If you are an unmarried parent or you plan to divorce, you may have questions and concerns about child custody. In Illinois, the term “child custody” is still used informally, but the state does not officially use the terms custody and visitation when referring to parenting duties. Instead, parenting duties are divided into parental responsibilities, meaning a parent’s authority to make decisions about the child’s schooling, healthcare, and other important matters, and parenting time, or the physical time a child spends with each parent.

Television shows and movies have perpetuated many misconceptions about divorce. The most prevalent of these false beliefs is the notion that a divorce case will be wrought with turmoil and conflict if the spouses hire attorneys. On the contrary, having a divorce attorney can help you and your spouse negotiate a divorce settlement agreement without a stressful courtroom showdown. In fact, many divorce attorneys now utilize collaborative law to resolve divorce issues without litigation.

Activision Blizzard is responsible for some of the most popular video games on the market, including “Candy Crush,” “Call of Duty,” and many more. However, the company’s good reputation has recently been threatened by accusations of discrimination and sexual harassment. Many employees claim that they faced sex-based discrimination, retaliation, and even assault. The company was faced with a discrimination lawsuit on July 20, 2021, but some employees have been less than impressed with the company’s response to the lawsuit.

When we think of newlyweds, we typically imagine happy couples joyfully embarking on their marriage relationship. Unfortunately, for some spouses, the days, weeks, and months after the wedding are fraught with regret. If you got married and then realized that the marriage was a mistake, you may be eager to end the relationship. You may wonder whether you can get your marriage annulled. In Illinois, annulment is possible, but only under certain conditions. Married couples who do not meet the criteria for annulment must end their marriage through divorce.
