Below are just a few of the major issues parties need to consider in getting a divorce. While the courts have tried to simplify the divorce process, recent changes in the law have actually made it much more complex so that attorneys have become even more crucial in getting it done right the first time.
Some Major Issues to Resolve in a Divorce
Property division can be as simple as 50/50 split of assets and debts. But it also can be negotiated in a number of ways as part of resolving spousal maintenance or in splitting retirement funds. The law states property should be "equitably" divided which is not necessarily "equally" divided.
Illinois divorce law has now eliminated the term "custody" and now provides for "allocating parenting time" and "allocating parenting decisions". However, parents still have much flexibility in reaching a mutual agreement that works for their family.
Issues of spousal support (alimony) and child support have seen drastic changes with the passing of maintenance guidelines in 2015 and then a complete overhaul of child support laws in 2017. Even a simple case can require complex calculations.
