Divorce and taxes

It’s that time of year again in Illinois when the breeze carries the sweet scent of spring and everyone begins looking forward to warmer days to come. It’s also that time of year when taxes are on most people’s minds, no matter if they filed on time or not. For all of those that are considering divorce or are in the midst of dissolving their marriage, it’s important to understand how this type of life change affects people during tax season.

Making child custody decisions that account for special needs

For families with children with special needs, parents can be especially worried about the emotional and physical effects divorce may have on their kids. Fortunately, there are more social and legal resources than ever before for Illinois families in these situations. In honor of Autism Awareness Month, here are a few useful tips to help parents make important child custody decisions and have peace of mind at the same time.

For fair child custody ruling, representation is crucial

Every family law case is different and depends on a number of unique factors. That is why family law courts throughout the state of Illinois and beyond handle cases on an individual basis. In fact, family law judges often take a great deal of time and care to consider the unique merits of divorce and child custody disputes to ensure that their decisions are appropriate and fair. Unfortunately, however, there are instances where the results of the case depend less on the details and more the fact that one party was not privileged to legal counsel.

Illinois considers changes to child custody law

For Belleville, Illinois, families that have dealt with family law issues personally, many may agree that some state guidelines do not adequately address all situations. In fact, state legislators have been addressing outdated and/or irrelevant policies for some time. In an effort to make the Illinois family law system more efficient and responsive to the needs of both parents in a divorce, the state is now considering a bill that would alter child custody and visitation procedures.
