WILLS, TRUSTS, AND ESTATE PLANNING

 Creating a will is one of the best ways that a person can determine what will happen to themselves, minor children, pets, and their things after they pass. A properly executed will creates a legally binding document that determines the outcome for the things a person leaves behind. This helps loved ones to have a smooth transition instead of headaches, expenses and uncertainty.

A properly designed and funded trust can protect a family’s assets and avoid the probate process all together. We draft easy to understand trusts for clients wanting to take an active step at ensuring that their family is financially secure for many years to come.

The Attorneys at Fleming & Ulkus have years of experience of helping our clients to divest estates of all sizes from a few thousand dollars to multi-millions of dollars. With our help you can determine your legacy to your family, your community, your friends, or virtually anything else.

FAMILY LAW / DIVORCE

The attorneys at Fleming & Ulkus understand that when a client is going through a divorce, it can be the most trying time in their lives. Illinois is a no-fault divorce state in which spouses are not required to prove that the other caused the breakdown of the marriage. Either you or your spouse may obtain a divorce, even if one of you does not consent to the divorce. 

In most divorces, the primary issues to be decided are alimony, spousal support, property division, and if there are children, time sharing and child support. When spouses agree on how to resolve these issues through mediation, they can usually obtain a divorce quickly. However, in many cases, divorcing spouses have disputes regarding their post-marriage financial arrangements and other issues pertaining to their children. Property division and alimony are usually the most contested issues in a divorce proceeding. As such, it is vital to receive early advice of a family law attorney so that it may favorably impact the final result. The Law Offices of Fleming & Ulkus can also help you draft prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. The benefit of these voluntary agreements can help resolve issues concerning debts, expenses, life insurance, retirement plans, property rights, alimony and inheritances.
