Dealing with a home sale following a divorce or separation

For many Illinois couples who are coping with a volatile marriage, the idea of divorce is often a solution that allows both parties to eventually move forward and put time consuming disagreements in the past. However, separating does not come without its fair share of difficulties. Many couples have to make important decisions about the welfare of their children, how finances will be divided and what should be done with shared property and assets. 

Understanding how courts calculate child support payments

For divorcing couples in Illinois who have had children together, the idea of continuing to raise their children without a martial relationship can be exceptionally stressful and difficult to balance. Often, parents may be required to make child support payments to contribute to the financial necessity of raising their children and all of the costs associated with each child's schooling and extra-curricular activities.

How much of your inheritance you may keep in the divorce

When you received your inheritance, it was a windfall for your family. However, now that you and your spouse are getting an Illinois divorce, you face the fear that your spouse will take half and leave you with little to live on. The legal team at Essig Law Office often helps people understand how property division works, and what assets may be safe from a spouse.

Who is responsible for a mold problem in your new home?

Building a home or purchasing a home for your Illinois family is exciting, but it can be devastating to learn there are potential complications with your new property. This is particularly true if these issues are hazards that could cause complications with your health. One of these issues is the presence of mold in the home.

Will a judge order an unemployed parent to pay child support?

If your spouse is unemployed and you are headed for an Illinois divorce, you may wonder whether you will receive any child support at all. Even when there are no earnings to factor in, your child's other parent will probably still have to contribute to the expenses of raising your child. According to the Illinois statutes, there are a number of sources of income that are used in the calculation of child support.
