The highest concern of parents is the safety and well-being of their children. Family courts in Illinois and other states always focus on these interests during divorce proceedings and child custody hearings. Sadly, some parents call their judgment into question with bad behavior that could affect offspring.
It is always difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one. But a death in the family can be made worse when survivors find there is no guidance for how to preserve and share the assets of a family member's estate.
Divorce can be both an emotionally draining and legally complicated situation for spouses. The process is generally more difficult for couples with large assets to divide and is also more complex when children are involved. Courts in Illinois use certain standards to keep divorce proceedings as short and as fair as possible.
