What do my kids needs in a post-divorce holiday?

If you have gotten divorced this year and are looking ahead at the upcoming holidays wondering how you will make it through, you are not alone. Countless other Illinois residents are either in your situation or have been there before. If you have children, your challenges at this holiday time can be even greater as you need to figure out how to help them navigate what will certainly be a very different type of holiday season than they are used to.

What should a woman consider before filing for divorce?

Have you and your husband been discussing the possibility of getting divorced in Illinois? Have you on your own thought about ending your marriage? Maybe your husband has sprung a divorce on you. No matter the situation, you are about to embark upon a very emotionally challenging experience. Before you get too far in, it is important to understand a few key things.

Keeping your home after a divorce

If you are an Illinois resident who is facing an impending divorce or perhaps even in the midst of a divorce, one of the biggest questions you may be struggling with is whether or not you should keep your home. You may also be needing to determine whether or not you actually can keep your house.

Keeping your home after a divorce

If you and your spouse are getting divorced in Illinois, one of the many decisions you may have to make is what to do with your marital home if you own one together. In addition to the common emotional tug to keep a family home, especially if you have children still at home, there are many important financial factors that you should consider before making a final decision about your house in your divorce.

Financial considerations during a divorce

When embarking upon a divorce or even when initially contemplating the end of a marriage, Illinois spouses should work hard to put emotions aside and focus on some concrete financial realities. Not doing this can end up costing them in the long run so taking the time at the front end of the process can be worth a lot.
