Do you qualify to have your criminal record expunged?

After a criminal conviction in Peoria, you might be wondering how it will affect your future job prospects, whether or not you might be able to attend college, or if it will appear on your background check when you rent a new apartment. You may also be wondering if there is a way to keep it confidential, or to clear it from your record.

2 men face charges for drug crimes after traffic stop

The traffic stop may be one of the most controversial elements of any issue between Illinois residents and law enforcement officers. Officers only need reasonable suspicion to initiate a stop, but they need probable cause in order to go beyond a limited investigation. Without it, any search of your vehicle may not stand up in court if you end up facing charges for drug crimes because of being pulled over by police.

Not every divorce can be amicable

Both print and internet media are full of stories regarding the benefits of a friendly parting of the ways at the end of a marriage. In fact, many Illinois couples may feel compelled to try to work things out amicably because of all the hype. It is true that people tend to end up with better settlements and more satisfactory experiences when the divorce is amicable, but not every couple has the luxury of making this choice.

Will you consider virtual visitation in your Illinois divorce?

Most Illinois parents would agree that the job of raising children comes with plenty of challenges and plenty of joy. When parents divorce, they may struggle to find a way to deal with the added obstacles of parenting from two different households. In many cases, even an amicable split does not allow one parent to spend as much time with the children as he or she would like.

Driver accused of DUI now faces additional charges

A 16-year-old boy was recently taken off life support at an Illinois hospital. He suffered critical and life-threatening injuries when a car struck him as he rode his bike. The driver allegedly responsible failed to remain at the scene at the time of the accident. After the teen's death, prosecutors announced that they will upgrade the charges against the driver to include a charge for causing a fatal accident, along with a DUI charge.
