What happens with your pet when you divorce in Illinois?

You might have heard before of an "amicable divorce". Those spouses that are most apt to reach a friendly conclusion to their marriage are few. It's generally only those who've been married a short time, have little assets and no kids that can amicably resolve their differences. The more property or children that a couple has, the more likely that they are to have to litigate their divorce.

How can I tell if I am headed for divorce?

The day that you exchange vows is one of the happiest days of your life. Then there's the day you finalize a divorce.

How can you tell if your marriage is headed for divorce? Let's explore some warning signs in today's post.

For example, if one or both spouses has not established residency in Illinois, a legal separation can be an effective temporary solution.
