Child Custody Attorney Serving Greene County Illinois

What tends to make every divorce settlement more complicated is the involvement of children. Trying to come to an agreement about child custody and child support can cause the most problems during a divorce settlement. Under the state of Illinois, if both spouses can’t reach an agreement, the courts decide. The factors that the court considers are what is in the child’s best interest. Deciding on child support is based on two primary things: the amount of parenting time allotted to each spouse and the income of each parent.

Traffic Law Attorney Serving Greene County Illinois

Unfortunately, being cited with a traffic ticket isn’t as simple as paying a fine and moving on with your life. There are more consequences than you might think.

While you can fight the ticket on your own, it could be more beneficial to hire an experienced attorney who does.
