How can a prenup help protect what you hold dear?

As a recently engaged person, you may have felt elated that your life has reached this point. Of course, once the euphoria of the moment has passed, you likely know that your future marriage will undoubtedly have its issues, as all relationships do. Though you and your future spouse may work through many of the conflicts that could arise, the possibility of facing divorce may have also crossed your mind.

Steps to getting a protective order

A protection order in Illinois acts as a deterrent to help keep people safe from a known assailant. The Illinois General Assembly states that an order of protection can be obtained by someone being abused, neglected or mistreated by a family member, care giver or member of the household. In order to get a protective order, a person must file a petition with the court. If a person already has a related case in court, the petition can be filed as part of that case. For example, if a person is getting divorced and wants an order against the soon-to-be ex-spouse, then it can be filed as part of that case.

Considerations in securing financial aid during divorce

If you have ever gone through an Illinois divorce, you know that separating from your spouse involves big changes in many areas of your life. While you may not have to give it the same immediate attention you would, say, finding a new residence, it is important to understand how your divorce may affect your child’s ability to secure financial aid for college. At Fawell & Fawell, we have helped countless clients navigate through separations and divorces, and we have a firm understanding of the various areas in which doing so may impact your life.
