Oak Park divorce attorney parental alienation

Rarely are divorces completely amicable, without any disagreements throughout the divorce proceedings. Divorce often can be an emotional, life-altering process that can be difficult for some people to deal with in a healthy manner. When children are involved, many times the disagreements can increase. Unfortunately, some divorcing parents wrongfully involve their children in their disputes with their soon-to-be-former spouse, and some parents even deliberately attempt to turn their children against their other parent. These kinds of attempts are known as “parental alienation syndrome.” If you suspect that this is occurring in your divorce, you should contact a skilled family lawyer to help protect your rights with regard to your children throughout the case.

Hillside legal parentage lawyer

Parentage (which is also known as paternity) is the legal relationship between a parent and his or her child. If a couple was married or in a civil union when their child was born or within 300 days before the birth, the mother’s spouse is presumed to be the father. However, if the mother and father were not married or in a civil union, paternity must be legally established. Naming a child’s legal parents is important, because it ensures that both parents have a right to participate in the allocation of parental responsibilities, and it allows the child to receive the necessary child support. For fathers who are trying to protect their parental rights or mothers who wish to confirm the parentage of their child, it is important to speak to an experienced family law attorney.

Oak Park right of first refusal lawyer

For couples with children who are going through a divorce, one of the most important aspects of the process is ensuring that their child's best interests are met. The courts require that divorcing parents try to work together to create a parenting plan that will determine each parent’s level of authority in making decisions about raising the child, define schedules for the parenting time the child will spend with each parent, and address other relevant issues. If the parents cannot come to an agreement on these issues, these decisions will be made by the judge in their divorce case. The “right of first refusal” is one issue that may need to be addressed in a parenting plan.

What Is the “Right of First Refusal”?

When a parenting plan is approved by the court, it is expected that each parent will follow the court-ordered parenting time schedule. However, situations may arise in which a parent will not be available during their scheduled parenting time, and they may need to utilize a third-party caregiver, such as a daycare, grandparents, or babysitters for a significant period of time. In these situations, the other parent may want to have the option to care for the children.

Oak Park prenup attorneyNowadays, it’s common for two people who are planning to marry to create and sign a prenuptial agreement. While it was once considered a document that was only necessary for the rich and famous, a prenup can actually provide benefits for couples at all income levels. This type of agreement can help a couple determine ahead of time how their marital property will be divided in the event they decide to part ways and get a divorce. It may also spell out how assets or property will be handled during the marriage, such as whose name will be on mortgages, car loans, insurance policies, retirement benefits, etc. 

When creating a prenuptial agreement, being open and honest regarding what each person brings to the marriage can lay a solid foundation of trust. With a prenup in place, a couple can make decisions that can help avoid conflict if the marriage does not work out.
