DuPage County divorce lawyersCell phone linking while you are married can make life simpler; you and your spouse can easily share photos, documents, and pertinent personal information (i.e. locations, banking information, etc.). Unfortunately, that same technological feature can be your undoing in an Illinois divorce. Learn how you can protect your personal digital information in the following sections. 

Email Accounts and Linked Cell Phones

Of all the information that your spouse can access from a linked cell phone account, emails are perhaps the most concerning. That is because most people now receive legal advice through email. Bank account alerts may also be sent through email. As such, divorcing parties are encouraged to change the password to their email accounts before they even initiate a divorce. If you are not the initiator, change your passwords as soon as you receive notification of the impending divorce.

Having Unrealistic Lifestyle Expectations 

In an Illinois divorce, the money and other assets acquired during the marriage are equitably split, and the time they have with their children is divided. These losses, when compounded with the grief that is often felt at the end of a marriage, can cause parties to have unrealistic expectations about what they deserve or need from their settlement. For example, a party may be dead set on keeping the family home, even though they cannot reasonably afford it. Alternatively, a parent may insist that they get their children for all holidays and the entire summer, even though they know their spouse wants some of this time as well. Unfortunately, holding on to these unrealistic lifestyle expectations can do them far more harm than good.

Illinois adoption lawyersAlthough adoption is usually a positive experience for families, it can take an emotional toll on the prospective parents. Sadly, few are aware of the challenges that they are likely to face, and so they may not be fully prepared for the process. Learn more in the following sections, including where you can find support during the adoption process. 

Understanding the Challenges of Adoption

Adoption, in and of itself, can be a stressful process. There are many forms to complete, and parents often worry whether they will be considered a “suitable” parent by the adoption agency. In addition, there may be challenges that are specific to the type of adoption that a parent is pursuing. For example, a mother may change her mind in an infant adoption, and the prospective parents may have to start the process over - and that can be painful if they have developed an attachment to the child.

Illinois parenting time lawyersDivorce can negatively impact all involved parties, but children tend to be at the greatest risk for long-term complications and maladjustment. Part of this is due to their lack of control in the situation, but there are also other factors that can influence their ability to cope with divorce (i.e. a history of abuse or neglect, parental alienation, developmental disabilities, etc.). Thankfully, parents can mitigate many of the risks by making intentional efforts to safeguard their child’s best interests during and after the divorce process. Learn more on how to effectively do this while parenting in separate homes, and discover how the assistance of a seasoned divorce attorney can help to improve the final outcome of your case. 

Allowing Your Child to Love Both Parents

Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes that parents make in divorce is they get jealous over the time that their child spends with their former spouse. Alternatively, a parent may be so emotionally distraught that they feel they “need” their child around to be okay with their new way of life. Unfortunately, both scenarios (as well as any others that may hinder your child’s ability to freely love both of their parents) can cause permanent damage to your child’s well-being.
