Debt settlement or bankruptcy?

Most people hate the idea of filing for bankruptcy. To them, taking such action is an indication that they have failed financially, and the social stigma attached to them moving forward, they fear, may be more than they can bare. Therefore, many Illinois residents turn to debt settlement options in hopes of avoiding their fears of bankruptcy.

How do Illinois courts determine spousal support?

We've spent a lot of time on this blog discussing the financial ramifications of divorce. Although marriage dissolution can certainly be costly, in some instances, the mere decision to get married can set the stage for potential financial hardship.

We help make estate plan visions become reality

Preparing for the future is something that we should all do, but many of us fail to do adequately. There may be a few reasons for this. First, many of us keep telling ourselves that we have time to prepare for the future. The problem is that we keep telling ourselves that until, eventually, we are out of time.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy not always the right debt relief option

As many Illinois residents know, facing financial difficulty is nothing short of challenging. It can leave an individual feeling overwhelmed and hopeless, while at the same time they are overly stressed with trying to find a way to dig themselves out of debt. Although some of these people are able to get themselves out of debt, others only find themselves falling into a deeper hole. When this is the case, it might be wise to seek debt relief. This may include filing for personal bankruptcy.
