Credit cards and divorce

Those who get divorced in Illinois may find that they are still responsible for joint credit card debts incurred while married. However, there are ways to make sure that marital debts don't haunt an individual in the future. For instance, the debt can be transferred onto a credit card in the former spouse's name. It may also be worthwhile to pay off joint debts before the divorce becomes official.

Housing arrangements and child custody

Parents who are requesting primary child custody may need to present evidence in court about how their living arrangements are suitable for children. A parent's housing arrangements in Illinois could affect their chances of being awarded custody in several ways.

Holiday stress is more pronounced for divorced families

An idealized picture of the holiday season often leads families to nostalgically look back at past memories while creating new ones each year. A more realistic view, however, reveals a great deal of stress and anxiety for many Illinois families, even under the best of circumstances. These feelings become much more magnified for families that have recently divorced. However, there are steps that can be taken to counteract the stress and help ensure a happy holiday season.

Smoothing out divorced parents' struggles in Illinois

Divorce typically causes difficulties when it comes to parenting. While child custody is usually a shared responsibility between the parents, it is not always an easy thing to accomplish. In an ideal world, the adults would put aside their differences to co-parent effectively, but this is not always the case.
