Don't Face a Divorce Alone

Don’t Face a Divorce Alone

When two people are married, they plan to stay together forever. Many times, though, this is just not possible. Our knowledgeable team has helped many clients face a difficult divorce. Divorce can become legally complicated and emotionally draining very quickly, especially when children are involved.

Both Illinois and Missouri offer “no-fault” divorces, meaning one party does not have to be “to blame” for a divorce to be granted by the court. Commonly, couples can cite irreconcilable difference to obtain a divorce. There are, however, situations in which the courts will hear testimony related to fault. In both states this information can affect issues such as child custody and property division.

Regardless of whether a couple decides to pursue a no-fault divorce or share transgressions in court, divorce is rarely simple. There are many factors to consider when trying to separate lives, including:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Division of property
  • Division of assets
  • Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements

Once the court makes a decision, that decision is binding and both sides must follow the orders. The only way to make changes is to go back to court. For example, one parent cannot deny visitation or custody decided by the court. Every family is unique, and many different arrangements can be made. The same is true in determining support.
