Navigating The Latest Changes In Illinois Divorce Law

Illinois divorce law underwent key updates in 2023. At Lake Toback DiDomenico, our experienced attorneys understand that these changes can be confusing. We’re here to discuss the most significant revisions and how they might impact your divorce proceedings.

One crucial update empowers a parent seeking to relocate with their child during a divorce to present evidence demonstrating it’s in the child’s best interests. The court will carefully consider factors like the child’s relationship with each parent, the new living environment and potential disruption to education. Our knowledgeable team can guide you through crafting a compelling relocation argument that prioritizes your child’s well-being.

Another significant change allows a party facing financial hardship to request a retainer payment from their spouse to cover legal fees. This ensures that both parties have a fairer chance of securing legal representation throughout the divorce process. We can advise you on navigating this request and ensure your voice is heard.

Finally, the introduction of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) provides additional support for children caught in the middle of divorce proceedings. CASAs act as neutral advocates, investigating the child’s best interests and presenting their findings to the court. Our team can help you understand how a CASA might impact your case and ensure open communication.
