Remarriage and the benefits of a QTIP trust

Gone are the days when a couple married during their early 20s, welcomed and raised children together and lived out the rest of their lives together. Today, with the U.S. divorce rate hovering around 50 percent, familial structures within the U.S. are more complex than ever. Adding to the confusion are the estimated 42 million U.S. adults who report being married two or more times.

Diminished mental capacity, undue influence and challenging a will

For many adult children, concerns over the physical and mental health of one’s parents are often a chief concern. In addition to worrying about an elderly parent falling or suffering a major health event like a heart attack, a parent's diminished cognitive health may also be concerning. According to the Alzheimer's Association, an estimated 11 percent of U.S. adults age 65 and older are currently suffering from the disease. For those who live to be 85 or older, incidences of the disease increase to 32 percent.

How to help loved ones who are victims of power of attorney abuse

Most people in New York and across the country offer assistance to their loved ones as they age. From offering help doing daily chores to finding affordable health care options, there are a countless number of ways in which we can offer our loved ones help during a time in their lives when they perhaps need it the most.

A living will gives you a voice in critical and personal health care decisions

Anyone who has ever witnessed the physical demise of a loved one understands the tremendous emotional and mental pain and sadness that are tied to such an event. In cases where the life of a parent, spouse or adult child hangs in the balance after a serious heart attack or car accident, family members often agonize over questions and decisions related to what a loved one would want with regard to life-saving interventions.
