Don't be afraid to seek help with estate administration

The loss of a loved one is never easy. Whether it is a sudden loss in a fatal car crash or some time coming as is the case in a fatal illness, once a person passes away, his or her loved ones are left to figure out how to move on with their lives.

How do testamentary trusts compare to living trusts?

However, trusts can be broken down into two basic categories that may make them easier to understand.

Even sellers in New Jersey can perform "due diligence"

The buying and selling of businesses in New Jersey is a common event, and something that keeps the state's economy running. However, business transactions, like potential mergers and acquisitions, should not be rushed through to ensure that the agreed upon sale price is fair.
