High-asset divorce ends with large payout

Marriage dissolution can affect an individual on many levels. Emotionally, he or she may feel cheated, devastated, disappointed or angry. Although these emotions can be more than enough to cope with, they can only be exacerbated by the potentially life-altering financial changes that can accompany them.

Women may see estate planning through a different lens

Many of us think that we have plenty of time to focus on our retirement. While this may be true for some, many Illinois residents wait far too long before implementing a plan that protects their financial security in the future. The same holds true for estate planning. In most instances, individuals hold off on estate planning because they hate the idea of confronting their own mortality. For others, again, they feel like they have plenty of time to address the issue. Yet, estate planning is something that should be done early and updated often.

What are deceptive trade practices in Illinois?

When Illinois residents buy a good, they probably put little thought into whether they are getting what they are paying for. Sure, a lot of us try to do our research before making a purchase, as is often the case when one buys a car, but we rarely consider whether a business is actually trying to trick us into purchasing something that isn't what we want. There is good reason why we're not concerned. For decades, federal and state legislatures and agencies have worked hard to curtail consumer fraud. Yet, there are still far too many businesses out there that are trying to dupe their consumers.
