Dividing debts in an Illinois divorce

Many people here in Illinois can attest to the fact that ending a marriage affects the financial stability of both parties. While some of this is attributed to the division of assets and the increase in bills that come from supporting two households instead of one with the same monetary resources, that is not the only source of an economic downturn. The division of debts is another consideration in a divorce that many people tend not to want to think about, or forget about in the beginning.

Beer companies settle contentious business litigation

Times are tough for everyone as many individuals and businesses here in Illinois can attest. A leaner economy appears to be behind some contentious business litigation between MillerCoors and Pabst Brewing Company. The matter recently went to trial, but instead of waiting for a verdict, the two companies recently reached a settlement.

Now may be the time to enter that divorce settlement

It is December, and the year is rapidly drawing to a close. Even though the holidays tend to take up a significant amount of time, couples still attempting to resolve their divorce issues may want to speed up the process. If Illinois residents started out battling over their settlements, they may want to take a second look and perhaps make a more concerted effort to get that settlement completed before the end of the year.
