Steps to take in preparation for closing on a property

Whether it is someone's first time buying a home or they have purchased one in the past in Illinois, the excitement and anticipation can be met with a bit of hesitation as the closing date nears. Many people face concerns about whether or not they will be approved for financing, whether or not the contingencies are ones they can uphold and even a little bit of nerves as they question if they are making the right decision. Closing on a home is a big deal no doubt, and the more prepared people are to begin the process, the more efficient and effective it will be. 

Important factors to consider before buying residential property

Buying a home in Illinois is an exciting step for many people, but it is one of the most significant financial and legal decisions a person will make in a lifetime. Due to the serious nature of this type of purchase, it is beneficial for any buyer to carefully consider all options and ask the right questions. If you are thinking about a residential real estate purchase, you would be wise to have the right information before moving forward. 

Simplifying your divorce

People often have negative connotations come to mind when they think about the divorce process, especially if they are preparing for a divorce or are already going through one with their spouse. To be sure, divorce can be difficult, even for those who are fully prepared and able to cooperate with their former partner. However, there are many different strategies that can be employed to make divorce easier, and we will focus on some in this blog post. Simplifying divorce is especially important for parents, those with a high net worth and anyone who is particularly concerned about divorce-related challenges.

Understanding divorce from the perspective of your children

One of the most difficult parts of your pending divorce may be seeing the effect it is having on your children. Despite the growing divide between you and your spouse, you both share something in common, something critical, the children you have had together. At Essig Law Office in Illinois, we have helped many families through the painful and challenging course of a divorce. 

Can you stop your ex-spouse from taking the kids out of state?

As a parent, you may have a difficult enough time as is saying goodbye to your children for the weekend, knowing full well that they will be safe and snug in their other parent's house across town. If an emergency occurs, you can be there in 10 minutes, 15 minutes tops, and if you cannot be there, your mom, dad, sister or other trusted friend can. That confidence goes out the window when your ex tells you he or she plans to take your kids out of Illinois for vacation.

Debt division in a divorce

For many people in Illinois, the mention of a divorce may conjure up challenging negotiations between spouses about how they will split up their marital assets. While this can definitely be a major part of a divorce, it is important for people to remember that they must also figure out how to split up their debts when they get divorced.
