Billionaire couple's divorce takes interesting turn

Many Lake County, Illinois, residents know that the end of a marriage brings with it many challenges. Child custody, property division and child support are only some of the complicated matters that couples have to deal with and resolve. Things can become even more complicated when the couple is in the public eye all of the time.

Adequate guidance during divorce can help with child custody

Many U.S. couples, including those of Lake County, Illinois, will agree that a divorce can present a unique set of challenges for spouses. A few of the complicated issues accompanying divorce are spousal support, child custody, child support and property division. In addition, couples may find it difficult to deal with these processes single handedly. Professional support is usually needed in all matters, including child custody.

A few notes on child support in Illinois

In Illinois, or elsewhere in the United States, a child is entitled to child support from his or her parents, should they divorce. The money that a non-custodial parent pays goes to provide food, clothing, education and everyday expenses, known as child support.

What are the domestic violence laws in Illinois?

Residents of the United States, including Illinois, need to understand that if a person causes physical harm to anyone else, either in a relationship or within the family boundaries, then the state may charge that person with domestic violence. Generally, there are two types of domestic violence laws: criminal domestic violence and civil domestic violence. While the former focuses on any actual physical harm, the latter covers all physical, sexual and emotional injuries.
