Child support basics

When parents choose to divorce or break-up, it's important to take legal steps to resolve issues related to child custody and visitation. Even in cases where parents are on good terms, having a formal child custody agreement helps provide clarity, legal protections and also affords the custodial parent the opportunity to file for child support.

The challenges associated with child custody relocation cases

When parents choose to divorce or separate, they are still bound together by shared parenting responsibilities. This is true even in cases where one parent has sole physical child custody as the noncustodial parent still likely has legal rights to visitation.

Study shows that when it comes to cohabitation and lasting love, age matters

Many Peoria area residents have likely heard the famous quote related to the notion that "with age comes wisdom." While this point can likely be debated on many fronts, there's no doubt that with age comes more life experiences that, at least in theory, should provide an individual with the insight necessary to make more informed and wise decisions.

Until Facebook do us part

The Internet is all abuzz with social media websites and Facebook is among the most well-known and popular of them all. In fact, statistics from February 2014 show that an estimated 57 percent of U.S. adults have a Facebook account. Social media users readily use sites like Facebook to share photos, post comments and express their likes and opinions about a variety of topics. Increasingly, the social media website is also being used by individuals attempting to gather evidence about an ex during divorce or child custody proceedings.
