Family law attorneys must shift gears on child support

One of the most hotly contested issues between parents, whether divorced or separated, is child support. Even though most parents understand that they are obligated to financially support their children even if they no longer live with them, noncustodial parents often feel as though the "system" takes advantage of them. They believe that Illinois family law stacks the deck against them and leaves them paying more than they believe is right.

5 people arrested for drug crimes after home raid

The federal Drug Enforcement Administration and local law enforcement agencies here in Illinois and across the country do what they can to keep illegal substances off the streets. They conduct numerous investigations, raids and arrests to that end. In their zeal, the sometimes make mistakes and violate the rights of those they suspect of drug crimes.

Traffic violations can lead to several penalties

Traffic violations like speeding or running a stop sign might not seem very important in the long run, but they have the potential to impact you and your ability to drive. While one or two violations over a few years isn't likely to result in much more than fines from officers, if you have repeated violations, you could get so many points on your license that it's suspended.

The family law topic no one likes to talk about: Domestic abuse

Like other Illinois families, yours more than likely has its share of disagreements. If those incidents escalate, you may feel as though you need protection from a loved one. In family law, there are both civil and criminal repercussions for abusers, or potential abusers in the form of protection orders.
