How to avoid a probate that drags on for years

Probate is a long process. It is necessary that the courts allow plenty of time to verify the identity of your heirs, the value of your property and the validity of your will. Your creditors must also have a chance to claim what you still owe at the time of your demise. All of this may take about nine months or longer, but this time frame depends on many factors.

Estate planning can avoid an inheritance fight

You may find yourself ready to begin an estate plan. Estate planning is truly a positive process. Not only do you get to pass along your accumulated wealth, and leave your mark on the world, but by having a plan it will ease the stress on friends and relatives. They will be able to follow your written preferences and will have few questions about what you really wanted.

Sharing your estate plans with loved ones

Do you make a to-do list each day, or do you take each task as it comes? When you go to the store, do you have a list, or do you grab what you see and hope you don't forget anything? Did you plan ahead for things like your wedding, the purchase of your home, your vacation and your retirement? Or did you fly by the seat of your pants and pray you didn't run out of money?

Have you done yourself in with do-it-yourself estate planning?

Many New Jersey residents consider having an estate plan an important aspect of their lives. Having end-of-life documents in place could help alleviate some of the burden that surviving family members may face in the wake of your death. However, if you did not create those documents correctly or they do not cover certain aspects of your estate, complications could arise.

Types of business entities: The general partnership

If you are considering starting a new business, then congratulations are in order! Few things satisfy the entrepreneurial spirit like a new venture. As you begin the process of bringing your vision to fruition, you may find yourself contemplating what type of business entity would best serve your purposes.

Providing for a special needs child after your death

Having a child with special needs comes with its own set of challenges. As a parent, you more than likely do whatever you can to give that child a good life. Part of doing so involves providing for him or her financially. During your life, this may not always be easy, but you work every day to do so.

Leaving your business in good hands

As a New Jersey small business owner, you know how difficult it can be to keep everything afloat. From daily expenses to future planning, there are many things for you to manage, control and carry out. It is normal to become wrapped up in the present, but it is also crucial for the longevity of your business to plan for the future as well.
