Relationship interactions can lead to divorce

There are a number of reasons why couples in Illinois decide to divorce, and in most cases, there are multiple causes for a separation. Counselors and other experts have identified marital issues that are more likely to lead to divorce. For example, some point out that contempt directed toward one spouse from the other is a key sign of a marriage that is on the road to an end. When people resent their spouses or look down on them, it can affect all of the interactions between the couple. Fundamentally, the spouses no longer like each other, and almost everything can be viewed through a negative light.

Coparenting requires strong boundaries for parents, too

It is rarely easy for two parents to raise their child separately, but coparenting after divorce or separation may ultimately be the best solution for everyone involved. Still, there are many pitfalls along the way, and if one or both parents do not respect each other's rights and boundaries while raising their child, everyone may suffer.

Dealing with a mortgage during divorce

Married Illinois couples who decide to split will likely have to resolve disputes regarding a range of issues, including child support and alimony. They may also find themselves having to address what should happen with the family home, which could be one of the most valuable assets they possess. In many situations, one spouse will take control of the home. However, it is important that both parties understand their options before a decision is made.
