Jerry Lewis disinherits his children in his will

Jerry Lewis was known for many things. Generations of people in Michigan and across the world appreciated his brilliant comedy in movies and stand-up routines. Each year at summer's end, Lewis's telethon raised millions of dollars to find a cure for children afflicted with muscular dystrophy. While other children benefitted from Lewis's charitable acts, the comedian's own children did not. The wills and trusts of many celebrities have recently raised eyebrows, and Jerry Lewis may have done the same with his estate plan.

Communication is vital in child custody matters

Many Michigan parents discover how compatible their parenting styles are only after they have begun to raise their children. If the parents are able to adapt and compromise, the level of stress while raising children may be significantly lower than within those families where parents struggle for control of child-rearing. When parents find themselves in the midst of a divorce and child custody issues, that opposition in parenting may cause stress, both for them and, more significantly, for the children.

Study ranks rate of divorce based on occupations

Whether from a desire to find a solution or simply a fascination with statistics, analysts continue to study and rearrange data concerning marriages and divorces. Michigan couples may be encouraged one year and frustrated the next to hear the interpretation of data that supports longevity in marriage before dousing hope with dismal news of high divorce rates. Recently, however, a study has ranked divorce potential according to employment industries.

Estate and probate administration complicated by lost heir

In many cases, after a loved one dies, probate goes smoothly and assets are distributed to designated heirs within a few months. However, what happens during estate and probate administration when an heir cannot be located? Since the executor of an estate must make every reasonable effort to find and inform all heirs of their inheritances, losing track of an heir may mean long delays in the closing of an estate.
