What should be in your real estate contract?

Creating a real estate contract for your Illinois property should be a carefully navigated process to avoid leaving out valuable components that could destroy your success in the industry. As with many property owners, you may be wondering what should be included in your contract to protect you, your assets and your success. 

How you can be an effective non-custodial parent

If you and your spouse have chosen to pursue a divorce in Illinois, you may have begun to face the uncertainty of parenting the children you have had together. Often, primary custody is awarded to one parent with required visitations requested from the other parent. Your judge will most likely award custody based on factors including the health, financial stability, location and emotional state of you and your spouse. At Essig Law Office, we are familiar with the complications that often accompany divorce proceedings.

Planning for retirement and divorce

There are many different hurdles you may be working through if you are planning on ending your marriage, whether you have strong emotions, are worried about how your finances will be impacted by the split, or are unsure of how to tell relatives about the divorce. However, these matters can be even more challenging if you have recently retired or plan to retire soon. If you are in Washington or any part of Illinois, our law firm knows the diverse challenges you may be experiencing.

What you should remember when it comes to short sales

If you are curious about properties that are listed as short sales in Illinois, you may be interested in avoiding common mistakes that can result in disappointment when dealing with these types of real estate. At Essig Law Office, we are well-versed in the complexities of buying and selling real estate, and we have helped many folks just like you to coordinate successful outcomes. 

Is my relationship headed for divorce?

After several years of marriage and the birth of one or several kids, you may feel like your relationship is progressing along nicely. There may be times where you feel like your spouse could become more involved with your marriage and help around the home more, but overall you have no complaints. Many people in Illinois who end up getting divorced from their partners were under the impression that their marriages were fine. They were blindsided to learn that their relationships were not as happy and healthy as they thought. 

Maintaining financial stability through a divorce

Each year, many Illinois couples turn to divorce as the most viable option of settling relationship woes and regaining personal happiness and independency. For many people, while a viable solution, divorce can wreak havoc on finances. Understanding how to avoid debilitating financial setbacks can help divorcing couples maintain stability and reassurance. 

Should you hire a lawyer when you buy a house?

The largest purchase that most Illinois residents make is buying a house. After spending a significant amount of time finding the house that's perfect for you, the last thing you want is to find out after the purchase that a mistake happened, the seller failed to make a disclosure or the title has issues.

The eviction process in Illinois

Landlords in Illinois may run into a situation where they need to evict a renter. The eviction process is highly regulated by the law. It is essential for a landlord to follow the law during the process to protect his or herself from legal liability. Doing something illegal could cause a landlord to face a lawsuit. It could also lead to difficulties in removing the tenants.
