Can I get retirement benefits from my ex-spouse?

If you supported your ex while he or she was going through college, and then stayed home to raise the children during your marriage, it’s understandable that you would feel cheated now that you are divorced and you can’t look forward to a secure retirement. You and other Illinois residents may wonder what to do now that retirement benefits seem to be off the table.

Why do-it-yourself divorces with children are dangerous

After years of marriage, you and your spouse agree to divorce. You worry about the associated costs with separation including buying new property, child support and even the division of your assets. You think that hiring an attorney to help you dissolve your marriage seems like an unnecessary expense.

How to establish paternity in Illinois

At the Law Offices of Dwayne Douglas, PC, we know how much fathers as well as mothers look forward to the birth of their children. But did you know that in Illinois, if you do not marry your children’s mother prior to their births, your children have no legal father? As the Illinois Department of Health and Family Services explains, without a marriage or civil union existing between your children’s parents at the time of their births, they have no legal father, even if you and their mother live together and intend to get married or enter into a civil union in the future.
