Divorce Cases Can Be Complicated

There are several issues you need to resolve before you can be legally divorced. The determinations for these issues can significantly affect your life, so we will always work to make sure that each decision is as fair and favorable as possible. Some common issues in a divorce include as follows:

Property Issues – Many married couples collect a significant amount or property and assets, including a family home, vehicles, furniture, personal property, bank accounts, retirement accounts, and more. The law in Illinois requires that all of this property be divided equitably between the spouses, which can be a complex process. Many factors can influence property division, such as whether one spouse is staying in the family home, whether spousal support is awarded, and more.

Issues involving children – Children can bring great joy into your lives, though children can make a divorce case substantially more complex. You will have to decide the following issues and more:

  • Child support payments from one parent to the other;
  • Where the child will live at what times;
  • Whether parents have the right to make important decisions in the child’s life;
  • Visitation schedule;
  • Whether one parent will remain in the home with the children;
  • How you will share everyday parenting duties.

If you cannot agree with your spouse on these matters, the court will decide for you based on arguments and evidence in court. It is important to have an attorney who can advocate on your behalf to help protect your relationship with your children.

Spousal support – In many marriages, one spouse may be the primary breadwinner while the other sacrifices their professional career to make greater contributions to the household and children. Courts recognize the importance of both roles and also do not want one spouse to be struggling financially after divorce while the other makes a good living. Spousal support awards can help to even the playing field and to support a spouse while they seek education, training, or experience to build a successful career so they can support themselves.

Premarital agreements – Many couples choose to sign a premarital agreement before their wedding that dictates how many issues will be settled in the event of divorce, including spousal support and division of property. There can be disputes over whether the premarital agreement is valid and enforceable, however, and we can argue for or against a premarital agreement if needed.
