily mean you should stay together. In fact, experts now believe that the ill effects that children suffer in divorce are more closely linked to the contention and stress that often accompany divorce, rather than the divorce itself.

What all this means is that parents can mitigate the damage that divorce can do to a child – especially if they know how to recognize the signs of extreme stress. Learn more, and discover what an experienced divorce lawyer can do to improve the outcome of divorce for your family.

Illinios bankruptcy lawyerThe decision to declare bankruptcy is not easy. Admittedly, the cessation of bill collection attempts looks more appealing each time the phone rings, however, filing for bankruptcy has considerable secondary repercussions. Qualification standards and long-term effects may influence your decision when determining if Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the best solution for your situation.

What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is often referred to as “liquidation bankruptcy”. It is a relatively quick process, typically completed between four and six months. Brevity appeals to a significant portion of the population, as does the discharge of unsecured debts. Discharge means credit cards, personal loans, and other unsecured debts become permanently unenforceable, never needing repayment. The downside is that you will need to sell many of your non-exempt assets; hence, the name, liquidation bankruptcy.
