Divorce can creep up on a marriage – or be thrust upon a marriage swiftly – but regardless of how it happens, divorce is a serious transition that requires careful attention. Unfortunately, the stress and upset that accompanies every divorce can make it difficult to stay focused on the concerns that matter most – you and your children’s best interests. Working closely with one of the best Chicago divorce lawyers, however, will help ensure you obtain divorce terms that work for you.
One of the most financially significant components of your divorce is the division of your marital property, and all of the following factors apply:
The just, fair and equitable division of marital property can become very complicated very quickly, and protecting your financial rights throughout is essential.
In addition to the financial elements of your divorce, you’ll need to face the issue of child custody arrangements, which is a primary concern of every divorce involving children. While the term “custody” is no longer used in Illinois, the new terminology is entry of an allocation judgment that addresses parenting time and decision-making. How much time each party has with the minor children is designated by his or her parenting time and is determined by many factors if not by agreement of the parties. Decision-making has four major components: religion, education, extra-curricular, and medical and can be made by one party or both parties.
