BREAKING UP ISN'T EASY but... THE LEGAL ASPECT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A NIGHTMARE if you READ my Divorce Book or Talk to a Divorce Attorney
Breaking up and its aftermath is never easy. Sometimes relationships fizzle out and both people decide to call it quits. Sometimes things are going along fine and then something happens and you end up blindsided and single again. And then, if you were married or in a civil union, or if there are children involved- there are the legal consequences to deal with. Ugh. I know. What now?
I firmly believe that the more you know about what is happening, the better equipped you will be to deal with it and to help your family get through it. That is why this site provides frequent updates full of information to help you if you are facing a legal break up - whether married, in a civil union, or never married with kids to take care of. I have also written a brief divorce guide and also a more comprehensive book, Defending the Ending, to help Illinois residents understand the legal aspects of divorce. These tools are free for download to Illinois residents who are considering or facing divorce. A physical copy of the book is also available for free for residents of Cook, DuPage, and Kane counties (or for purchase if you live outside of those counties). It was written for you to help answer the questions which are running through your mind, based on my experience of over 15 years in talking to people who are faced with divorce. It will help you to better understand the legal phases of divorce, what the courts in Illinois consider when deciding child custody and spousal support ("maintenance"), discusses common worries over the house, the kids, child support and more. It will also teach you how to select the right lawyer for you.
