4 social media posts that may complicate your custody case

With the popularity of smartphones on the rise, everyone seems to use some type of social media. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other platforms offer excellent opportunities for meeting new friends and staying in touch with old ones. While going through a custody dispute, what you post on social media may be problematic. 

How can I be a better father?

After a divorce, your children will need you more than ever. That's why it's so important to take a look at your skills as a father to determine whether there are any areas in need of improvement. Very Well Family offers the following advice in this case, which allows you to forge a healthy, loving relationship with your child that lasts a lifetime.

Ways a postnuptial agreement could be invalidated

Many couples who have a lot of assets at stake compose prenuptial agreements to describe how they would like their property divided should they decide to divorce. However, not every couple takes this option, though after tying the knot, some couples may wonder if they should have done otherwise. Fortunately, drafting a postnuptial agreement is an option. Still, any couple should be careful that they do not unintentionally make the postnup unenforceable in an Illinois court of law.

Do I need a prenup?

Prenuptial agreements establish rules about asset ownership when a couple enters into a marriage in the event the union ends in divorce. While many people believe these legal documents are only suited to the extremely wealthy, they're quite useful in a wide variety of situations. Forbes offers a few examples of people who should have prenups in place before they marry.
