3 questions to ask your medical power of attorney

Recent news headlines should be enough for anyone to consider his or her future medical care. To be sure your relatives, friends, doctors, spiritual advisors and others respect your wishes, you probably want to draft a comprehensive health care directive. You do not want to leave your health care to chance. Regrettably, many New Jersey residents have not yet taken this important step.

New Jersey estate litigation: How to keep stress low

If someone has named you as an executor of a New Jersey estate, it's a good idea to make sure you understand all the duties and obligations that entails. Estate litigation can be a complex, stressful process. Perhaps, you are an heir or beneficiary to someone's estate. Maybe you have been designated to have power of attorney for someone who is now incapacitated.

What does an elder law attorney do?

New Jersey residents who are getting on in years may not like thinking about end-of-life matters, but this is something they may want to think about sooner rather than later. Why? Without putting plans in place and having certain legal documents created, in the event of incapacitation or death, senior citizens may be taken advantage of or have their final wishes ignored. These things can be avoided by turning to an elder law attorney to complete end-of-life planning.

Estate planning is a must for new parents

Welcoming a baby into one's home can be an exciting, albeit frightening thing. It is natural to want to protect children from all the bad in the world, but not all parents in New Jersey or elsewhere take steps to safeguard their kids in the event they are no longer around to care for them. While no one thinks that estate planning and starting a family go hand-in-hand, they certainly do.

4 estate planning professionals who owe you a fiduciary duty

A fiduciary is a person who has a legal or ethical obligation to advance the financial interests of another person. To do so, fiduciaries must provide competent service and avoid conflicts of interest. Unfortunately, though, that does not always happen. There are a variety of ways for a fiduciary to breach his or her obligations to you. 

Accused of executor misconduct?

There is nothing easy about being named the executor of an estate. The individual in this position has a significant amount of responsibility. While most executors can make it through the probate process in New Jersey without any hiccups, others may find themselves dealing with a number of problems, some that may ultimately lead to them being accused of executor misconduct.

Legal counsel can help file or fight estate litigation claims

Closing out a loved one's estate, whether in New Jersey or elsewhere, is not always an easy affair. Some individuals may not be happy with how things are being handled and may want to file claims against those believed responsible -- such as the executor, trustee or family members. Whether you think something is wrong or you are accused of wrong-doing, legal counsel can help you fight estate litigation claims in or out of court.
