Dealing with a high conflict divorce

11686437_S.jpgFiling for divorce is by no means easy. And even if one or both spouses agree that it is best for them to end their union, this does not mean that there aren't any emotions or that they are not hurt by the fact that their marriage is over. In some cases, divorcing couples in Illinois and elsewhere might be faced with difficult divorce decisions, causing a heated debate. And while no one intends to or expects that their dissolution will resemble a battle filled with conflict, the fact of the matter is that this could happen.

What makes a military divorce different from a civilian divorce?

35462374_S.jpgAs a previous post discussed, divorces for military service members can be different and more complex when compared to civilian divorces. Because military laws apply to certain aspects, the process itself can be prolonged or complicated. Thus, those filing for a divorce should understand what protections are provided military members and what issues they should pay special attention to.

Helping you through the military divorce process

52726583_S.jpgSpouses in Illinois and elsewhere can have careers that can significantly impact a marital relationship. While there is a wide variety of civilian careers that can do this, the demanding lifestyle of a military career can put strain and stress on a marriage. This is especially true when the military spouse is deployed or training in a different state. The lengthy separation for months and even years can cause a marriage to break, causing spouses to face the reality of divorce.

The growing trend away from sole custody during divorce

58904961_S.jpgParents always want what is best for their children. How can they help it? A child is his or her world, and during a divorce, parents in Illinois and elsewhere will do anything to limit the negative impact the process could have on the child. This requires not only considering the dissolution process itself but also how the post divorce life will look. In some cases, a parent might have so much animosity with their former spouse that they seek to go to great lengths to either protect the child from their ex or file for sole custody. Whether this is out of care or spite, it is often a custody arrangement that is difficult at achieving.
