Family Law including Divorce, Support, and Allocation of Parental Responsibilities
Divorce. There are two types of divorce cases, contested or uncontested. If the case is uncontested, it means that both parties agree in regards to all aspects of the divorce, including property division, debt payment, child support, maintenance, and allocation of parental responsibility - previously known as child custody, if applicable. However, if the divorce is a contested divorce, it means there is at least one issue that both parties cannot come to an agreement on, and therefore, needs to be addressed.
Support. Maintenance, child support, and college contribution are some of the types of support provided in family law. There are guidelines for the allocation of support.
Allocation of Parental Responsibilities. If the relationship between mom and dad breaks down, the relationship between the parent and child does not have to break down. Naturally, children deserve to have a relationship with both parents. In the event the parties can’t establish an agreed upon parenting plan, the court will determine the parenting time and allocation of parental responsibilities given to each party.Here is the link to the Illinois Department of Health Care and Family Services Child Support Estimator

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy involves the liquidation of a person’s eligible debts. This type of bankruptcy is a helpful tool for those under the suffocating thumb of debt. The process involves the assessment of the debtor’s income, the completion and filing of the petition, and the discharge of the eligible debts. The process will also involve a 341 Meeting in which creditors gather along with the trustee to ask questions and review the filed paperwork. At the end of the process, your eligible debts are discharged and you can start fresh.Here a link to The United States Department of Justice
