The short answer is “yes”. Dealing with immigration and family law issues are life-changing events and you want to get everything right. Unfortunately, a small mistake can lead to disastrous consequences for the rest of your life.
If the case is “uncontested”, i.e., all the issues of division of marital property and spousal support, and if there are children of the marriage, the issues of allocation of parental responsibilities and child support are agreed upon by the parties, the divorce can be finalized in a couple of weeks provided all required conditions for a divorce in Illinois are met. If, however, the divorce is contested, the time frame can vary greatly.
The allocation of parental responsibilities was introduced as a concept with the changes to Illinois Maririage and Dissolution of Marriage Act on July 1, 2016. It replaced the concept of custody with which people are a lot more familiar, but it is basically the same issue. Unless the parties have an agreement, the court will decide which of the parents will make significant decisions related to the parties’ children regarding their education, religious upbringing, extracurricular activities and medical issues.
Illinois law provides a way to determine the amount of child support that is established pursuant to the guidelines enumerated in 750 ILCS 5/505. Illinois provide a online calculator at https://www.illinois.gov/hfs/ChildSupport/parents/Pages/ChildSupportEstimator.aspx so that parents can determine the amount of child support. When both parents are salaried W-2 employees, the formula can give a pretty good idea of the proper amount of child support. However, the issue of child support can be extremely contentious especially if one or both parents are self-employed.
