Real estate and other assets require a good estate plan

A lot of people wait until their golden years to make a solid plan for their estate after death. Many parents start to think about it once they have seen their child grow. But no time is too early for estate planning. Estate planning is so much more than deciding who gets your things.

Mediation gains momentum as a solution to estate disputes

Probate court was designed as a legal forum for anyone to approach certain basic forms of justice, such as the appointment of a legal guardian or the disposition of a deceased person's estate. When a dispute arises between parties, probate court can help sort it out and find an equitable solution.

How and why do I become my relative's legal guardian?

The term "legal guardian" may seem simple, but the implications of that title and its responsibility can be vital and complex. Connecticut assigns guardianships very carefully, and applicants for the position should know how the state does so.

Families benefit from estate planning well before it is needed

The mystery of death is how, no matter how healthy a person might be, it may come at any time. It is many people's nightmare to find out they have a prognosis of a few months to live. If that moment occurs in reality, the last thing that you would want to do is deal with the necessary end-of-life plans to pass assets and wealth onto the next generation.

Reasons to never make a DIY will

Most people, even those who are financially secure, want to find ways to save money. There are many ways in life to do this, but you should not try to save money when it comes to writing a will. Unfortunately, many throughout Connecticut continue to utilize DIY wills, and this comes with immense risks.
