Moving into a new home due to divorce

The divorce process can bring up many challenges, from legal issues that raise questions and concerns to emotional hardships such as depression. Moreover, someone’s life may change in all sorts of ways when their relationship with their spouse ends. For example, they may not be able to spend as much time with their children, or they may need to move into a new home. Relocation can be tough, and there may be legal issues associated with moving as well (such as parental relocation).  We understand how stressful moving can be, especially for a person who is also dealing with divorce issues, but it is pivotal to be prepared for what lies ahead.

What makes a prenuptial agreement invalid in Illinois?

Prenuptial agreements are not just for the ultrarich or celebrities. If you have any personal or business assets you wish to protect, or if you wish to have control over how your divorce will pan out, you can benefit from a prenuptial agreement. That said, just because you draft an Illinois prenuptial agreement does not mean it is valid in a court of law. There are certain elements that separate a valid prenup from an invalid one. FindLaw details those elements in brief.

Tackling debt during a divorce

Divorcing spouses in Illinois often put a lot of time and energy into figuring out how they split up their marital estate. This may include practical things like who gets what furniture or household items as well as larger financial assets like retirement accounts or a house. In addition to assigning future ownership of assets, couples must also figure out how to split up any joint debt.
