Not all people have children. Illinois residents who don't have kids still need to take the time for estate planning. People still need to stipulate how they would like their assets divided upon their deaths since dying intestate -- or without a will -- can cause all kinds of problems whether there are children in the picture or not.
With the numbers of disasters happening in the world today -- fires, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes and others -- individuals may be thinking about how to make their important estate documents ready for a possible apocalypse. In the blink of an eye, life can change. Illinois residents may want to make sure than any estate planning they've done reflects unforeseen events.
