Facing overwhelming debt? You're not alone

When you're struggling with debt, it can be easy to feel alone. One reason for this is because many people who find themselves overwhelmed with debt feel embarrassed. They therefore choose not to discuss the matter with family and friends, let alone seek debt relief options. However, this isolation can only contribute to one's stress. Those facing this type of situation should know that they are not alone.

Consider whether a non-marital agreement is right for you

Ending a marriage is not an easy process. Getting divorced can leave couples facing a number of family law issues. Amongst these matters are child custody, child support, property division and alimony. While these legal issues can be highly contested in a marriage dissolution, the fact of the matter is that they can also arise in the context of non-marital relationships. Nowadays, many couples are choosing to live together for years without tying the knot, which can make it challenging to legally divide their lives when their relationship sours.

Estate planning can include cryptocurrencies

Preparing for the end of life is an uncomfortable topic for most. However, ensuring that one's estate plan is secure in a legally sound fashion is critical. Not only can it ensure that one's assets are distributed in accordance with his or her wishes upon death, but it can also protect those assets from the oftentimes aggressive reach of creditors and the federal government. Some may feel that estate planning is a rather simple task that can be completed in a moment's notice. This, unfortunately, simply is not true.

Questions to ask when considering bankruptcy

Many Illinois and Indiana residents find themselves living paycheck-to-paycheck, one unexpected situation away from financial disaster. Those who wind up facing unexpected and overwhelming debt can find it hard to pay their rent or mortgage, keep the lights and water on and even put food on the table. In desperation, these individuals may turn to family and friends or something like a payday loan, for assistance. However, when these resources dry up, these individuals can still be left struggling.
