When couples in Illinois get a divorce, they will need to divide their property. If one of the parties owns a business, the situation can become complicated unless there is a pre- or postnuptial agreement that outlines what will happen to the company in case of divorce.
Identifying interested parties is a very important consideration in probate litigation in Illinois. The party who starts the contestation of a will may be surprised to discover that the number of interested parties may be significantly higher than initially thought. This is because interested parties are not limited to the parties that are listed in the last will and testament.
