Married couples often want to do pretty much everything with each other. That often includes the way in which they do estate planning, which can include the writing of joint wills primarily so that everything will be left to the surviving spouse. In Illinois, a joint will can't be changed or revoked by just one spouse; both have to agree to any changes.
Time waits for no one. And as much as children don't like to think about it, their parents will get old and may need their help. Long term care planning in Illinois is essential for helping the elderly to continue to lead productive, independent lives. When that is no longer a possibility, planning can ensure senior citizens are given the best care possible when they can no longer care for themselves.
