Elder law: Man indicated for elder abuse

Nursing home administrators in New Jersey and across the country have certain responsibilities to their patients. In addition to ensuring that employees have the necessary training and experience to provide appropriate care, they must also ensure that these employees are dedicated to meeting the best interests of their patients and that no violations of elder law occur. Patients who are harmed as a result of employees at nursing homes may choose to file a civil lawsuit.

Don't let digital assets be the reason for estate litigation

There are a number of things that can result in claims being made against an estate. Failing to protect and manage digital assets is one of them. Much of New Jersey residents' lives is now online, as it is just the way the world is going. If digital assets are not included in an estate plan, or the proper measures are not taken to ensure they can be accessed and passed on to beneficiaries, estate litigation may be inevitable.

Estate planning when one's heir is an opioid addict

For New Jersey residents who are planning their estates, figuring out how assets should be passed on to heirs can be a difficult thing, especially if one's heir is an opioid addict. Will this person use his or her inheritance responsibly? Is passing assets on to an opioid addict even the best decision? The opioid crisis in America is at an all time high and those going through the estate planning process may want to know what options they have to ensure that their assets are fully protected, even from their heirs' shortcomings.

When estate planning, don't forget this person

When drawing up an estate plan, many people think about their loved ones and where they want their assets to go. They concern themselves with making sure everything is clear and concise, so as to help prevent any conflicts among family members. They are so concerned about making sure everyone else is okay and taken care of that they sometimes forget about themselves. When estate planning, New Jersey residents should not forget that they deserve legal protections too. This is not something that is just meant for one's loved ones.

Estate planning and mental capacity

The aging process can bring numerous health problems, including conditions that can affect cognitive ability. When the ability to process information and make appropriate decisions declines, this can impact the validity of various estate-planning steps.
