Are holiday plans included in your child custody agreement?

The holidays are here, and for many separated or divorced parents in New Jersey, that could mean a complicated situation in terms of child custody, especially if there is no official custody order in place. There are some things parents can do, though, to protect their kids from unnecessary stress and confusion, so let's consider some options.

Survey: 9 in 10 Americans say discussing end-of-life care important

The holiday season will soon be in full swing, and families throughout New Jersey will gather to enjoy the festivities. While the holidays are a wonderful time to remember and appreciate our shared past, some families these days are also using the holidays to discuss what is often a more uncertain aspect of life: the future.

Does cohabiting automatically end alimony payments in New Jersey?

One thing to keep in mind when planning your estate is that certain assets, such as retirement accounts and life insurance policies, have beneficiary designations that could override the terms set out in a will.

Who should have a voice in your estate plan?

Many people get married with love in their hearts and eyes on the future, but too few people think of their marriage in terms of estate planning. Really, though, the two go hand in hand, and people in New Jersey would be wise to begin the ongoing process of estate planning long before they reach old age. Then, along the way, you're likely to have to update the plan as life changes.
