Divorce, property division and hidden assets

73495332_S.jpgMarriages should be built on trust. Yet, when some Midwesterners contemplate divorce, they begin to shroud themselves in lies. There are many reasons for this behavior. Shame can play a role in instances of infidelity, but oftentimes, these lies have financial motives. Those individuals who know the laws as they pertain to divorce may realize that marital assets will be subjected to property division; thus, they seek to hide assets in an attempt to keep them for themselves.

How to develop a parenting plan for child custody

47230746_S.jpgAs part of the child custody and visitation process, parents are required to submit child custody plans. Because the process of developing a parenting plan for child custody and visitation can be challenging, it is useful for parents to rely on family law resources to help them through the process.

Child custody and the importance of a father's presence

35849393_S.jpgIt's a sad reality, but fathers are often overlooked in our society. This is especially true when viewed through a child custody lens. Mothers automatically retain custody of children who are born out of wedlock and child custody disputes that arise during divorce proceedings can find a man struggling to prove why he is better suited to further his child's best interests. Some men even find it difficult to merely obtain visitation with their children, which is nothing short of tragic.

What is an uncontested divorce?

47215395_S.jpgThere are generally two types of divorce based on whether there are contested issues between the divorcing spouses or not. In circumstances of an uncontested divorce, the divorcing couple are largely able to work out the major divorce-related issues and agree to how they want to resolve property division, spousal support, child support and child custody. Whenever a couple is entering a divorce process, however, it is likely they have questions.

Child support and the skyrocketing cost of daycare

28496312_S.jpgThere is no doubt that the cost of raising a child is enormous. Many parents in the Midwest find themselves struggling to make ends meet, even when both parents are living and working together to meet financial obligations. Oftentimes, however, parents don't live together, which can make sharing the financial responsibility of raising a child even more difficult. These circumstances usually give rise to child support disputes that must be appropriately addressed in order to reach a favorable outcome.

Many contemplate divorce during the summer

39879824_S.jpgSummer is here. Kids are out of school and family vacations are underway. This may be a joyous time for many, but for others, spending more time together only highlights familial strife. Spouses can find themselves bickering over finances, personalities can clash, and differences in parenting styles can be accentuated. This is why there is often an uptick in divorces once the summer comes to an end and children return to school. In fact, a study from 2016 found that March and August see spikes in divorce rates, which can continue for months after children return to school.
