Divorce is stressful for all parties, including children. Whether it has come quickly or is a result of long-standing problems, you don’t want the process to drag on, prolonging the uncertainty.
Allocation of Parental Responsibilities
Questions about child custody and visitation may arise in situations such as divorce, dissolution of marriage, and establishing paternity or parentage.
Child visitation rights are some of the most contentious aspects of a divorce or parentage action. The care of minor children is always of primary importance to parents, and this portion of the divorce usually takes longer to decide than the division of marital assets.
Property division can be one of the most hostile aspects of going through a divorce. Illinois is an “equitable distribution” state in which the court must impartially divide the property accumulated during the marriage.
Child support determinations made at the time of divorce or during a paternity case can affect both parents and children. It is applicable until the child’s emancipation at the age of 18 or graduation from high school.
Spousal support, alimony, or spousal maintenance is the continued payment made from one spouse to another to maintain a certain standard of living after a divorce. In addition to child custody issues or division of property, it is one of the most contentious issues that parties may face.
Family law often involves very personal matters. It includes legal concerns relating to paternity testing, child custody, and visitation rights for fathers, which are often emotional and contentious.
Domestic violence charges can have a serious impact on legal determinations in family law cases. It may prevent you from custody or visitation rights.
