Child custody and visitation can be made easier

Most Illinois parents who divorce recognize the anxiety the changes can cause for children. For that reason, careful consideration is typically given when making decisions about child custody and visitation. Although shared parenting might be regarded as the best option, it might not be possible if one of the parents relocate to a different area.

Finances in Stephenson multimillion dollar divorce finalized

Multimillionaire Richard Stephenson married Alicia 26 years ago, and 16 years later they decided to separate. Two more years elapsed before Alicia Stephenson filed for divorce. For the past eight years, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America founder and his former wife battled to reach an out-of-court settlement, but all their efforts failed. In the end, it was up to the court and an Illinois judge to decide how to divide the millions.

Flexible child custody and visitation plans can benefit all

When Illinois couples divorce, resolving all material issues can be challenging. Property division often brings about contention, but is usually over and done with once decisions are made. Conversely, child-related issues never actually get completely resolved because parenting goes on. Even couples who share child custody and visitation equally will likely find that parenting issues will arise as the children's needs change over the years.

Divorce and the role financial secrets play

Money can be the source of happiness, but some Illinois couples might have experienced the opposite. It is often said that many a divorce has followed financial arguments between spouses. While those who are knowledgeable recommend honesty and disclosure about finances throughout a marriage, a recent nationwide survey revealed money secrets that are kept by many people.
