3 collateral consequences of a protracted divorce battle

In a now-famous scene from the 1979 movie, “Kramer v. Kramer,” an attorney puts Meryl Streep’s character on the witness stand and asks her if she was a failure during her marriage. The exchange is both entertaining and riveting, likely contributing to Streep’s Best Supporting Actress Oscar for the film. It raises an important question, though. Is divorce through a court battle worth it? 

Learning to co-parent with a toxic individual

Divorced parents in Illinois who are attempting to co-parent with a difficult ex-spouse may be interested in learning steps that they can take to make the co-parenting experience better. Co-parenting with a toxic individual can be frustrating; they may be constantly pushing boundaries and making unfounded accusations.

How to maintain the parent-child relationship from a distance

There are many ways Illinois parents can bond with their children after a divorce even if they live a long distance away. They should keep in mind that scheduled visits and phone calls are not the only way to stay in touch. They can call at unscheduled times, or they can send encouraging messages using postcards. Text, social media and email all provide additional ways for parents to stay in touch with children, and they can also ask their children what they prefer.

Divorce mediation and convincing a spouse to take part

When an Illinois couple is experiencing marital problems and contemplating divorce, the issues that sparked the strife can be complicated and difficult to get beyond. It may seem simpler to go straight to court. For many couples, however, negotiation and divorce mediation can be a better option.
