How to come to a consensus about child rearing after divorce

After a divorce, it's hard to get along with your ex-spouse. A lot of things have happened that didn't help you get along any better. You know that you have to raise your child together, but neither of you wants to let the other be in control.

It's important to talk to one another about your child and to have open communication about how you expect your child to be raised. Failing to do this can lead to conflicts and end up harming your child in the long run. What should you do to make sure you can work together? Here are a few tips.

How to modify child support in Illinois

If you are paying or receiving child support, you may be able to seek a modification under the new support guidelines that went into effect in July.

In Illinois, you can seek a child support modification if your financial circumstances or your child’s needs have changed since the last support order. You can also seek a modification if the amount you pay or receive will change significantly under the new rules.
