You can see your kids even when they aren't with you -- virtually

When you got married, you may not have thought it would ever end. As the years went by, you had children and realized that the two of you grew apart. Perhaps you fell out of love and want to make sure that you retain the friendship the two of you still enjoy.

Divorce: Use the time in legal separation wisely

Deciding to end a marriage might be the hardest thing some spouses in Illinois will ever do. Some divorces take months or even years to finalize, and getting a court-ordered legal separation is the best way to deal with all the issues. Although such an order does not end the marriage, it stops the accumulation of marital assets. Anything obtained by a spouse after such an order is issued will be personal assets.

Prenups involve much more than property division issues

Many misconceptions and myths exist when it comes to prenuptial agreements. Although these contracts are usually signed to prevent contention and disputes about property division in the event of divorce, they can serve numerous other purposes. Anyone in Illinois who is planning to get married might benefit from making a prenup a priority before walking down the aisle.

Child custody: Handling visitation issues for the holidays

Heading into the holiday season might have many divorced parents in Illinois planning visitation schedules. While most parents want what is best for their children, regardless of which one has child custody, this could be a challenging process. Advisers say there are some old and established mindsets that be best replaced with new ones to benefit building more effective co-parenting relationships.

How to deal with the challenges of high-asset property division

Regardless of how amicably Illinois couples manage to end their marriages, it will nearly always be a painful and challenging process. Property division might be one of the aspects that is most challenging. It might be even more difficult if you are facing a high-asset divorce. Making crucial decisions without adequate information could be detrimental, but help is available.

Is the other parent sabotaging your relationship with the kids?

The news media would encourage you and the other parent to get along for the sake of the kids in the event of a divorce. Stories regarding celebrities and other couples who can live together, vacation together and otherwise have a friendly relationship with the other parent fill the internet.
