Illinois lawmakers are looking at changing how couples can get divorced or separated in the state. The two proposed bills would create the Uniform Collaborative Law Act, which allows couples to use collaborative practice during their divorce proceedings.
Getting a divorce will impact your finances. Unfortunately, many couples going through divorce don't focus enough on the financial implications of divorce and find themselves in financial trouble in the future.
The decision to get divorced is never any easy one to make. There are a lot of legal and financial questions that occur for individuals thinking about getting divorced.
Getting a divorce is never simple, especially for couples who own property. It can be difficult for couples to decide what to do with their house. Should one of them continue living there or should they sell the house?
According to a recent study, women are at great risk of losing health insurance as a result of divorce. The study found that 115,000 women in the United States lose health insurance each year because of divorce. Many might think that women can just purchase new health insurance on their own through COBRA or buying private insurance. Unfortunately these plans tend to be very expensive, and women might have a difficult time paying for them. Even women who make well above the poverty level and are considered middle-income might have difficulty making payments.
