What do you do if your co-parent won't communicate?

You and your ex-spouse are cordial with one another, but once you moved out, you found that it was very difficult to keep the lines of communication open. They would answer you if you wanted to drop off or pick up your child, but they'd ignore questions or concerns you sent to them by email or text.

Dividing assets in a high-conflict case requires a good strategy

Dividing your marital property has the potential to be difficult, especially if either you or your spouse feels that you've contributed more to the marriage and household than the other. Illinois allows for the equitable distribution of your assets, which means that there is not an automatic 50-50 split. This is important to know, because you may need to take more time to negotiate for the assets that you want.

Even if you earn a lot, don't be afraid to ask for support

When you decided that a divorce was right for your situation, it wasn't something you decided upon easily. You knew that it was going to impact your finances and make both of your lives more difficult. You and your spouse live a pretty nice lifestyle now, because you bring in several hundred-thousand dollars a year together. Cutting that in half, or more, is something that will definitely take its toll.
