Yakima estate planning attorney. Wills, power of attorney, etc

The subject of estate planning is hard for some people to even think about, let alone discuss. However, being prepared can make all the difference. Estate planning does not only refer to death; it also refers to life altering events such as a serious accident where you are unable to make decisions for yourself. If you were in a serious accident today, who would make medical decisions for you? Who would handle your financial obligations while you were unable? Without estate planning, medical decisions may be left to someone who does not know your wishes. Without a will, it may be difficult or impossible for family or friends to access your finances to take care of obligations. Estate planning clearly states your wishes in writing and alleviates the added stress to family and friends of having to make decisions in a time when they are upset or grieving. Estate planning packers include a will, directive to physicians (living will) and a power of attorney for a reasonable price. Call to schedule an appointment and have peace of mind knowing that you are prepared in the event of an accident.Yakima attorney

Even marriages that have lasted more than 20 years sometimes end in divorce. When they do, asset division typically presents some challenging issues. Actors Jane Seymour and James Keach recently agreed to split their assets evenly, though their agreement obviously required negotiations in order to accomplish that goal. The settlement was recently accomplished in a state outside Washington.

Avoiding pitfalls when raising a child after divorce

Some Washington marriages last a lifetime. Others end in divorce. Though one divorce proceeding may be rather simple and merely be a matter of signing pertinent documents and agreeing on a settlement, another can be emotionally charged and quite complicated, especially when soon-to-be former spouses will be raising a child after divorce.
