One of our previous posts talked about marriage statistics in the United States and the rising rates of separations and annulments across the country, including Illinois. The post also discussed the issues affecting the more than half of U.S. marriages that end in divorce.
The same post also provided some specific marriage and separation statistics gathered in 2011 for Illinois couples. According to these statistics, approximately 75,000 couples were married, and nearly 35,000 couples were granted divorces that year in Illinois.
A divorce’s impact can be felt in many different ways and the situation can be complicated further if children are involved. Since divorce is usually followed by alimony, child custody, child support and property division, relations between the couple can become bitter if they fail to resolve their differences. Engaging the services of attorney may be one way a divorcing spouse may protect his or her interests.
