Being a loyal and supportive parent despite divorce

Divorce can put in a wrench in a lot of areas of a couple's life, particularly in their ability to continue parenting their children without allowing the stress of their relationship to take over. For divorced fathers in Illinois, particularly those who are the non-custodial parent in their relationship, this challenge is exponentially more difficult. Often, despite their undying desire to continue loving and supporting their children, logistics and opinions make accomplishing this objective quite difficult. 

Turning your in-laws into ex-laws

When you walked down the aisle, you likely expected to remain married to your spouse forever. You also may have gained a new family, comprising your spouse and his or her parents, siblings and other relatives. During your divorce, though, you must understand how to turn your in-laws into ex-laws effectively. 

Understanding the factors that play into your alimony requirement

As your divorce moves through the court process in Illinois, one requirement you may be given is that you provide alimony for your former spouse. While you may have softly anticipated this, hearing that you are still responsible for sustaining your ex's lifestyle may be a bit unnerving. At Butler, Giraudo & Meister, P.C., we are committed to helping people manage their divorce with confidence and efficiency. 

Shared financial management may pay off during a divorce

For many Illinois residents, one of the most challenging aspects of divorce relates to finances. This may be especially true for individuals who did not pay attention to or manage household spending during the marriage. Allowing both spouses to share money management tasks and responsibilities may reduce stress and conflict during a divorce.
