When siblings fight over an estate plan

Estate plans can give rise to all sorts of difficulties, not only for those who set one up but for their loved ones also. For example, disagreements may surface for a variety of reasons and it is crucial to handle disputes properly. Unfortunately, some people are unable to successfully resolve a dispute when one arises, and this can have a detrimental impact on their relationships with family members and their emotions and finances. Moreover, these disputes sometimes involve siblings, which can be especially difficult due to sibling rivalry, lasting disagreements and other issues.

High-asset divorce and unwanted attention

We have covered various facets of the divorce process, but some people have a particularly hard time when they end their marriage. For example, a couple with children may find that their divorce is stressful due to child support or custody matters. Moreover, someone with a lot of assets may have a difficult time due to property division. Furthermore, some high-asset divorces involve celebrities and politicians, which can also create stress due to the widespread attention that a couple receives (including negative and unwanted attention).

Is it a good idea to write your own will?

If you're currently estate planning in Michigan, you may have considered writing your own will. While there is a wide range of resources out there that allow you to do just that, you may want to think twice before setting out on your own.

How to avoid a bitter divorce battle

When it comes to divorce, the most common stories people seem to share are those that have to do with dramatic court battles. These long and drawn-out conflicts create trauma for the whole family, especially when there are children. 

Divorcing from a workaholic

A marriage may be brought to an end for any number of reasons, some of which are completely unexpected (an affair, a domestic violence incident and so on). In other instances, a couple may have been able to see their marriage crumbling over a period of many years and divorce may not come as a surprise. For example, some people are unhappy in their marriage because their spouse is a workaholic and they do not want to live with their partner any longer. For some, counseling may be able to help a couple patch things together, while other marriages cannot be salvaged.
