Estate planning is more than listing how to distribute assets

When you are creating estate planning documents, you likely want to make sure you have all the bases covered. There are some common mistakes that can botch an otherwise solid estate plan. New Jersey residents should be aware of these mistakes so they can avoid making them when they are preparing their estate planning documents.

Food for thought on including investments in property division

Property division is one of the most complex aspects of developing a divorce settlement, especially for couples with assets other than savings or checking accounts. It's a good idea to examine these types of assets before deciding whether or not to include them in a marital property settlement.

A woman from Mount Holly, New Jersey, had no idea she would one day have to shoulder the responsibility of caring for her aging parents, but that's exactly what she is facing right now.
