Liabilities, as well as assets, must be divided in divorce

Epic divorce battles are fought over which spouse gets the Illinois family home, retirement account, favorite car, or any number of expensive or personally treasured objects of value. And although it is never a good idea and sometimes can be damaging, the kids all too often become the pawns in child custody and child support matters. However, how liabilities are apportioned between the divorcing couple is just as important as each begins their new life.

How divorced parents can help children adjust to holidays

The holidays can be a tough time for parents and children in Illinois following a separation or divorce. Both may be feeling many different emotions, such as anger, loss, betrayal, sadness and fear. Parents must deal with these emotions in a way that does not impact on their children's holiday. The focus at this time needs to be on helping children adjust to the changes and still enjoy a happy holiday season.
