What to do in the aftermath of a car accident

The first thing a person in Illinois should do after a car accident happens is to stay calm and see whether there are any emergencies. If the accident has not happened in a place where the vehicles need to be moved, they should be left where they are, so police can document their positions.

Truck crashes, fatalities have increased for 3 straight years

Illinois motorists should know that fatal truck accidents in the United States increased in 2015, 2016 and 2017, according to new data released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The information was presented in January at the 2019 Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

Common factors often lead to divorce

There are a number of reasons why couples in Illinois may decide to divorce, especially as every relationship is unique. Oftentimes, multiple contributing factors lead to a marriage ending. Some people may separate somewhat amicably after growing apart over the years. In other cases, extramarital affairs or other breaches of trust can play a significant role in ending the marriage.

Avoiding potentially costly mistakes in a divorce

There are several mistakes that Illinois couples who are getting divorced often make. One common mistake is sharing too much on social media. Posting pictures from a vacation or bragging about a business deal may result in leverage for the other person to obtain a larger settlement. Another common mistake is failing to close joint accounts after a divorce is official.

Planning a parenting schedule

When filing for divorce in Illinois, couples who have minor children should consider how they will create a parenting plan that works well for their children and for both parents. Working together to create a schedule is an important step toward helping children adjust to life after a divorce.
