Illinois estate planning: What are advance directives?

If a person becomes incapacitated, what happens to him or her? Who will make any medical decisions for that individual? Illinois residents who want a say in their medical care even if they are not in a state to express their wishes have a way to do it, and that way is by setting up advance directives. This they can do while going through the estate planning process.

Facing foreclosure after defaulting on a home loan?

Many Illinois residents do their best to pay their bills in full and on time. Unfortunately, life happens, sometimes money is tight and something has to give. So, they stop making their mortgage payments for the time being. Those who default on their home loans may find themselves facing foreclosure. What can they do if this happens?

The ins and outs of Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy

When really struggling financially, it is common to look into all of one's debt relief options. Bankruptcy, whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, are certainly good options for Illinois residents -- under the right circumstances. This week, this column will address some of the ins and outs of filing for bankruptcy.

Keeping your home when you file bankruptcy

If you are like many Illinois homeowners, your home is your biggest asset. Your mortgage payments likely are one of the biggest monthly payments you make. If you have accumulated excessively large credit card balances with large aggregate payments as well, your monthly income may not stretch far enough to cover everything.

Debt collectors still seeking payment after Chapter 7 discharge

Every year, numerous individuals in Illinois and across the county turn to bankruptcy to achieve financial relief. Chapter 7 filings, in particular, are for those who lack the income necessary to make any type of payment to their creditors. When a Chapter 7 filing is approved, all qualifying debt is automatically discharged -- meaning the filer no longer is responsible for it. Unfortunately, months or years after the fact, many individuals find themselves once again dealing with creditors trying to collect on these past debts.
