Five things to remember while going through a divorce

Divorce is usually a very stressful process for any family to endure. Most parties are so eager to pick up the pieces and move on that they fail to do a few important things that could protect privacy and prevent future issues. Here, we remind you about five of those matters.

Basic requirements for starting a divorce in Illinois

Couples in Illinois go through high and lows. The marriages that work are able to work through the lows, but not every couple is able to do that. These couples may know that the marriage is over, but in order to actually end the marriage, they must get divorced. This is what happens after all the issues have been decided and a judge signs the divorce decree, but the divorce process must first be initiated before that can occur.

Pet disputes in Illinois divorces

Spouses might reach an agreement on where the pets will live and who will take care of them moving forward. But what if you and your spouse aren’t able to come to such an agreement? What will Illinois courts consider when it comes to pet disputes in a divorce?
