Diapers, bottles and wills -- new parents and estate planning

Most new parents have a dozen things to worry about. From feedings to sleeping habits to what may seem like endless hours of crying, it might not feel as if there is much time for anything else. However, Lake Charles parents might want to make room for at least one more thing -- estate planning.

Louisiana man faces felony charge for illegal dumping

A Louisiana man was recently arrested for allegedly violating a number of environmental laws. The owner and operator of a Louisiana-based disposal company is facing a felony charge of dumping solid waste into state waters and two misdemeanors for illegally disposing of solid waste. Authorities also charged him with 12 misdemeanor criminal trespassing counts.

Does estate planning stop with the will?

Having a will is extremely important for every adult in Lake Charles. It does not matter how young or old a person is or whether he or she only has a few assets -- a will can address a number of things. However, simply having a will does not mean that a person has approached estate planning as thoroughly as he or she should.

Criminal defense: Man charged for ambulance theft

Police claim that a man in Louisiana recently stole an emergency ambulance. Authorities charged the man for driving without a license and for theft of a motor vehicle, and a judge set his bond at $20,150. Both of these allegations are serious, and a vigorous approach to criminal defense is usually necessary for defendants in Lake Charles.

Bail allows for your release, but it may not be easy to raise

If you watch enough TV crime dramas, you may hear defense attorneys and prosecutors arguing in front of the judge about the amount of bail the defendant should pay. For the sake of drama, the defense may suggest that the accused pay nothing, and the prosecutor may suggest a very high sum. The fictional judge often takes the middle road.

Safely securing your estate planning documents

It takes a certain amount of time, thought and effort to create an estate plan. From creating wills and trusts to signing powers of attorney, it is important to be as thorough as possible when estate planning. However, other than updating those documents as needed, some people may not give much thought about what to do with them after the planning process is done. This means that many people in Louisiana might not be storing their estate plans safely.
