Can I get a prenup in both English and Spanish?

I am about to get married and think I might need a prenup. I’ve been working toward starting a business and if it does well, I might earn substantially more money than I am earning right now. My wife has a good job now as an interpreter but is talking about quitting her job after we marry to have kids. I want to protect myself from an alimony claim if my fiancé and I get married and it doesn’t work out. She is from Nicaragua and speaks and reads mostly Spanish. What do I need to do to get a prenup and should it be in English, Spanish, or both?

How do I modify child support in Chicago if I’m working less?

My son’s mother and I both live in the Chicago area and I’ve been regularly paying child support for over 5 years. My work has cut back my hours during the pandemic and have not let us know when, or if, we’ll be returning to our regular hours. I’ve tried to make the court-ordered payments as long as I can by working side jobs and selling some of my property, but I can’t keep it up much longer. My ex says if I don’t pay the exact amount in the court order she’ll file for contempt against me. What can I do to get my child support lowered, at least while COVID-19 is still causing shutdowns, and what do I do if she does file contempt papers?

How does a divorce trial work in Chicago?

I’m in the middle of a contested divorce with my husband who was mentally and physically abusive to me. The judge has made us attend settlement conferences but we haven’t been able to resolve anything and I don’t even want to be in the same room with him. The judge said if we don’t settle, we have to go to a contested divorce trial. I have not been happy with my current attorney who seems to think we are going to have trouble proving the abuse. I think it’s a big part of my case. If I fire my attorney, can I represent myself in a divorce trial and how does that work/what do I need to know? Am I allowed to testify about the abuse and bring in witnesses? If I do need an attorney, will one take the case when we are already halfway through?
