Oak Forest child relocation lawyer

Families relocate now more than ever before. The modern improvements in technology and transportation make it easier for families to move and keep in touch after relocating. Many divorced couples will choose to do this to help themselves move on from their previous marriage. However, while adults have the right to choose when and where they move, the court has a say in all relocation cases involving children. There are three common situations in which court approval may need to be obtained for child relocation: when a parent moves at the time of the divorce, when a parent moves after the divorce, and when an unwed parent chooses to relocate. Married or not, adults who share children together must get permission from the court if their planned move could potentially affect their existing child custody and parenting time agreements or their child's relationship with the other parent.

What Factors Will the Court Review?

When a parent petitions the court for permission to relocate, or when a parent seeks to prohibit their former partner from moving with their child, the court will determine whether the planned move is in the child's best interests. In most cases, a judge will seek to protect both parents’ rights to spend time with their child. For most children, having both parents in their lives is beneficial, and this idea can affect the court’s ruling on relocation. However, if a child has been exposed to domestic abuse, or if parents continue to argue regularly, relocation may be the best thing that will allow the child to flourish in a conflict-free environment.

Tinley Park prenuptial agreement lawyer

Prenuptial agreements have become much more common in recent years. In the past, prenups were exclusive to wealthy couples to protect their finances in the case of a future divorce. There are various explanations given for why prenups have become so popular. Some say it is because couples are getting married later and thus have acquired more wealth before marriage, while others attribute the influx to the rise of female equality in America. Regardless of the reason, many couples view prenups as a necessity, and it is important to understand what should be included in this kind of legal documentation.

What Can Be Included in My Prenup?

  • Properties: There are two types of property that exist in a marriage, separate and marital. Property that is considered separate includes everything acquired before the legal marriage. Marital property is that which is gained during the marriage. Prenups can allow you to deem some property separate and some marital before saying “I do.”
