Yes, social media can complicate your divorce

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms seem to be everywhere these days. In fact, you probably cannot walk into a restaurant or store without seeing someone documenting the experience on social media. While most posts are harmless, some could complicate your divorce proceedings. 

What can I do about loneliness over the holidays?

As a single father in Illinois, the holidays may be a lonely time for you. It can be hard to adjust to a divorce, especially when you're separated from your kids for the first time in a long time. In this case, there are steps you can take to deal with loneliness over the holidays while also taking care of yourself. Live About offers the following advice.  

Divorce as a high-profile CEO

For any couple, bringing a marriage to an end can be challenging. There may be many different family law issues to deal with for those who have kids, whether there is disagreement over child custody or child support matters arise. Parents are not the only ones who often face problems during a divorce, however. Those who are wealthy and receive a lot of attention may also face a particularly hard time when they bring their marriage to an end. If you are a high-profile CEO in Illinois, you may have to take special care when you approach the process of divorce.

Alimony and stress management

Paying spousal support can be incredibly tough for those going through financial hardships, such as someone who has lost their job or a person who is struggling with a health problem that is very costly to deal with. These situations can result in a great deal of stress, especially for someone who has already been through a lot after dealing with a difficult divorce. Some people may even be stressed out about making alimony payments in general, even though they have no financial issues that make it difficult to stay caught up. If you are going through these difficulties, it is vital to manage your stress well.

  • I cannot even express in words the level of gratitude that I feel. ‘Thank you’ doesn't seem to be enough. Please know that your services and compassion will never be forgotten! I am forever grateful!

  • Thank you so much for your hard work and expertise. I feel as a father in the state of Illinois that what I am trying to achieve is nearly impossible. I am so glad I chose to have your office full of extremely intelligent women represent me.

  • We would like to say thank you for your expertise, education, and kindness when we met with you! Your confidence has helped to comfort us and give us hope that resolution of the issue is possible.

  • I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your time, energy, and efforts you put into our case. Thank you for helping make our son's quality of life better. I cannot tell you how happy we are!
