Illinois Custodianship Uniform Transfers To Minors Act Explained

In this Learn About Law episode Kevin discusses the powers of the custodian and the certain rights and responsibilities they have.

In this article we will explain everything you need to know about Illinois custodianships and the Illinois Uniform Transfers to Minors Act.

What is a custodianship?

The Illinois Uniform Transfer to Minors Act (760 ILCS 20, et. seq.) allows one to transfer property to a minor, subject to the management of a custodian. A custodianship in Illinois is a relationship whereby an adult is given the power to manage a particular piece of property on behalf of a minor until the minor reaches age 21.  The transfer is an irrevocable gift, and the minor receives legal title to the custodial property.  The minor’s guardian will have no authority with respect to the property.

Illinois divorce attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains spousal maintenance.

Illinois Divorce Attorney, Illinois Family Law Attorney, Illinois Divorce Lawyer, Illinois Family Law Lawyer

In this article our Illinois divorce lawyers explain the points of emphasis considered by the courts when determining whether spousal maintenance, also known as alimony, is appropriate.  Maintenance can be paid in different ways, such as paying by continuing payments on a temporary or permanent basis, or paid through a lump sum.

The goal for divorce courts is to put the parties involved in a situation where the standard of living for both parties is as close as possible to the standard of living during the marriage.  The courts consider factors such as the earning capacity of each spouse, the duration of the marriage, and any type of sacrifices one spouse made during the marriage for the other spouse’s career or business.

Comparing Collaborative Law Divorce & Cooperative Divorce

In this article, Illinois family law attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains some alternatives to traditional divorce. Using both Collaborative Law Divorce and Cooperative Divorce, parties involved work together to freely share information and negotiate the terms of a marital settlement agreement outside of court.  Collaborative Divorce means that attorneys from both parties must withdraw if the negotiation process is unsuccessful and litigation is necessary. In a Cooperative Divorce, that attorneys that represented the parties in the Cooperative Divorce can continue to represent the parties if the parties are unable to come to an agreement outside of court and litigation becomes necessary.  Collaborative Law Divorce and Cooperative Divorce are both efficient options to make the divorce process less stressful and less expensive. Our Illinois divorce lawyers explain the pros and cons of each, and in which situation traditional divorce may be a better option.

In this article, our Illinois family law attorneys explain some recent changes to divorce law in Illinois. In 2016 the Illinois Marriage and Defense of Marriage Act (the "IMDMA") saw several changes.  The intent of these changes was to reduce the likelihood of disputes and to bring the language of the Act in line with the modern realities and understanding of marriage, divorce, and parenting.  

Irreconcilable differences will now be the only grounds for divorce in Illinois.  Previously, parties could list irreconcilable differences or one of the several specific statutory grounds when filing for a divorce.  However, irreconcilable differences used to require a time of living separate and apart than specific grounds (2 years).  Now, the time of living separate and apart is 6 months and can be waived if both parties agree.
