How to seek enforcement of a child support order in Illinois

Dealing with a deadbeat parent that has once again failed to come through in paying his or her child support is frustrating. If your case is currently being handled by the Office of Support Enforcement, then they will be the ideal source for pursuing enforcement of child support. However, if you are not, then going through the court system will be necessary.

What your kids want to know about your divorce

You may think of the end of your divorce as a goal to be reached, and it is in many ways. However, it's not "the end" of the situation when you have kids. You'll still be connected to your ex through your children, and they'll still have a lot of questions about what comes next or where you stand. Some questions they ask may be:

What the Freedom to Marry Act is and what rights it affords you

Signed into law on June 1, 2014, the Illinois Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act affords equal rights to both heterosexual and homosexual couples to not only enter into civil marriages, but to share in the benefits associated with being party to these relationships as well. The law reinforces an individual's rights to freely exercise their religious rights without fear of discrimination, though, as well.

Why so many Illinois children are being cared for by grandparents

Minor children being cared for by their grandparents is not a new concept, although stark increases in this dynamic have occurred during the past 25 years. In fact, a 2010 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, shows that, in the county as a whole, more than 5.7 million minors are being raised in households headed not by their parents, but by their grandparents.

Pressure, duress and prenups

So you are getting divorced, but you and your spouse signed a prenup years ago, when you got married. You think it will solve most of your legal issues right up front, and you're certainly glad you have it in place.
