Financial knowledge is important for later-in-life divorces

The rate of divorce for Americans over 50 has more than doubled in the past 25 years. It's important to note that this rate is continuing to move upward for couples throughout Ohio and the rest of the nation. While divorce always involves an array of practical, emotional and financial challenges, the process can be even more difficult for older couples who have been married for a long time.

How to avoid undue influence when helping parents with a will

Many times, heirs feel as if they should have gotten more from their parents' or relatives' will, or they feel like a sibling got too much. If you think one of your siblings or relatives might make this complaint against you, it is important to take preventative steps to stave off claims of undue influence especially if you are helping your parents with their will.

What to know about creating an estate plan

Most Ohio residents can benefit from creating an estate plan -- even those who don't have a lot of wealth or valuable property. While many believe that estate planning only relates to how assets are distributed after a person passes, it could actually accomplish a wide range of goals. For instance, an estate plan may appoint guardians for minor children or dictate how a body is handled after passing.
