If you are like most people in Illinois, you do not go to work every day expecting to get hurt. However, a job-related accident and resulting injury can happen at any time, in any type of industry or job. When these events do occur, it is important that you know what type of benefits may be available to you and your family.
Most people who get married in Illinois do not plan to divorce. Couples set up their home, travel, collect art, open joint bank accounts and move forward in the next phase of life. However, if the writing is on the wall and divorce seems imminent, you can prepare for a smooth separation and protect your assets. At Soffietti, Johnson, Teegen, Argueta & Bawcum, LTD, we often assist clients with family law matters, including prenuptial agreements, divorce and child custody.
