Jackknifing dangers

Any type of car accident in Illinois can be dangerous, but those involving large trucks are more likely to result in serious or fatal consequences. One cause of trucking accidents is jackknifing, something that often results in a forceful crash. If you or a loved one were injured or killed in an accident caused by a truck that jackknifed, we at the Law Office of Kerley and Associates can ensure that you get the help and compensation you deserve.

How do prenuptial agreements work in Illinois?

A prenuptial agreement is entered into by persons before they are married with respect to their rights and obligations during marriage. Generally, the agreement, which is the same as a contract, deals with the use and disposition of property during the marriage, at the end of a marriage, and in the event a spouse dies. Premarital agreements are often sought where one or both parties have substantial wealth and assets independent of their prospective spouse or where the parties have been previously married with children who may lay claim to the property of one or other. In other words, prenuptial agreements are a way for parties to decide in advance that they do not want the default state rules to govern their property and rights in the event of divorce or death. In Illinois, prenuptial agreements are valid so long as they comply with certain statutory requirements.
