DIVORCE TERMS DETERMINATION
You and your divorcing spouse will need to agree on the fundamental terms of your divorce, such as:
● Parenting time and parental duties (child custody arrangements)
● Asset division in a marriage
● Aid to children
● Support from your spouse
Anything you and your soon-to-be-ex can agree on will put you ahead of the game, but this does not mean you and your soon-to-be-ex must operate in perfect sync, which is rare. You have options for your divorce conversations before you have to ask the court to intervene on your behalf, such as having your respective
negotiate on your behalf and/or going to mediation.
THE FINANCIAL ASPECTS
The financial and child-related aspects of your divorce are divided, and the financial portion includes both the distribution of your marital assets and spousal maintenance (if applicable). The assets and properties you and your spouse acquired throughout your marriage are referred to as marital assets. In the event of divorce, these are supposed to be shared between the two of you in an equitable - or fairway in light of the circumstances. Any property you bring into the marriage – and keep separate throughout – will remain your independent property. While this appears to be a simple task, it can rapidly become complicated.
While alimony is far from a foregone conclusion in divorce, it might be beneficial if one spouse faces a significant financial setback and the other has the financial wherewithal to compensate. The financial aspect of your divorce is made up of these items.
THE ELEMENT OF PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY IN YOUR DIVORCE
Aside from your finances, there's the topic of your children to consider. Parental responsibility and parenting time are terms used in Illinois to describe child custody. Parental obligations refer to the significant decisions you must make on behalf of your children, such as the following:
● Religious education
● Medical treatment and care
These obligations might be shared or carried out alone by one parent. Parenting time, on the other hand, refers to who the children will reside with and what visiting schedule they will follow. The state has standard visiting schedules that it mandates regularly, but if you can come up with a plan that you agree on, the court is almost certain to accept it. Because the court always considers the children's best interests when making custody judgments and believes that preserving ties with both parents is in the best interests of the children, it rarely removes a parent from visits entirely.
