Family law, divorce and Covid – the vaccination issue

The issue of vaccination against the Covid virus is affecting families in unprecedented ways. We already have seen a year like no other. And now that children are approved for the vaccine, families have yet another covid topic that divides them. Vaccination of young children is at the forefront of family conflict. In Illinois, we are divided, and the futures of children are at stake. Parents ask themselves if I vaccinate my child/children, will I accidentally negatively affect his/her/their future health in ways not discovered yet ? But if I don’t vaccinate and my child/children get covid, will he/she/they suffer, maybe die or have lifelong lung issues? These are difficult questions for anyone. But for people separating/separated/divorcing/ or divorced, they are particularly contentious. Parents need to face these issues. Ignoring them only postpones the inevitable. We will bring sensitivity and compassion to this and all family law issues. Let us be by your side. We are prepared to file any motions necessary to protect the health of your children.

Divorce, the Holidays, and the Future

We all know the holidays bring memories and reflection. For those of you who are looking at your future and wanting to turn a new leaf, it can be a bittersweet time. You may be feeling alone, like you know you need to change things but don’t know how. Or you know that your relationship isn’t working but you feel stuck. But Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the end of year holidays can bring vision and clarity. They can help you realize that you deserve better. Divorce or separation may be that “better.” It is not something to run from. Self awareness and the idea of better for the whole family is something to run toward. The law is there help give structure and be there as a guide We know that the business of divorce and separation is not fun, but it can lead to so much richer of a life. If you are thinking about this next step and just want to talk (as many people use this time to reflect and not to act), we welcome your inquiries. You do not need to wait until you are perfectly prepared to ask questions and get some answers. This is an imperfect process, and we just want to be there for you as you go through these vulnerable times. We can help you find strength, a support system, clearness of thought, and educated decision-making.
