Going through a divorce can be one of the most significant events in your life. Not only will divorce unquestionably affect a major relationship in your life, but it also has the potential to have an impact on your financial situation, where you live, and even your ability to parent your children. These and other family law issues that are implicated by ending a marriage are so serious that it is highly advisable for anyone going through a divorce to retain experienced legal counsel to ensure that their rights are fully protected.

Protecting Your Rights During Divorce

Ending a marriage is a complicated process, particularly if a couple had children or has accumulated significant assets while married. Some of the issues that need to be resolved in many divorces include:

Allocation of Parental Responsibilities - Also known as child custody, this refers to the ability to spend time with your child and your right to make important decisions about the way in which your child is raised. In many divorces, child custody is the most contentious issue that must be resolved.

Child Support - Child support payments are made from one parent to another parent to help with the costs associated with raising the child. In many cases, the non-custodial parent pays the custodial parent, but there are other arrangements that may also be implemented.

Division of Assets and Debts - Under Illinois law, the marital property owned by a divorcing couple will be divided equitably. Some of the factors that courts consider when determining how the marital property will be split include the duration of the marriage, any agreements that exist between the parties, parenting time arrangements, and opportunities for future income.

Spousal Maintenance - Spousal maintenance, often referred to as alimony, involves a payment or ongoing payments made from one party to the other party in order to help with living expenses.
