Keeping your emotions under control during your divorce

As your divorce begins, experiencing the emotional turmoil of your uncertain future is bound to become a prevalent burden. At Essig Law Office, we understand the challenges of getting divorced and are committed to helping people who are seeking a divorce in Illinois to get through the process as efficiently as possible. 

How can a prenuptial agreement protect your future?

It is impossible to predict the future, but there are steps you can take today to protect your long-term interests. One of the ways you can do this is by drafting a prenuptial agreement before you marry. This may not seem like a romantic thing to do or even a practical step for you, but there are many benefits to considering this option. 

What should you know about your lender?

When you are buying or selling properties in Illinois, one of the professionals you will need to negotiate with is your lender. Your lender will oversee the financial aspect of your latest investment and secure an interest rate for you, as well as lay out the conditions for your payments for the property. As you work to develop a relationship with your lender, it is important to ask the right questions so you can verify that your initiatives will be observed. 

Parental alienation can be incredibly harmful for everyone

When parents in Illinois are staring down a divorce, the thought of how their relationship change will affect their own relationships with their children can be daunting and terrifying. In situations where a couple has vehement anger toward each other, parental alienation may be a very real risk. While it may not appear to affect anyone besides the children of the parents, this damaging "solution" to bitter battles can actually be incredibly harmful to everyone involved. 

Learning how to prevent legal issues in real estate

The real estate industry in Illinois is full of competition with people strategizing on many different levels to get their properties bought and sold. As with any other industry, legal issues can sometimes ruin a potentially promising sale if inadequate measures are taken to protect both parties from the start of transactions. 

Can an unsecured creditor collect debts when you sell your home?

If you plan to sell your Illinois home for a profit so that you can pay off any outstanding debts you have incurred, you may want to think twice. While selling your home is not a bad idea, know that you may not be in control of the proceeds once your home does go off the market. This is because a creditor may have already claimed dibs on your property.
