New Child Support Laws for Illinois


The changes to the Child Support Laws (becoming effective 1/1/16) include an allowable deduction for student loan debt. This is pretty significant because courts have pretty much told folks to take a hike when they ask for a reduction in their child support because of their heavy student loan debt. Now things are different. The courts have to allow such deductions, unless they are prepared to make some pretty extraordinary findings, and award a lower child support amount. 


Many folks ask me how long you can leave your kids in a car alone, or how old do your kids have to be before you leave them alone at home. Well, the answer is not clear, but here is what DCFS uses to determine their position on each case.

New Case: Discovery is Important!


In re Marriage of Lyman
After judgment of dissolution was entered, incorporating MSA, wife filed Section 2-1401 post-judgment petitions claiming fraud and breach of MSA, including alleging that she discovered that husband concealed three assets worth nearly $2 million. Res judicata applies to judgment of dissolution and to matters which could have been decided, such as wife's claim that she did not receive her fair share of final distribution. Wife failed to exercise due diligence when she elected to accept husband's representation of financial disclosure over opportunity to engage in formal discovery.(CUNNINGHAM and CONNORS, concurring.)


New Maintenance (Alimony) Law for Illinois divorces that are effective next year. 

June 2014

Your Bloomington Illinois Divorce Case will be effected by the recent amendments to the Supreme Court Rules. Find out what changes were made and let us know if you have any questions.

Article Published: Exclusive Possession


It can readily be assumed that a pending divorce is difficult for any child to deal with. The tension in the home, between the parents, will probably be a long-lasting memory for the child. In these situations, the home is filled with stress and hurt for most children. But, how much stress and harm must there be before a court can grant exclusive possession to one of the parties of a divorce. The two statutes that a party may proceed under, the IMDMA and the IDVA, hold parties to different standards, and it may turn out that you are using the wrong statute for some of your cases.

Wendy Maulson: Bloomington Il Divorce Attorney
What Clients are Saying

A SUPERB attorney!!! She bent backwards to get me the results I wanted!! I thought all hope was lost and while everyone else refused because they thought it was not worth their time, Ms. Maulson was the only one who spent considerable effort in a short time to work on my case! She was honest, kind, friendly, ethical and upfront. I highly recommend this attorney!! She truly can work wonders!! Do not give up hope!
