- Q. Can I remove my kids, 10 & 14, out of my husband's home and bring with to rent a house? In Chicago
- A: Your Judgment for Dissolution should state who the residential parent is. If it is you, then you are free to move with the children.
- Q. I have been married to my husband for 25 years. I caught him having an affair for a year. Can I sue her for anything?
- A: No, you cannot. Illinois abolished its Alienation of Affection law a couple of years ago.
- Q. How can I file for divorce if I can't find my spouse? She lives in another country but we got married in Illinois.
- A: You would merely file for divorce and serve your wife via publication in a newspaper that is approved by the county in which you file. You will likely need an attorney.
