Crushing medical debt can lead to bankruptcy

Americans seek bankruptcy relief for a variety of reasons, but one that often stands out is medical care costs. For many people, only one catastrophic injury or illness stands between them and having to face financial ruin. The unexpected financial hit can change the course of their entire life.

Why people may choose irrevocable trusts

Many people in Illinois may be thinking about how to handle their assets in the future. People want to ensure that their loved ones are provided for while also avoiding excessive estate taxes and fees. Trusts may be a good option to include as part of the estate planning process, because they provide greater privacy, flexibility and control. There are several different types of trusts that people may make use of as part of their estate plan, including irrevocable trusts.

Establishing paternity in Illinois

One of the most fundamental concepts of family law in Illinois is the concept of parental rights. Mothers generally have no problem establishing that they have given birth to the baby in question, but fathers can have far greater difficulty in proving that they are a baby's father, especially if the mother is not willing to cooperate. This means that it can be difficult for a father to secure his parental rights.
