Making the best of co-parenting with a toxic ex-spouse

Many Illinois couples who have gone through a divorce are now co-parenting. Some people are dealing with an ex-spouse who is a narcissist or a toxic person. In order to successfully co-parent with a difficult ex-spouse, a person will have to put their children first and maintain their own personal integrity.

How a divorce financial specialist may be helpful

There may be advantages for some people in Illinois in engaging a divorce financial specialist during the divorce process along with other legal and financial professionals. Divorce can have a significant effect on a person's finances over the long term, and people may not always understand the ramifications of the financial settlement they are agreeing to. This can be particularly true for people who have not been very involved in the family finances.

Homes aren't always worth keeping in a divorce

Illinois couples who decide to end their marriages may have many questions to answer as they settle their divorces. One of those questions may be what to do with the house that they shared while they were together. Usually, divorcing couples will choose to either sell the home immediately or share it until it can be sold at a later date. Often, a home sale is delayed because it's in the best interest of a child.

The unique issues in a divorce after 50

The issues that you will face in your divorce will largely depend on the life stage you are in. Those with dependent children are often most concerned with child custody agreements. However, those who do not have children and those with adult children are more concerned with asset division, especially if they are approaching retirement.

Qualifying for alimony

When couples in Illinois get divorced, there are a lot of issues that need to be negotiated and resolved. One such point in question is alimony, also known as spousal support. Alimony is money paid by one spouse to the other on an ongoing basis after a marriage ends.
