Illinois family law provides protections for unwed fathers

Many Illinois couples decide not to get married these days, but that does not stop them from wanting to have children together. These couples are not alone, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which estimates that the parents of nearly 40 percent of the country's children are not married. Some unwed fathers might not realize that they do not enjoy the same assumptions under family law when it comes to paternity as their married counterparts.

Is Your Spouse Hiding Assets or Income During Your Divorce?

Divorcing spouses are often not on the best of terms. And a common contributing factor to their break-up is money. This holds true for couples from all walks of life. But when you are part of a high net worth couple, financial issues are far more complex than with the typical divorcing couple. In high asset divorces, division of property, spousal support, and child support are often great sources of contention. When you have amassed substantial wealth, it's natural to want to hold on to it. Unfortunately, in some cases, this may drive one spouse to act unethically, or even illegally.
