Suggestions for maintaining mental health through a divorce

Often, many divorcing couples in Illinois become so focused on what their ex is doing, how things are unfolding and achieving desirable outcomes, that they may forget to take proper care of themselves. One area of health that can decline greatly without the right attention is a person's mental condition. Even during a process as volatile and stressful as divorce, people should remember to support and maintain their mental well-being to prevent unnecessary stress, anxiety and long-lasting emotional trauma.

What is and is not covered by title insurance

When making a real estate purchase in Illinois, a buyer receives the title that proclaims him or her the new owner and the recipient of the rights that go with ownership. If there are past errors or issues attached to that title, it could cause expensive problems for the new owner. FindLaw explains that title insurance policies often provide coverage for the costs of clearing the issues off the title.
