It might also be some sort of form that your county requires in uncontested cases. There is no such thing as an affidavit...Read more »
I filed for divorce in december 2019 but have been too busy to turn the paperwork in, how long do i have to turn the paperwork in to the court i filed with? It was accepted by the circuit clerk the same day I e-filed.
There are some things missing from this question. When you filed your case, you should have received a case number from the clerk of court. If you filed in December and have not taken action, you are probably going to have to refile the case.
Illinois. 3 year old divorce agreement, seeking modification due to extreme change in circumstances, (massive income loss due to Covid19). My ex is going to hire a "more aggressive attorney". I currently pay her several hundred dollars a month MORE than what my income is.
The court has the discretion to make your new support obligation retroactive to the date that you filed your Petition to Modify. If the court does so, then any time lost because of a new attorney would not be an issue.
I was laid off due to Corona virus and hearing is a month away. Can I submit a letter to the court proving my job loss and reduce support while I wait for hearing? I'm also ordered to cover insurance. How quickly do I need to provide new coverage?
The fact that you have a Hearing scheduled indicates that you filed a Petition/Motion to Modify. The Court, in its discretion, can retroactively relieve you of your support obligation dating back to the date that you filed the Petition/Motion.

The answer to your question lies entirely on the extent of the child's disability, which you have not adequately described. I suggest you at least get a medical opinion. You should know that you have the right to petition the court to get your ex to contribute to your child's living...Read more »

If a person files a motion pro se to suspend parenting time, are they obligated to serve the opposing party? What if the opposing party doesn’t find out about the motion until after the order has been granted?
Proper service of the Motion MUST be given to the opposing party. It is unlikely that the judge would enter an Order without evidence of the necessary Notice that should have been given. If an Order does get entered, and the other party doesn't find out about it until afterwards, he or she can...Read more »

If you have joint decision making and he does not want them to attend school, your agreement should state that you go to mediation. At mediation, you decide whether or not you agree. If you do not reach an agreement at mediation, he has the right to ask you to go to court.
He is moving out of the state and has no established place to live yet. It is true that I would have to also find a smaller living arrangement eventually, but I have always been the one to take care of their finances, medical, and well being. Could he argue that I do not have a permanent living... Read more »

We divorced in 2010 and he received custody of the kids. We have since gotten back together and remarried. Did the original decree become null and void when we remarried? If we get divorced again will it take effect or will a new one be in place?
