Job loss and family law matters

Losing a job can be hard for many reasons, such as destroying dreams and shattering careers. It is very important to be aware of some of the other ways in which this hardship can carry over into someone’s life, especially if they are involved in a serious relationship. For example, someone’s marriage may be threatened by the loss of their job, whether they experience strain in their relationship due to financial stress and disagreement or develop depression and other challenges that can affect their relationship. Moreover, the loss of a job can lead to other types of family law challenges.

Should joint custody be an option for you?

As a resident of Illinois who is going through a divorce while you have kids to take care of, the entire situation can feel incredibly high stakes. At the Law Offices of Johnson & Buh, we're here to help you deal with stresses like determining what your custody situation will look like.

How children can benefit from joint-custody arrangements

As an Illinois parent, chances are, you want to maximize the amount of time you get to spend with your children before they head off to college or otherwise begin life on their own. Once you divorce your child’s other parent, however, this can become decidedly more difficult, and you may find yourself adjusting to a joint-custody arrangement. At the Law Offices of Johnson & Buh, we understand that joint-custody arrangements are not always desirable for all parties involved, but we also recognize that such arrangements can have positive effects on children.

Should I hire an attorney if I want an uncontested divorce?

Alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation and collaborative law are on nearly everyone's minds when they are considering a divorce. After all, who wants to go through a contentious, expensive and lengthy court battle if you can get your divorce over with in a few mediation sessions? However, you and other Illinois residents should understand that while these uncontested divorce options have numerous benefits, they are not always as simple as they seem.

Should I go to court instead of choosing an uncontested divorce?

You may have learned from family, friends and your own research that alternative dispute resolution methods have many benefits over a litigated divorce. While it is true that mediation and collaborative law can help many Illinois couples end their marriages amicably, uncontested divorce is not for everyone. If you have doubts as to whether an uncontested method is for you, it may be wise to consider your individual circumstances.

You have control over your child support spending

When you begin receiving your child support checks, you may be concerned about whether your ex-spouse can dictate how you spend the money, or if the family law court will monitor your spending. This may be especially worrisome if your ex was controlling during your marriage or if he or she is currently making comments about your child support spending. At the Law Offices of Johnson & Buh, we understand that this can be stressful. You and other Illinois can be reassured when you know your rights surrounding child support.

Understand orders of protection before leaving an abuser

For those who have spent too long with an abusive partner, it can be difficult to find the courage to leave. You may feel financially or emotionally dependent on your spouse. You could also be afraid for your physical safety, as well as that of your children. At the Law Offices of Johnson & Buh, we understand that finding freedom from an abusive spouse can be hard and even dangerous. We are prepared to answer the questions of Illinois residents hoping to put some peace and safety back into their lives.
