One of the most dreaded elements of a divorce is addressing the custody of minor children. Parents often fear that they'll lose contact with their kids or that the children will prefer the other parent. This can lead to child custody disputes that could turn into all-out war.
The relationship a parent has with their child is precious. Although advanced technology allows for communication, there is no substitute for the close contact parents have when near their child. One of the most argumentative issues in a divorce is where one parent requests to move the child.
For some couples in Illinois, a healthy divorce seems far out of reach. When issues of domestic violence and abuse exist, divorcing is just as challenging as the marriage was. However, in many cases, a healthy divorce is something couples can achieve, especially when it is a goal shared by both spouses.
