IL divorce lawyerA name is a crucial part of your identity. Although it has become more popular for women to keep their birth name after getting married, a person who changes their name also has the option to change it back after a divorce.

A person may decide to change their name back to their birth name to disassociate themselves from their ex-partner.

Will County divorce lawyersIn divorce, each party has their own grief, anger, regret, and feelings of betrayal to overcome. Sadly, the typical divorce process often exasperates these negative emotions by placing the divorcing parties on opposite “sides.” Tempers can flare, and each one may forget that they used to love one another and may, instead, focus on what they can walk away with once the divorce process is complete.

When you add children into the mix, a contentious situation can become downright catastrophic - namely for the children who still love both of their parents.
