When Illinois couples go through divorce, many changes may affect them as well as their children. Because individuals typically begin living in different houses after a separation, parental relocations could become an issue. If a parent feels the need to move to a different area, child custody agreements may have to be made or re-examined due to that particular condition.
It was recently reported that children in higher-income families appear to be most affected after their parents' divorce than children in middle- and lower-income families. Because children may have grown up with a certain amount of privilege, the financial impact of divorce could affect them as much as the adults involved. A household may go from having two income sources to only one, or if it was a one-income household to begin with, one parent may become heavily reliant on child support.
