Key Areas In A Divorce Case
All divorce cases are unique, but there are certainly key legal areas that all who are getting divorced should know. These start with property division. Illinois is an equitable division state, not a community property state, so division may not be perfectly equal. It’s crucial to know what assets and debts qualify as separate assets, which ones qualify as marital assets and how the law dictates that these should get divided in a divorce.
Another area to consider is child custody rights. Both parenting time (physical custody) and decision-making power (legal custody) can be divided between co-parents. They do not have to be divided in the same fashion. For example, one parent could have shared legal custody but sole physical custody. Parents are often very concerned about their right to see their children and be involved in their lives, and an experienced legal team can help protect those rights every step of the way.
Finally, each divorce can come with its own specific complications. Some couples need guidance regarding the validity of prenups, the various deadlines and mandatory court appearances, the application of alimony or child support payments, and more.
