Why unmarried couples need to think about estate planning

Marriage is usually the next natural step for people who are in committed relationships, but it is not for everyone. There are actually many couples who choose to live and build lives with one another in Lake Charles without actually typing the know. While an unmarried couple may have created a successful life together, they might not realize just how difficult some things will be should either die without an estate plan.

How to bring up estate planning during the holidays

The holiday season is the time of year when many families in Lake Charles do their best to get everyone together, even if it means traveling from out of state. From buying gifts to deciding on holiday meals, a lot of planning can go into these gatherings. But families might be missing out on a valuable opportunity to talk about a difficult topic. Although it might feel counterintuitive to talk about end of life affairs in between celebrations, this could actually be a great time to bring up wills, powers of attorney and other estate planning affairs.

Financial abuse is a common violation of elder law

Parents, grandparents, and even aunts and uncles spend much of their lives loving and caring for the younger generations.

Most people do their very best to provide that care, but not everyone is quite so dedicated. Fiduciary financial abuse is a violation of elder law and an unfortunate reality that affects many elderly people in Lake Charles.
