Risking estate administration and probate without legal help

When a family remains close, it is common for grandparents to want to leave a little something for their loved ones. Those in Michigan who have particular wishes for their assets create a will or trust by speaking with an attorney with experience in estate administration and probate. Without leaving a plan, well-meaning grandparents may instead leave headaches for their loved ones.

Couple loses child custody when DHS says their IQs are too low

Being a parent requires many important qualities. Parenting involves patience, selflessness, devotion and other strengths, many of which Michigan mothers and fathers learn along the way. However, the parents of two boys in another state are fighting for child custody because the Department of Human Services apparently believes they do not have IQs sufficient for raising children. Both parents have IQs in the 70s, below the average of 90 to 110.

Criminal defense may fight against tainted evidence

Those who are accused of crimes in Michigan depend on the justice system allowing a fair and impartial examination of the evidence before convicting them of crimes. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Part of building a strong criminal defense involves disputing the findings of forensic experts in crime labs. However, forensic labs in more than 20 states are under suspicion of various types of misconduct, and that often leads to people being wrongly convicted of crimes.

Is my spouse hiding assets in our divorce?

When any marriage begins to fall apart, especially those with significant assets, it is easy for distrust to become a factor in the divorce process. Many people believe that their spouse is trying to cheat them out of a fair divorce settlement by hiding assets.

Infertility may not be indicator of divorce

Many Michigan couples who marry look forward to raising children. In fact, for some, having children is a lifelong dream, and they may plan for it years ahead of getting married by making lists of baby names, reading books about child rearing and even buying baby clothes. However, when time passes after the wedding and no children arrive, the couple may begin to have concerns about fertility. In some circles, it has long been assumed that infertility is one leading cause of divorce.

Wills and trusts offer different benefits

People may put off estate planning for a number of reasons. Some in Michigan may think such a plan is unimportant, while others feel they don't have sufficient assets to make it worthwhile. For some, the thought of creating wills and trusts is overwhelming, and others may be unsure which option will work best for their situation.
