Dealing with both sides of domestic violence


Issues surrounding families in Illinois can be very emotional. Many times, the emotions are love and caring, but sometimes, the emotions are on the other end of the spectrum. Family members can become very angry with each other over certain issues. Unfortunately, this anger can lead to physical violence in a home. At times, this situation involves only two people and is what is commonly referred to as a "he said, she said" incident.

Right of first refusal in child custody matters in Illinois


Many parents in Illinois have joint custody of their children. Even if the parents do not have joint child custody arrangements, most times, the non-custodial parent still receives visitation with the children. Generally, the parents have a visitation schedule that states when the children will be with each parent on a regular basis. Once ordered, each parent is required to follow it.

How does one receive child support in Illinois?

Many people in Illinois are involved with child support orders either on the paying end or the receiving end. Having a child support order in place requires one parent to pay the other parent, but the order by itself does not ensure that the receiving parent will actually get the money. Arrangements need to be made in order for the exchange of money to take place.

Required investigation prior to adoption in Illinois


There are many children in Illinois in need of a good home and there are many families who want to have families. In other circumstances a child's biological parent is no longer capable of caring for their child and another family member decides to care for them instead. In both types of situations, adoption is a very good way to accomplish this goal. Adoption grants the new parents the legal parenting rights of child and officially makes the child a part of the family.
