You and your spouse have made the difficult decision to part ways and pursue a divorce in Illinois. A consequence of this decision means that you and your children are going to have to relocate and find someplace else to live.

What you need to know about selling your house without a realtor

You have recently decided to list your home for sale and are trying to determine whether or not you should do it independently or with the help of a realtor in Illinois.

How can I cope with a difficult ex during a divorce?

A divorce is rarely ever an easy process. It becomes even more difficult when your ex does not want to cooperate. This can create tension and cause issues in and out of an Illinois courtroom, especially when you are trying to divide marital property. While you cannot do anything to make your ex more reasonable, there are some things you can do to help prevent him or her from causing further issues and to keep your divorce proceedings moving along.

Appropriate recourse for interference with your parenting time

As an Illinois parent, there is nothing more important than preserving your relationship with your children. A divorce can bring certain challenges for you as a parent, but it is possible to pursue a final order that allows for regular parenting time and access in the lives of your kids. However, when the other parent refuses to abide by the terms of this legally binding order, it can cause problems.
