How can you protect your children during the divorce process?

47215401_S.jpgParents in Illinois will go to the ends of the world in order to protect their children. While it is impossible to protect young ones from all the risks, downfalls and upsetting situations in life, parents have the ability to reduce the negative impact certain life events can have on their children. This is especially true for those parents ending a marriage. It is clear that this process will alter the life of their children; however, there are opportunities to reduce this.

Understanding fathers' rights and how to protect them

25281074_S.jpgMany say that a woman becomes a mother as soon as she becomes pregnant, while a man becomes a father after a baby is born. No matter how you view this situation, the reality is that every child has a mother and a father. The unfortunate reality is that some fathers are not provided the parental rights they are afforded after the birth of their child.

Helping you assert your fathers' rights

44519860_S.jpgWhether married or unmarried, parents in Illinois face a wide variety of challenges. While most of these involve how best to raise a child, some parents fight to assert their parental rights. In some cases, fathers are not instantly afforded parental rights when a child is born. Sometimes a father must take certain steps to invoke his rights, because it must be proven that he is in fact the father.

What are the benefits of an open adoption?

15223906_S.jpgAs a previous post highlighted, various types of families often utilize adoption. And depending on the needs and wishes of the biological and adoptive parents, adoption can look very different from family to family. While there is no correct type of adoption, some tend to provide a wider range of benefits. Because it can be tough to place a child up for adoption and never look back, biological parents sometimes seek an open adoption.

Understanding the different types of adoption in Illinois

18919061_S.jpgNot all families are developed the traditional way. Because not all women are able to conceive or carry a child full-term, some individuals in Illinois and elsewhere become parents through adoption. While this is a very beneficial process in society, giving adults the opportunity to become parents and for children to have a safe and loving home, it is also a complex process. Even more so, adoption can look very different from family to family, mostly because they are shaped to meet the needs of those gaining and giving up parental rights.
