Harsh penalties for fentanyl analogues could be permanent

Illinois residents might have heard of the Stopping Overdoses of Fentanyl Analogues Act that is being considered by Congress. The Drug Enforcement Agency, the Department of Justice and the National Association of Attorneys General have all championed the SOFA Act, saying that it could be a solution to cut down on the illegal supply of fentanyl-like analogue drugs in the United States.

Examining your prenuptial agreement for weaknesses

Couples who create a prenuptial agreement before marriage enjoy benefits that can ease tensions in a marriage and make the divorce process easier if spouses choose to go their separate ways. Unfortunately, having a prenuptial agreement does not guarantee a smooth divorce. If an agreement contains weaknesses, a spouse who does not feel the agreement is fair may challenge it, especially in a high-asset divorce.

Racial gap still a problem in criminal sentencing

Racial disparity continues to affect the criminal justice system in Illinois and across the country, despite ongoing work for criminal justice reform. The Council on Criminal Justice, a nonpartisan group bringing together government officials, police representatives and advocates for justice reform, released a report saying that there were signs of significant positive progress in reducing the racial gap in imprisonment and sentencing. However, experts also noted that disparity continues to pose a serious barrier and that more needs to be done to make the system a fairer, less biased space for all.

Helping children of divorce enjoy the holidays

The holiday season can be stressful for anyone living in Illinois. However, it's often even more stressful after a divorce. That's why separated parents should do everything that they can to ensure that their children have a happy experience during this time of year. Ideally, the adults will put their hurt feelings aside and listen to what their sons and daughters want to do.
