Immigration laws can impact divorce arrangements

Even after a marriage has ended, it is not uncommon for issues to arise between exes. Often times, one party may seek to make changes to agreements regarding everything from alimony to parenting time. And while countless people in Illinois and beyond might attest to the fact that some major divorce issues don’t come up until much later, few may be aware of how certain immigration policies can play into divorce disputes. One woman is now seeking alimony from her ex-husband years after their divorce because of terms he agreed to as her fiancé and sponsor.

Felony conviction linked to child custody ruling

When anyone in the state of Illinois or elsewhere faces felony charges, their possible conviction can affect many others. Especially for families with young children, the prospect of a prison sentence can be very concerning since it may disturb child custody arrangements. Fortunately, reasonable accommodations can be made in some instances to allow parents to retain custody of their children while fulfilling the terms of their felony conviction. One recent case illustrates how the genuine interest and efforts of attorneys and judges alike can work in the best interest of the child in these difficult situations.

Rape victims can be targeted again in child custody disputes

Even though Illinois state and federal laws set guidelines that apply to the majority of family law issues to arise in court, such policies fail to address every possible scenario. In fact, many attorneys and victim rights activists acknowledge that the law can do much more to adequately meet the needs of rape victims that are brought into child custody disputes by their rapists. That’s why a group of lawmakers is hoping to address the problem with new legislation.
